I desperately wanted to write a glowing review of this product and rave about how, as I had heard others say, it has dramatically improved my workflow in the studio. Certainly, any device that is designed to move me away from the mouse to a more hands on control surface was very attractive. Today is the day, however, that I finally admit I wasted my money on a product that looked pretty cool and had some decent reviews (I chose to ignore the negative ones).

Though it is primarily designed as a companion for Pro Tools, I was encouraged to learn that it would still work well with Logic Pro X. The ability to customize the unit so that all your shortcuts are only a button press away is a great idea but in practice, I've still not figured out how this is done (for instance, a single button press to insert my favourite 3rd party plugin on a channel strip - apparently this can't be done so back to the mouse I go!) and the manual has not really helped. As you read the manual, it does give you the sense that it would easier if I were running Pro Tools and not Logic.

In use, what could be achieved by 2 clicks of the mouse, often needs over a dozen button presses on the Artist Control although I'm sure that if I were able to customize the thing, I could sort that out. The fact is that in use, it's just far easier to reach for the mouse.

The faders and rotary knobs feel really cheap and flimsy too. Certainly don't get the sense of a quality product (which at this price, I feel you should have).

The fact that it freezes mid session on a regular basis is something that I've just come to expect and can adapt too (although I shouldn't have to). A quick reset and we're back in business.

And is is this 'freezing' that has finally convinced me to jump ship. After searching forums, there is a compatibility issue with the latest OS X (Mavericks onwards). Something called App Nap which means the Artist Control just hangs up until you move the mouse. You can be riding the fader and suddenly it stops responding after a few seconds (but you didn't notice because you had your eyes closed while you were trying to get the vocal track to sit perfectly in the mix) and you're left scratching your head as to what's going wrong. I only figured out yesterday that moving the mouse will fix the problem. Though that may be a very simple solution, I'm less than impressed that I should have to do this at all. When I buy a product, I expect it to perform the tasks that I bought it for.

I still want to believe that the Artist Control could be a really useful bit of gear if EUCON was actually fully compatible with OS X and Avid provided some support on how to integrate with Logic X (I know they wouldn't do that). But the fact is, with each new OS X update, things seem to only get more unstable and new problems arise. I haven't got the patience to to keep resetting things and searching forums for help. I just want an expensive product to work!

In summary:
May well be much better when used with Pro Tools
EUCON is clearly not working properly on Yosemite.
It looks pretty cool when you turn it on and the lights flash.

Once again amazing service
