SSL Adds DAW Control to System T - ProSoundNetwork.com
The console can now control Pro Tools, Reaper, Logic and other DAWs.

Oxford, UK (January 17, 2018)—Solid State Logic has leveraged its experience with hybrid production technology to bring its DAW control system to the System T broadcast console.

System T DAW Control makes ergonomic use of the hardware controls within Fader & Master Tiles and System T’s multi-gesture touch screens, according to the company. The DAW Control system uses a HUI implementation, so is designed primarily for use with Pro Tools, and is compatible with Reaper, Logic and any other HUI-compatible DAW.

DAW Control for System T is a free update and is included in the V1.8 release of System T which also includes a collection of new features and system enhancements.

System T DAW control can be configured in banks of eight consecutive channels with a maximum of four banks providing 32 physical console faders for DAW Control. The system can be used to control up to four separate DAWs. There is no limit to the number of tracks in a Pro Tools session that can be accessed as tracks can be scrolled or banked on to the console faders as required using the scroll and bank keys in the Fader Tile.

Pro Tools Memory Locations can also be used to recall specific track layouts. When using System T as the primary control surface for a Pro Tools mix session, configuring two bays as a 32-fader surface and banking in 32 track increments is probably the optimal solution. When Pro Tools is being used as playback source together with other live console inputs the optimal solution is probably configuring a dedicated 16-fader DAW control bay with the other console bays available to handle standard input and output channel paths.

Hardware control is primarily via the System T Fader Tiles with the faders, switches and encoders mapped to DAW mixer functions instead of System T processing. The faders control DAW Track Level and the encoders Track Panning and Send levels. A Flip function allows the faders to set Send levels. Track Arming and Automation modes can be set via the Q switch.
