Avid Control app is everything IC Pro should have been

Post by Dog and Pony » Wed Dec 11, 2019 9:06 pm

The new Avid Control app is out and it's pretty amazing. Some may have noticed that I have been bugging the dev's for well over a year that the IC Pro app and Nuendo's colors don't match. There have also been requests for things like surround panning, to no avail. Well, guess what? All of that and more is available in the FREE Avid control app plus the app is available for both Android and iOS. I've been playing with it and it's pretty awesome plus it no longer appears to cause crashing in N8/N10. At this point I'd suggest to Steinberg that they just stop wasting resources developing IC Pro as Avid has thoroughly thrashed them in this endeavor. John

I had the old version and it was a bit unstable. I never knew if it would work or not. This one looks to be much better although the solo button doesn’t seem to be working. I’ll look deeper tomorrow as it could be a setting.

Seems the solo button activates "Listen" in Nuendo, I haven't had time to see if it's a setting or not.

it is a setting - in the eucontrol app - you can select solo or listen

My main use for iCPro is to permit musicians to set their own mixes on phones/tablets using the Cue Sends in Nuendo.

I can see that the overall level of each Cue Send can be set in the Avid Control app, but I can not see how each Cue Send mix can be adjusted individually on separate devices. This is accomplished in iCPro by selecting what tracks you want to view (All, Cue 1, Cue 2, Cue 3, Cue 4) - the app will then just display the relevant tracks. I can not see how this can be done with Avid Control.

EDIT: I've just looked at the AC user guide and, if I understand it correctly, it seems that if no Avid hardware (S1, S3) is being used only one phone/tablet can be used. This means that it is not possible for musicians to control their own separate mixes with this app. So, for me, iCPro lives on.

hi Chris

obviously everybody has their own usage requirements but I'm pretty sure you can use both ICpro and Avid control simultaneously. So artists can continue to set their cue mix levels in ICpro but you can use Avid control for your own remote mix - best of both worlds

Yes you are right. I was just pointing out that AC is not a complete replacement for iCPro, although it does many things better than the woefully out-of-date iCPro. It just can't do the Cue Mix thing.

not a secret salesman for Avid honest :)

Just a shame that SB don't consider it worthwhile or cost effective to actually update IC Pro to be as good as Avid Control - most of their phone/tablet apps end up being abandonware
