Do ableton plan to support eucon?

eucon is a protocol used by euphonix mixing desks/controllers. The protocol is much faster and supports more features than the old midi standard. It would be nice to utilise this.

    By the way, Mackie Control is a complete hit or miss. I have an Artists Mix that is completely useless with Ableton. I've set up everything correctly but the program just doesn't read it. So not only is the best prosumer protocol not supported but neither is the device. 

    For production and creative Ableton is SUPREME but No eucon + no AU Waves = Toy when it comes to mixing.

    Nope the Euphonix stuff is not Ableton compatible even though it's compatible all other major DAW's. I'm really starting to wonder how much the Ableton guys care about making this program a legit mixing powerhouse because as amazing as Live is it sure does have some SERIOUS drawbacks in the mixing dept.

    Sure do hope Ableton decides to support Eucon. There are no other viable control surfaces out there for serious mixing. I don't mean DJ toys, but a "real" mixing control surface with 100mm motorized faders etc. So Ableton - please support Eucon ASAP unless you can come out with your own similar product even sooner!

    Using a Euphonix Artist Controller with Live requires first setting up EuCon for Mackie Control. Live will then connect via the Mackie Control protocol.

    Go to the Euphonix website and read the application setup manuals: http://euphonix.avid.com/artist/ux/euphonix/artist_downloads.html

    In particular, read the chapters for Ableton Live, Mackie Control and the EUCON Application Setup Guide

    I want an Avid Artist mixer. It's EUCON. Ableton isn't.

    Any known work-around here until the bods at Ableton 'sort it out'?

    I have 2 artist mix's

    I can use them for volume and pan using mackie control mode. It's better than nothing but a real shame they aren't fully supported like Logic, Cubase, Pro Tools. If the controller support was open source we could get a collective going and get it done.

    I can get mackie control emulation to work about half the time with my Avid Artist controllers, and even then it's rudimentary and clunky at best.  I think this is mainly because Avid doesn't make a serious attempt to support it's Mackie control implementation, which is pathetic of them.  But it's also partly because Ableton's mackie control implementation isn't that great either.  It's hard to say who's fault that is from a user's perspective because we can't know which company is dragging it's feet or breaking stuff with new releases.

    Ableton could solve the whole problem by supporting EuCon.  That would be so awesome.  I wonder why they don't...

    I love Live 9 and have a Push for creating music and improvising and playing around... but I really like to mix final pieces with a good mix controller.  I bought an Avid S3 mix controller but like the Avid Artist series controllers they are pretty poorly supported by Ableton...  I really need EuCon support to make this a killer combination from idea to finish and stop me having to always go back to ProTools to do final mix ! :-(

    Ableton has such a great set of parameters to automate it would be really amazing if we could also use one of these EuCon based touch sensitive controllers live and in the studio....  I'm sure Ableton could do another collaboration with another company (like with Akai) and come out with a EuCon based mixing surface of their own too if they put their mind to it ??

    .... here's hoping...

    Yet another reason I have not upgraded to version 9.  

     

    From a user perspective, it appears as if Ableton has made a decision to keep this software focused as primarily a DJ toy.  As others have said, many on here WANT to use this as a professional DAW for recording/mixing, but the development is just not there.

     

    I really want to grow and expand with Ableton, but it requires that Ableton WANTS become more than a DJ / Performance tool.

    Wow.... Still nothing? I've had my euphonix mc mix/mc control setup for 5yrs. They used to work flawlessly and have been hit or miss ever since. What's the deal?

    +1 (or make their own mixing controller).

    I also think Ableton should up their game on the mixing stage of making music. For example having true mono channels would be a plus.

    We surely are missing out on a good mixing controller. I do love those Avid controllers. The "Mix" or surely the "S3" controllers are beauty's. But we need EUCON for those.

    Or Ableton can make there own controller. A 16 motorized channel controller like the S3, but then without the extra's like the sound interface. Just to keep it payable (below €1000, that S3 is really expensive). Push 1 & 2 are great devices for the creation, but for me useless in the end fase. All the other mix controllers are basically toys. 8 Faders are not enough for me, I need at least 16. Also for Ableton there are the "group channels". At on point you just need to change the volume off the grouped channel, but you also want to dig deeper into that group.

    I don't think it should be that hard to build. 16+1 motorised faders, 3 or more rotary knobs per channel, some push buttons, and one long LCD display (like Push 2) crossing the length of the faders to see what the knobs do, and to show the metering for the channels.

    And when owned Push 1 or 2, they could integrate that, make them work together. For example, use the mixer to select channels, and Push for the plugins...
