Take control of Pro Tools with a 24-channel control surface with integrated analogue I/O
Sleek and stylish, the 24-channel C24 control surface provides direct hands-on control of Pro Tools and Pro Tools HD mixing, recording, and editing; a complete array of high-quality analog inputs; and a 5.1 analog monitor section to use with your Pro Tools I/O. It tightly integrates with the latest advancements in Pro Tools software to provide an incredibly powerful and richly featured console option.
Total hands-on control
C24 provides direct hands-on access to recording, editing, routing, and mixing functions in Pro Tools software. The control surface features 24 bankable channel strips, each with a touch-sensitive, motorized fader; high-quality rotary encoder and LED ring; dedicated Mute, Solo, and channel select illuminated buttons; and dedicated Input, Record, EQ, Dynamics, Insert, Send, and Automation buttons. It also features many more Edit commands, windows management controls, and dedicated buttons than its Control|24 predecessor, plus a Soft Keys section that allows future features to be added as Pro Tools software evolves.
Superb mic preamps and analog submixer
C|24 isn't just about controlling tracks; you can connect mics, instruments, and line-level devices directly to the control surface’s audio inputs (via DB25 connections). C24 features 16 super high-quality, low-noise preamps, each with a high-pass filter and variable input gain, that outperform those on Control 24 in every way, including gain, frequency response, signal-to-noise ratio, and more. It also houses an 8-channel stereo line submixer, which can be routed directly to the integrated monitor section, making it easy to mix signals from outboard instruments and gear.
Efficient console ergonomics and integration
C24 is designed to provide you with high workflow efficiency, and offers more dedicated controls and features, though it retains many of the same proven workflows, making upgrading to C|24 an easy transition.Flip mode makes it easy to switch encoder functions to the faders, while dedicated Bank Select and Nudge buttons enable easier Pro Tools mixer navigation. C24 also offers an updated transport section for machine control integration; Windows Configurations and Memory Locations modes for creating, editing, and recalling these settings; an LED timecode display that shows absolute time, SMPTE, Feet/Frames, and Bars/Beats; and a jog/shuttle wheel for scrubbing, editing, bank-nudging, and navigation.
Professional 5.1 analog monitor section
The monitoring section in C24 has been completely redesigned and improved, providing many features found on Avid's coveted ICON integrated console systems. It features a professional, integrated 5.1 surround analog monitor section; 5.1, LCRS, and stereo presets for easy integration with Pro Tools; output metering for stereo and surround-sound operation; trimmable inputs and outputs; talkback latching and Auto Talkback modes; and more. And the built-in talkback mic and remote talkback and listenback inputs make it easy to set up two-way communication for your recording sessions.
Beautiful, streamlined design
Sporting a sleek, industrial design with a stylish, dark graphite color scheme, C24 fits right in with traditional and modern music and post-production studios. The control surface occupies a small footprint, offers an ergonomic design with a comfortable front bolster, and allows for better placement of your computer monitor and speakers thanks to its low-profile meterbridge. The control surface also features an intelligent switch design with bold graphics, making the layout easy to memorize and navigate. And the bright, easy-to-read, 55 x 2 LED scribble strips provide a 6-character, dual row display per channel for instant verification of channel names, plug-in parameters, sends, panning, and other editing functions.
