Avid D-Control Surround Panner Option – No Longer Available

Brings powerful and convenient panning functionality to the center section of the D-Control console
MFR# 9900-58031-00

Product Description

Gain powerful and convenient surround sound panning control right from the center section of your D-Control ES console. Whether you mix music or post-production sound, the Avid D-Control Surround Panner provides an ergonomic method for moving sound throughout the surround field. Plus, its custom assignment capabilities enable you to use the touchscreen or joysticks to manipulate plug-in parameters in creative new ways.

Simply mount the D-Control Surround Panner into the preconfigured bay within your D-Control ES console’s center section, and you’re ready to go. With its centralized location, you can now place sounds accurately and fine-tune them without leaving the monitoring sweet spot.

The D-Control Surround Panner offers intuitive controls for easy fingertip operation. Move sound around using the touchscreen, dual joysticks, or encoders. Control divergence — the amount that sound spreads to neighboring speakers — with a fingertip on the touchscreen or encoder. And use the onscreen soft buttons for linking, target selection, mode selection, and other often-needed controls.

Touch the onscreen speaker icons on the touchscreen to place sounds at single speaker sources, and then enter “snap” automation moves anywhere in the panning field. The high-resolution color LCD gives you rich visual feedback of your pan positions and other onscreen functions.

Use the two touch-sensitive joysticks for a more familiar means of physical panning. Move the joystick cursor near the current location cursor, or take over directly by pressing a Punch button to begin panning. Fine-tune the control of any targeted parameter using the two encoders with 15-segment LED rings. And access parameters and assign targets easily using the cluster of hardware and onscreen buttons.

If you work in post, sound design, or music mixing, the D-Control Surround Panner gives you some creative flexibility, letting you customize non-pan-related control assignments. Enter Custom Assign mode to place any parameter in the Focused channel on the X or Y axis. For example, you could assign the gain and frequency of an EQ to the panner’s X and Y axes to achieve dramatic filter sweeps with a simple fingertip or joystick move.

The D-Control Surround Panner integrates directly with Pro Tools HD software to deliver robust automated panning. You can also use AutoGlide to pan sounds automatically from one position to the next to move sound over time. Write pan automation by simply pressing new locations in the Surround Panner window in real time; the sound moves to the new location during playback based on your AutoGlide Time settings. And use Glide Automation in Pro Tools to create precise off-line automation.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
