In this free tutorial, brought to you with the support of Avid, Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers demonstrates how to set up custom macros on the buttons on the Avid Dock.
Complex Actions Created By Custom Macros
Eucon is very configurable and any of the buttons and touchstrips on the Avid Dock can be customised to execute macros involving any combination of keystrokes and menu items.
Example Dialogue Editing Use Case
As part of his video creation process Julian manually pulls the level of breaths down, usually by about 9dB so they are still audible but not distracting. He has tried plug-in based processes but still finds the most reliable results are found by doing it manually, which can be quite a time consuming option. To illustrate how useful these macros can be Julian builds a macro which combines menu items and multiple keystrokes.
Watch out for the upcoming videos which will examine more aspects of the Avid Dock.
