This complete hardware workstation console has the user-friendly features and ergonomics that Mackie is renowned for… including instantly touch-updatable 100mm motorized faders, transport controls, DAE™ Plug-Ins control, keyboard shortcuts, window buttons - even built-in mic preamps! What used to take multiple mouse moves and clicks can now be done at the push of a single button. Instead of individually adjusting "faders" on screen, Pro Tools 4.1 users can now enjoy hands-on tracking and mixing with touch-updatable motorized faders.
With full automation control and recall capabilities, HUI™ is anything but a conventional fader pack. For serious professionals who work day in and day out with Pro Tools, HUI can significantly boost productivity through direct hands-on control.
The Human User Interface is organized into seven parts:
In the upper-left corner is an assign section where internal mix bus and physical hardware I/O assignments are made.
The main part of HUI is composed of eight assignable channel strips with big-console-grade, 100mm motorized faders and Mackie's innovative new V-Pot™ rotary controls.
In the upper-right corner of the interface is a vacuum fluorescent alphanumeric display for controlling the parameters of DAE-compatible Plug-Ins.
Below the DSP section is a switch matrix for assigning channel status and/or global session attributes.
The lower right-hand section, with keypad and jog wheel, dedicated keys, and even extra cursor controls, is dedicated to transport/locate functions.
The lower left contains a keyboard shortcut section bank and selector buttons to switch between various Pro Tools screens .
And shoehorned in the middle of all this is a complete analog control room section with 3 sets of speaker/phones controls and built-in talkback mic. (Trim controls for the two integrated mic preamplifiers and talkback mic are on the back.)
