iv MC Transport User Guide
Chapter 1: Introduction: Artist Series Media
Controllers
The MC Control, MC Mix, and MC Transport comprise the Artist Series family of media controllers. They use a 100 Mbs Ethernet
EUCON™ connection to control audio and video applications running on a workstation computer. EUCON is a high-speed communication protocol and enables control of virtually every application feature.
Each Artist Series media controller can run as a standalone device. Up to four MC Mixes can be used with an optional MC Control
and/or MC Transport to create a larger control surface. Artist Series media controllers borrow many features from the MC Pro and
System 5-MC.
Artist Series Media Controllers
The MC Transport supports two types of applications:
• EUCON-aware applications (such as Pro Tools™ 9 and higher, Cubase, Nuendo, and Final Cut Pro) are written to directly
support the EUCON protocol. They provide the highest level of integration, high-resolution controls, and high-speed connectivity.
• Non-EUCON-aware applications that support Mackie Control or HUI (such as Live, Reason, and Pro Tools 8.x and lower) can
control many functions but are less integrated than EUCON-aware applications.
The MC Transport can provide some functionality over non-EUCON-aware applications that do not support HUI or Mackie Control by sending out keystroke commands over EUCON.
EuControl Software
The EuControl software application is responsible for finding, linking, and communicating with all Artist Series media controllers
on the network. EuControl must be installed on the computer that runs the applications you want to control before using Artist
Series controllers.
What’s Included
• MC Transport, with riser brackets
• EuControl software installer disc
• 1 Ethernet Crossover cable
• Power supply
• MC Transport Quick Setup

Chapter 2: Installation and Setup
Unpacking and Elevating the MC Transport
Unpack MC Transport, its power supply, Installer disc, Ethernet crossover cable, and riser brackets.
MC Transport can be elevated or angled using small foldout legs on the bottom of the unit, or elevated and angled by attaching
the larger riser brackets. Since both methods require turning MC Transport upside down, do this before attaching any cables.
Turn the unit over and place it on a soft surface. Pull out all four of the small foldout legs to moderately elevate the unit; pull out
only the back two to angle the unit towards you. Pull out the metal clips from the same area as the legs and move them until they
snap into the legs.
The two larger, detached riser brackets elevate and angle the unit more than the foldout legs. Use moderate force to snap them
into the bottom panel.

Jog Wheel and Shuttle Ring
The Jog Wheel and Shuttle Ring are similar controls with an important difference:
• Turning the Jog Wheel changes the parameter it controls by an amount proportional to how far the wheel is turned. When
the Jog Wheel stops moving, the parameter stops changing.
• Turning the Shuttle Ring changes the parameter it controls at a rate determined by its position. The further the Shuttle Ring
rotates, the faster the parameter changes. When held in position, the parameter continues to change at a fixed rate. When
the Shuttle Ring is released, it automatically returns to its center position and the parameter stops changing.
Both the Jog Wheel and Shuttle Ring can be rotated in either direction.

Jog Wheel (1) and Shuttle Ring (2)
Jog Wheel
The Jog Wheel is typically used to do any or all of the following:
• Positioning the cursor in the timeline
• Zooming horizontally or vertically
• Editing a clip or region
14 MC Transport User Guide
In some applications, the Jog Wheel can act as an Assignable Knob. This lets you use the Jog Wheel to adjust the values of any
control the cursor hovers over in Cubase or Nuendo, such as faders, pan knobs and plug-in controls. Other applications require
a mouse-click on the control to allow adjustment (such as Logic Pro).
The Jog Wheel can also be used to adjust control room volume for certain applications (such as Studio Monitor Express, Cubase,
and Nuendo).
The Jog Wheel can be programmed to generate a Custom Command to send keystrokes into the application. See “Custom Jog
Command” on page 23.
All Wheel functions (including positioning, zooming, trimming, Assignable Knob, Control Room Volume, and Custom) are initiated by pressing an assignable key.
For more information on how to set up these programmable functions in EuControl and which applications allow them, see Chapter 4, “Soft
Keys.”
Shuttle Ring
The Shuttle Ring lets you shuttle through the session or project timeline. The farther it is turned, the faster it shuttles. The Shuttle
Ring can also have different functions assigned. See see Chapter 4, “Soft Keys” for more information.
Application/Workstation Key
The Application/Workstation key lets you quickly toggle MC Transport focus between the two most recently used applications, or
cycle through all open applications. This key also lets you use the MC Transport to control applications running on a second
computer (referred to in this guide as a workstation).
Application/Workstation key
To toggle between the two most recently used open applications:

Press the Application/Workstation key.
To cycle through all open applications:

Hold down the Application/Workstation key and turn the Jog wheel in either direction.
To control an application on a different computer:
1 Use EuControl software to create a list of “workstations” to switch between.
See “Workstations” on page 32 for more information.
2 Press and hold the SHIFT key and press the Application/Workstation key to attach MC Transport to another workstation. While
attached to a second workstation, your keyboard and mouse can be configured to control the additional workstation and not
your primary workstation.
See “Redirect Keyboard and Mouse Control to Attached External Workstation” on page 33 for more information.
Chapter 3: MC Transport Operation 15
SHIFT Key
The SHIFT key lets you access a secondary function for each key, if one has been assigned. Press and hold the SHIFT key and press
another key to access the secondary function.
The SHIFT key can be used in conjunction with the SHOW key to display the alternate function. Since this may require holding
down three keys, it is useful to lock the SHOW key (see “Locking the SHOW Key” on page 12) or the SHIFT key (see “Locking the
Shift Key” on page 16).
Locking the Shift Key
The SHIFT key can be locked to access multiple alternate key functions without holding the key down.

Chapter 4: Soft Keys
In EuControl software, the Soft Keys tab controls assignments for the MC Transport Soft Keys.
EuControl Settings, Soft Keys tab
To edit an application’s assignments in EuControl, that application must be top-most immediately before switching to EuControl.
The application listed in the upper left of the window is called in focus because it:
• Is controlled by MC Transport
– and –
• Receives computer keystrokes and mouse events.
MC Transport can control different applications, each with its own Soft Key assignments. Since MC Transport responds dynamically as the focussed application changes, you may see the Soft Keys assignments change in EuControl. Simply switch the focus
back to the desired application and then switch back to EuControl to restore them. Although an application’s unsaved Soft Key
edits are preserved between focus changes until you quit the application, you should save your work often.
Soft Key assignments are stored in an Application Set for each application. Be sure to check that the proper application is focussed
before using Save, Restore, or Revert.
Save
Clicking Save permanently stores the Application Set. However, changes to the Soft Key assignments are retained even without
clicking Save until you quit EuControl, at which point you will be prompted to save.
Revert
Click Revert to revert to the Application Set last saved. This discards any changes made since the last Save command or EuControl
was last started.

Chapter 5: EuControl
EuControl is launched automatically upon starting your computer and runs in the background. EuControl is responsible for
finding, linking, and communicating with all Artist Series media controllers on the network.
Accessing EuControl Settings
To open the EuControl Settings window:

Do one of the following:
• On Mac, click the green icon on the taskbar and select EuControl Settings.
• On Windows, click the green icon in the Task or System tray (Windows) and select EuControl Settings. Unused icons will be
shown in the Hidden icons view.
Selecting EuControl Settings on Mac (left) and Windows (right)
Only one instance of EuControl can run on a workstation. However, multiple workstations on a single network can each run EuControl. Each instance of EuControl can connect a single MC Transport, a single MC Control, and up to four MC Mixes on the
network. These multiple devices act together as a single control surface. Once connected, these Artist Series media controllers are
not available to other instances of EuControl until relinquished.
The tabs are discussed in the order (left to right) as they appear at the top of the EuControl Settings dialog.
Some EuControl features pertain only to the MC Mix and MC Control, not MC Transport. These are noted at the beginning of each
section.
Chapter 5: EuControl 29
Surfaces
The Surfaces tab shows all Artist media controllers on your network and those connected to your instance of EuControl.
Surfaces tab
The feature Control Unit banks independently is available for MC Control only.
All Surfaces
All Surfaces shows all Artist Series controllers on the network. A device shown in light gray is already connected either to your
own or another instance of EuControl running on a different workstation. In both cases, it is not selectable.
My Surfaces
My Surfaces shows the Artist Series controllers connected to your instance of EuControl. There can be one MC Control, one
MC Transport, and up to four MC Mixes in the My Surfaces list, linked into a single large surface.
The top-to-bottom order corresponds to the left-to-right order of the surfaces, respectively. The leftmost surface has fader strip 1.
Use the up and down buttons to reorder the list.
Each Artist media controller can be renamed by double-clicking the existing name and typing a new name.
Add
Click Add to add the selected All Surfaces entry to My Surfaces. This connects this Artist media controller to your instance of
EuControl. You can also click and drag an Artist media controller from All Surfaces to My Surfaces.
Add is disabled if all Artist media controllers in All Surfaces are connected to any instance of EuControl.
Remove
Click Remove to remove the selected surface from My Surfaces and make it available to other instances of EuControl.
Remove is disabled if no surface is selected.
30 MC Transport User Guide
Automatically Add
The Automatically Add menu has two settings that control what happens to stored Surfaces between shutdown and startup.
All Surfaces (Default) Best used when you are the only person running EuControl in your home or studio. It provides an easy
plug-and-play experience by automatically adding your All Surfaces list to your My Surfaces list so you never have to manually
edit the My Surfaces list.
My Surfaces Only Useful in facilities where other EuControl users are on your network. When EuControl starts, only the surfaces
from your My Surfaces list are added. Because a surface can only be claimed by one user at a time, this avoids claiming another
user’s controller.
Update Firmware
Each time a new version of EuControl is installed, each MC Transport, MC Control, and MC Mix in your system may need its
firmware updated. The firmware is embedded in EuControl so an Internet connection is not required.
To update firmware:
1 Select each Artist Series controller in the My Surfaces list (Shift-click to select multiple devices).
2 Press Update Firmware to update their firmware. If a dialog displays a message that the firmware is up to date, no further action
is necessary.
3 Follow the instructions in the EuControl dialog box.

36 MC Transport User Guide
Chapter 6: Setting IP Addresses
Most MC Transport users will never have to set a static Internet Protocol (IP) address but in the rare cases that require it, follow
the instructions in this section.
Normally MC Transport uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to obtain its IP address, typically from a router.
MC Transport reverts to link-local addressing to generate an IP address if a DHCP server is not found on the network, such as
when MC Transport is connected directly to a computer with an Ethernet cable. Both of these methods of obtaining IP addresses
can be overridden by supplying a static IP address, which MC Transport will then use in all cases when powered on.
Attempt this only if you have prior experience configuring a network.
To set a static IP address:
1 While holding down the leftmost two Soft Keys simultaneously, press and release the POWER switch. Continue to hold the Soft
Keys down until the display lights.
2 Turn the Jog Wheel clockwise to change the underlined value from yes (default) to no.
Use DHCP yes (left); Use DHCP no (right)
The + and – keys on the Numeric Keypad can be used instead of the Jog Wheel to decrease or increase the value, respectively.
3 Press the ENTER key to move the cursor to the next screen, in this case the first field of the IP Address screen.
4 Press the ENTER key to cycle the cursor back to a previous field or screen to change a parameter to a different value.
5 Use the Jog Wheel to set the first field of the IP Address. Alternately, press the + or – keys on the Numeric Keypad to increment
or decrement the value, respectively. You can also enter the number directly using the Numeric Keypad.
6 Press the ENTER key to move the cursor to the second field.
7 Rotate the Jog Wheel to set the second field of the IP address.
IP Address displays
8 Set the remaining IP Address fields.
Chapter 6: Setting IP Addresses 37
9 After setting the last IP Address field, press the ENTER key to move the cursor to the first field of the Subnet Mask screen.

10 Set the Subnet Mask using the same techniques described in the previous steps.
11 Press the two left-most Soft Keys simultaneously to save this static IP address. Power MC Transport off and on to use the new
IP address.
To cancel any changes made to the IP address at any time, power off MC Transport before pressing the two left-most Soft Keys
simultaneously.
