Control|24 and ProControl with Pro Tools 11?
 
I'm a sound assistant for a studio, and they put me in charge of finding a control console that will be put in the new dub stage. They want to have the new Pro Tools 11 system integrated on the stage, but they were unsure of how the avid D-command and D-control boards work with the new pro tools. Here is what I need to know if anyone has any idea:

1.Will an AVID C24 work with PT 11? What PT would I need (HD, HD Native, HDX)?

2.Will a Digidesign Control 24 (The older models) work with PT 11? What PT would I need (HD, HD Native, HDX)?

3.What setup would you recommend for a dub stage that is looking to buy whatever they can secondhand?

Please be as detailed as you want, and I thank anyone in advance who can give me some answers.

C24 will work with 11 and all versions you mentioned. Control24 will not be supported(which doesn't mean it WON'T work, but nobody knows yet). You might be better off with a couple of Artist Mix fader packs and an Artist Control(which is cheaper than a used C24). D-Command and D-control should both be fine with 11.

Control|24 with Pro Tools HD 11?
 
I have an original Control 24 and I know its not officially supported but fingers crossed it will still work. $600 is a lot to spend to find out afterwards...

The Control|24 is listed under the category "Not Officially Supported Audio Interfaces and Peripherals (Untested)". So we don't know that it will or will not work for certain, but it is not listed as "Definitely will not work". Wish I could be more exact, but as it says, untested.

Re: Control|24 with Pro Tools 11?
 
So the key questions are:
1) Why wouldn't Avid at least TRY to see if the Control 24 works so you can at least let us know?
2) Which Driver for the Control 24 will I want to use? The latest one from my PT 10 Native+CPTK 2 upgrade?

Thanks for the help Bruce

Hi,

As the Control 24 is EOL Avid won't make any official statement as to whether it works or not or whether its been working during beta. were on our own now and until someone boots PT11 with a control 24 and posts on the forum we won't know!! If the driver is not bundles with PT11 then i guess we try the latest with that will come with PT 10.3.5 Stay tuned

Lets hope it works unless you want to see a grown man cry:o :D

If it doesn't work...I'm stuck with PT 10 + CPTK 2 then...NO WAY I am spending the £4k to buy a C24 when my Control 24 works perfectly...still wish they would have at least asked someone beta testing PT11 with a Control 24 to test it...how hard would that be...heck..I'd offer to test it before I cough up $599!!!

And 003R is EOL as well but they tested that !

It seems it would be less responsible to claim support/compatibility solely based on 1 beta tester's experience. I don't have definitive word on this yet, but following the example of the PT10 Trial I would anticipate availability of a PT11 Trial which would allow you to try it on your own system before purchasing.

True they are both EOL, but keep in mind the timing of these products...

A Trial of PT 11 would be a blessing...how would that work logistically? Purchase for $599, download and test and if it doesn't work I submit for a refund?

Just like they've done in the past. Request the demo. Get a temporary ilok license. Download the software and see what happens. If it works and you like it, you buy a permanent license to replace the temporary one. Swap licenses and you're good to go.
