Avid Artist Control vs Euphonix MC Control?
 
I am interested in purchasing an Avid Artist Control and I have seen some retailers offering the older MC Control at a significantly discounted price.

Aside from the cosmetic differences, are there any functional differences or reasons to avoid the earlier units? I am primarily concerned with future compatibility and with the fact that I am on Windows.

I suspect that a firmware upgrade would make the older unit comparable to the newer ones, but I want to make sure.

Thanks.

V1 in combination with the 2.6.x version of Eucontrol seems to have MIDI problems.

Protools10 on EUCON is running fine, but neither Mackie Control nor HUI are working.
I had this issue, which got solved by downgrading to 2.5.7 (firmware as well). But this is on OsX.

Thanks, folks. The units I have seen are MC Control V2. I will probably be being purchasing one of these.
