Thanks for the new update Eddie. The Reverse Dyn layout feature is massive for me.

I'm noticing a couple of odd things with 18.3 that I wondered if anyone else can reproduce. On my Artist Mix, when in Inserts mode, the 'On' buttons don't illuminate to show plug-in activation anymore - they function as expected, bypassing plugs, but there is no LED feedback.

Also, when switching Layouts to an Auto-Assigned layout from a saved layout, the Artist Mix jumps to an arbitrary group of tracks, ignoring the original position or current banking position. Is that just happening here? Being able to jump from attentioned tracks, to saved VCA's, to auto-assigned is a big part of my workflow.

I'm running Pro Tools 2018.1 on a late 2013 Mac Pro with 10.12.6.

Working with Artist Mix here.
Once I toggle to Finder and back to PT, the PT Control looses the display it was having prior to that (i.e. automation page 7 goes back to page 1).
I also assign specific locked tracks on the Artist Mix and all of a sudden it forgets the current layout and I have to redefine the layout.
Is it a bug? Is it a feature?

Hi, thanks for the new release.

Are the manuals missing or am I looking in the wrong place?

I'm used to copy the "Documents" folder from the EuCon DMG (installer) to my ~User/Documents folder. Can't find the manuals for 2018.3.

Can I ask if the new installers fixed your issues ?

Hi Eddie,

Thanks for sorting the new installers so quickly - your hard work is hugely appreciated.

I've only briefly tested the update as I'm in a writing session this week, but I can confirm that LED feedback for Insert Bypass is working as expected again. I haven't had a chance to properly test the switching Layouts functionality, but will let you know when I'm mixing again from Wednesday.

One thing I did notice is that the VCA oddness that someone mentioned in another thread (when opening a session, all VCA's are greyed out, and the Artist Mix doesn't recognise them) is still there - although I suspect that's a Pro Tools issue, not Eucon, as it was occurring on Eucon 3.7 but only began from PT 2018.1

As I mentioned in that thread - you can jump-start them by simply re-ordering the VCA's, which is a quick fix though.

Cheers,
Tim

I've installed the unified installer for my Artist Transport, but now my old Eucon software is gone and my interface is not recognized. Is there an application I should be seeing somewhere, because I'm not.

What versions of MacOS is this v18.3 compatible with? On the "My Artist Series" download page, you used to state it like this:

EuControl 3.6.1 for Mac OS X
Mac OS 10.10.4+ and later

I looked all over the Artist Series site and in the "Whats New in EuControl 18.3.pdf" guide...and found no info on MacOS systems compatibility.

Thanks
