Default What smaller(er) control surface for PT19?

The Avid Artist Control and S3 are super awesome but I just can't spend that much.

Thought about an old Digidesign Control 24 that's for sale locally but not sure how crippled it is having to work via HUI and the V-Control software. Can't get a good user review on that setup. It's on the large side as well.

Seriously considering an old Digi 003. If I understand it it's still 100% functional and the layout was always very good. If only it was expandable to 16 faders.

I could live with a Behringer X Touch and maybe a sidecar.

What do you guys recommend?

I think you can expand it with a Command|8

D commands are dirt cheap. Small form factor.

Never used one. Better than an 003?

Oh wait.. Was thinking of the Command 8.

Is the D Command still fully integrated or is it on the HUI/V Control language now?

Depending on what you want to do with the control surface, there are some apps for iPad and Android that are controllers. I used one for awhile with my Kindle Fire called TouchDAW that was pretty good. I only needed it for the big counter display, didn't use it for fader control, but it did have that. The app is no longer being developed I don't think but maybe it's still available. It was a whopping $5 to purchase.

Just finish setting my iPad up and EuControl the new version looking really nice or just seems to run and sync better. Haven’t used it for a while well since updating to 2019.5 some weeks back, but need to use it today. But this new version definitely seems more solid same with 2019.5. Would love to have my TF5 talk to EuControl and use that as a control surface..... if ya listening Yamaha

If $1K is top of your budget, take a look at Faderport16(Presonus). I ran the original faderport on 3 systems and it actually covered a lot of ground(even on a rig that ran a C24 because I really prefer transport on the left). Currently using a Behringer X-Touch ONE but will probably sell it and get the new Faderport. Biggest reason here is because the Behringer doesn't seem to have any way to select automation modes on the selected channel(even the old faderport can do this).

I also had the 003 for a few years, but really only needed the transport buttons. Later on I moved to an Artist MIX and Transport, but swapped the Transport for the old faderport(Transport had too many buttons that I never used). After having the Artist MIX for 3 years, I found I just didn't need it(but your work flow may be different)

I also like the S3(but not the price) and am hoping for something new from Avid, Maybe an S1 and expanders to replace the old Artist series
