A control surface is a hardware device with controls like faders, knobs, and buttons to give you tactile control when working with audio.
Premiere Pro provides a hardware control interface that lets you connect your control surface device with the application.
Premiere Pro supports two kinds of control surfaces:
- Mackie Control protocol (Mackie)
- Euphonix control surfaces (EUCON)
Check the hardware documentation that comes with the device to set it up correctly. Once you've done that, go to Premiere Pro's Preferences dialog to set up the configuration.
After configuring your device with Premiere Pro, you can control the Audio Track Mixer and Audio Clip Mixer using the buttons, knobs, and faders on the device.
