MC Control Version 2 features the same ergonomic layout and slim line design as the MC Control, but offers enhanced graphics thanks to a new LED-backlit touchscreen and better tactile control of parameters via eight new custom rotary encoders.

At the heart of MC Control V. 2 is a new high-resolution 800x480-pixel LED-backlit touchscreen interface that offers a wide viewing angle, bright graphics and excellent color consistency. The touchscreen not only displays all top-level project information like track names, metering (from mono to 5.1 surround data), automation mode, fader/pan values, etc., but also allows the user to solo/mute/record-arm tracks, trigger soft keys, perform surround panning and more directly from the surface. MC Control V. 2 ships with comprehensive soft-key sets for most media applications, and custom soft keys can be created for almost any function from basic keystroke shortcuts to complex macro commands for each application.

Surrounding the touchscreen, MC Control V. 2 features eight new touch-sensitive rotary encoders that offer direct control over everything from panning and gain to editing plug-in and EQ parameters, and can be pressed to instantiate and navigate through parameters. MC Control V. 2's layout includes dedicated transport controls, as well as a data-entry wheel that can be assigned on the fly to control everything from basic jog/shuttle navigation and zooming to a host of advanced editing functions. Four touchsensitive motorized faders round out the controls, and touching a fader automatically selects and controls the corresponding track.

MC Control V. 2 features EuCon, a high-speed control protocol developed by Euphonix that allows for simultaneous control of multiple applications and workstations over an Ethernet cable at 250 times the speed and eight times the resolution of MIDI. EuCon automatically detects whatever application is in the foreground and instantly sets all controls and high-resolution touchscreen display to match.

MC Control V. 2 is expected to be available at authorized Euphonix retailers in late April 2010 at an estimated street price of $1,499.99.
