An open letter to Euphonix customers from Avid
Avid has posted an open letter to Euphonix customers. There isn’t really any news in it, just thought I’d share it with you anyway.
We want to welcome you into the Avid® family. If you haven’t already heard, we’re excited to announce that Avid has acquired Euphonix. Martin Kloiber and the rest of the Euphonix team have done a fantastic job of delivering innovative and compelling products, and we’re thrilled to have them join our team. We’d also like to let you know how this acquisition will benefit you as a customer.
So, why did we choose Euphonix?
Euphonix has long been renowned as a leader in professional audio, with an award-winning product line that complements our own audio products. By bringing its full range of consoles and control surfaces to our audio portfolio, we can better meet the needs of a wider scope of audio and video professionals like you from independent engineers to those in high-end broadcast and audio post. Please be assured that we are committed to the continued sales and support of the entire Euphonix product line—from the Artist Series to System 5—and all current support contact numbers will remain the same. In addition, we’ll keep the Euphonix product line open to work with third-party products, including those from Apple, Steinberg, MOTU, and Apogee.
How will this acquisition benefit you?
For starters, we plan to maintain and further enhance the EuCon protocol, which brings powerful Euphonix hardware control to multiple applications and platforms. Our goal is to make EuCon an open industry standard that greatly expands the compatibility between Euphonix control surfaces and a wide range of Avid and third-party audio and video applications, including Pro Tools® and Media Composer®. This will open up many new creative opportunities for you.
We also recognize that audio and video workflows are converging, and plan to expand the capabilities of Euphonix’s controllers, such as the Artist Series, to work seamlessly with both audio and video tools. Not only will you be able to create content efficiently across multiple disciplines, your investment will become more cost-effective too.
With this acquisition, Avid continues to reinforce its ongoing commitment to the pro audio community while expanding its control surface options into the video community. If you’d like to discuss this or share your thoughts, please join us in an open forum. And to get more familiar with Avid, we welcome you to sign up for our newsletter. Thank you for your continued support.

No ono to bude jinak, Avid pry zjistil ze nejvic zisku ma z prodeje Hw mimo digidesign.Typu Maudio.Proste pri stavu dnesniho trhu kde se cim dal vic pro audio presouva do malych studii, tak je tezke konkurovat s HD systemem Protools treba proti Logicu, nebo Cubendu, Samplitude .O tom svedci i to, ze vyvojovy tym Protools byl presunut Avidem z draheho Sillicon Valley do Ukrajiny.Jedine,co muze udelat, aby zustal v prodejich SW konkurence schopnou firmou, je vyvinout levenjsi system neomezeny jako Protools LE nebo Maudio.
Ocekavam Artist pro PC a ocekavam Euphonix verzi C24.otevrenou pro pc.Eucon se ma stat naprosto otevrenou platformou na kterou budou muset reagovat i treba AMS Neve s Genesys nebo SSLs AWS, Matrix nebo Mackie -vsichni kdo pouzivaji HUI nebo MCU protokol.
Hergot tady to úplně prýští optimismem! Pamatujte jde o Digidesign, oukej nyní o Avid. To je vždycky jinak než všude jinde (a vždycky dráž...)!
