Remotely control Pro Tools and external audio/video devices through Sony 9-pin

Easily integrate and control external audio and video devices with Pro Tools. Using industry-standard serial 9-pin machine control protocols, MachineControl software enables you to fast forward, rewind, jog, and shuttle media playback, plus perform other common tasks, directly from your Pro Tools interface. You can also have your Pro Tools system emulate a remote deck by slaving it to compatible Sony 9-pin devices. Get track arming for integrated laybacks to external transports. And experience reliable sync and control, as MachineControl supports serial time code as a positional reference, and features faster lockup times to Sony 9-pin.
