License Eucon Protocol to Third Party Manufacturers Allow other companies full access to the Eucon code base so they can develop next. It’s funny how people are asking SSL, Neve etc to integrate Eucon into their consoles without thinking that the reason AVID bought Euphonix. Everywhere this protocol is brought up, it’s highly praised. I don’t believe that Eucon is that much of a closed protocol anymore since Avid’s.

Taking Control of Pro Tools with a DAW Controller
Cycling ’74 will be closed on Dec 25th, 26th, and Jan 1st. Manual authorization, support cases, and manual order processing will be delayed. Buy Max 8 Now. May 06 3: Because of large sets of parameter-data to transfer, i want to avoid midi. My question is if there is already an external, which handles communication with eucon -enabled software logic, sequoia, nuendo, etc and provides an path-system similar to m4l. As the eucon protocol is tcp-ip based, it should be possible to access the transferred information.
Also eucon itself is organized in some object-oriented way, which makes it suitable for using it via max.
Advice for doing this on my own is also welcome. May 13 1: May 20 4: Please keep me posted too.
We have a Euphonix MC Mix in the studio. I haven’t had time protool explore yet, but would like it to work with Max. Here’s someone who seems to have it working:. Jun 01 7: Avid has not released the EUCON protocol publicly since acquiring Euphonix, although they continue to hypocritically describe it as “open”.

As suggested in the first post, it would be theoretically possible to sniff the TCP or UDP packets if one was motivated enough. I’d guess it’s highly unlikely that EUCON lacks some form of encryption, however – making this a non-trivial effort. It’s a shame, it’s a very promising control protocol. rpotocol
For those wanting a cheap high resolution controller you can actually run the Behringer B-Control units in bit mode. The build quality is low but at that price you may be able to afford two MIDI latency will still be an issue. Jun 08 9: Hope that helps – any suggestions for improvement welcome! Aug 24 Thanks for your patch, but I actually wanted communication between Max and Eucon-enabled Software, not the Euphonix-Hardware-Controllers though they are sexy.
The MIDI-Bus is simply to slow and the acces methods for querying and setting parameters are too limited. Maybe we can flashmob avid or so in the future: Mar 19 9: Jan 03 8: I’m another who would like to know more about this.
Future Sonar Support for EuCon Protocol?
I’ve looked into this before and couldn’t find that much information about the Eucon protocol. I wrote a max patch that used midi messages to communicate with Pro Tools mainly just to automate mutes and such. Like the OP, I found the Midi protocol to be very limited. I eventually started to sniff ethernet packets between D-commands and the computer, but it was difficult to figure out a pattern.
Avid actually offers a developer program with access to the Eucon protocol, but I applied and have yet to hear back. I think thats the best bet at ptotocol max and Eucon to play nice. I know this is an old thread, but let me know if anyone is interested on getting a project going Jan 28 4: I would be very interested in this also. It does allot of great things…you wucon detach faders, have one of the faders follow the currently highlighted channel, etc.
Not to mention two-way fader feedback.
Euphonix EuCon Control Protocol Integrated Into MIO Console – ProSoundWeb
I have wanted but have not bought an Avid Artist Series Mix mainly because I really don’t trust Avid not to pull Eucon support for hardware they don’t make. They have done this many times in the past. I also understand from forums that their Eucon implementation is fairly CPU-intensive.
I see that Behringer has just come out with a couple of small moving fader controllers “X-Touch” that are affordable, but they look like they have just implemented HUI protocol, which I find pretty limited.
I would love for DP to be able to see one of these surfaces as a Eucon surface with the Eucon interactiveness. Feb 12 We’re considering buying an S3 control surface and would dearly like to be able to use it to control Max. May 10 Sign in to reply.
