Ethernet-based control surface
You can control every major digital audio workstation with the Control 2802 console.

With Ethernet-based control, your favorite music software is always at your fingertips.
Focusrite loads the Control 2802 with motorized 100mm analog and DAW control faders and can both be fully automated. Easily adjust DAW channel auxes, inserts and groups within Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase and Nuendo via a HUI interface. Four multi-function encoders give you precise control while OLED screens provide detailed information on mix elements. Combined with dedicated transport controls, that means more time getting your sound just right, and less time staring at a screen.
If that wasn't enough
In the box you will find the Focusrite Midnight plug-in suite. Modeled on original Focusrite hardware designs, these plug-ins allow you to add compression and EQ, helping you take your mix to the next level.
