CM Labs Merlin?

When surfing YouTube, this got my attention:



Looks pretty nice! I wonder if it will be released and if so when and at what price.

This thing looks great. It looks like a much updated version of the Motor Mix. Finally an alternative to the Euphonix MC Control.

Huh, still non- conductive non-touch sensitive faders? My biggest gripe with the Motormix, otherwise it was a nice package.

EDIT: Ah, looking at the CM labs site see that the Motor Mate has touch sensitive faders. In fact it looks pretty good, and I bet Merlin will be too.

Yeah they changed the faders on v2. I had a version 1 MotorMix. It wasn't bad, but the faders were much too noisy to my liking, I have no idea if this was also fixed for v2. Probably, can't imagine this went unnoticed.

I think its very interesting as it gives a lot of options and also stuff like metering (like the c24 or mackie hui has) which I like.

Now I wonder at what price this unit will come and what daw's will be supported 100% when the unit comes out.
Seems that the original motormix and motormate have problems with some newer daw's (like digital performer).

it does look very good but i have a motor mix and i'm not truly satisfied. Like said before, fader are not touch sensitive so for automation it's a real problem. Beside that it's a pretty cool unit.

IΒ΄ve been mailing with Carl Malone from Cmlabs, the last few days. He has been very informative about dimensions, and general infothumbsup
He is hoping Merlin will be available q2 2009.
He is still working on the price.

Best wishes,

Sure.

Dimensions: 29x15x7
Ethernet/Eucon or USB2 as communication.
CMlabs are still working on manufacturing costs, so no final price on the Merlin yet .

Eucon? That's an Euphonix protocol, is that open to other controller manufacturers? I doubt it.

Its a technology they license. So I guess its available for controller manufacturers besides DAW makers.

So does the unit operate using the Eucon protocol or using Mackie HUI?

Yeah, I'm thinking this too. I don't think there's anything else out there at this price range with these features. For me, the most important distinctions are : price, 24 faders, size, built in monitor section and .... DEDICATED INPUT METERS!!
Anyone know what the white boxes are under the input meters? Are those going to be small displays? OLED? LCD? A place to draw cartoons?

That's what I'm hoping. Wonder what it'll cost. I also wonder if it will have the ability to control their "sixty four" patchbay.

By the way, can you still get the Sixty Four? Or was it discontinued?

Been very intresting by this controler but just look at the dimension:
W: 29", look at my converter as i'm french and that's only 73cm, is ****ing small for 24 faders, i was hoping for at least 110/120cm who is for me the right size for those numbers of faders.

I thought it was gone a long time ago, but my memory isn't always the best.
