The Hotkey Matrix- Version 2 is out!

DNA Music Labs is proud to announce the release of version 2 of the Hotkey Matrix. It features compatibility with Pro Tools 11, updated graphics and an improved layout which incorporates extensive feedback from users of version 1.

The Hotkey Matrix is a powerful control surface that brings unparalleled efficiency to your Pro Tools workflow. It was built from the beginning as a dedicated device, optimized for working with Pro Tools.

Its one touch design principle and the fact that each key is permanently dedicated to a function makes working in Pro Tools feel more like working with a “real” device. It’s not just another app or virtual controller that adds complexity to your workflow. 

Equally useful to beginners or pros, the Hotkey Matrix stands apart from other control surfaces with its utility and ease of operation. Musicians who use Pro Tools for basic recording will appreciate how it streamlines the Pro Tools interface, producers and electronic music composers can dig deeper into using Pro Tools as creative instrument, and seasoned audio engineers can do the tasks they’ve always done, just faster and easier!

Its compact size and competitive price make it ideal for wide variety of production environments. It integrates well with other fader-based control surfaces, and won’t interfere with any of your current shortcuts or workflows. With the Hotkey Matrix, you can create a Pro Tools workstation that is second to none in terms of ergonomics, speed, and power!
