APPLE
Final Cut Studio

Status:
There is currently no Lexan overlay for using the Mackie Control Universal with Finalcut Pro 5 or Soundtrack Pro. Apple has designed the hardware/software integration to allow the default Logic Audio silk-screens to work well without the need for an overlay. However, an overlay might be produced in the future, so watch this space for further updates.

Adobe Audition

Status:
In May of 2003, Adobe Systems Incorporated acquired the technology assets of Syntrillium Software and eventually released a re-branded version of Cool Edit Pro 2.1 as the new Adobe Audition software. Adobe Audition is the same great Cool Edit Pro that you know and love, along with the addition of enhanced integration with Adobe Premiere® Pro® and Adobe After Effects® 6.0 software. This transition has not affected the integration and support of the Mackie Control Universal and the existing Syntrillium CoolEdit Pro Lexan overlay (which is still included in each Mackie Control Universal package) still supports all the same functions and nomenclature as before.
We wish to welcome Adobe Systems Incorporated to our family of software partners for the Mackie Control Universal!
