AlphaTrack Ships With Expanded Support


Frontier Design Group have told us that they are now shipping the new AlphaTrack controller, and that it now supports two more applications — Apple’s Final Cut Pro and Soundtrack Pro — in addition to the DAWs already supported (ProTools, SONAR, Reason, Cubase SX/SL, Digital Performer, and Nuendo).
Here’s the details in Frontier Design’s own words:
'AlphaTrack combines a set of intuitive tactile controls in an attractive package that fits easily on your desktop for DAW mixing and editing. Now you can ride a high-resolution fader, turn real knobs, and scroll/shuttle with the touch of your fingers. Its compact design and USB connection make AlphaTrack an excellent portable companion for laptops too.
AlphaTrack has a 100mm, touch-sensitive, motorized fader which provides true 10-bit resolution for smooth, precise level control. AlphaTrack includes three touch-sensitive encoders, a feature previously found only on high-end gear costing thousands of dollars. Use the encoders to adjust track and plug-in parameters while the 32-character backlit display shows detailed feedback in response to your touch. The encoders provide quick control of pans, sends, EQ, plug-ins, and automation. AlphaTrack also has standard transport controls, a set of user-definable buttons and a footswitch jack for easy punch-in recording.
One of AlphaTrack’s unique innovations is its touch-sensitive jog and shuttle strip. Slide one finger across its surface to scroll through your project’s timeline. Place two fingers on the strip to control the timeline’s shuttle speed. Zoom through your project with two fingers, then just lift one finger and slide to quickly set the precise position you want. To navigate through your project’s markers, simply tap your finger on the end of the strip.
AlphaTrack works on Windows XP and Mac OS X (including Intel Macs), and connects to the computer using just a single USB cable.'
