More DAW Support For AlphaTrack

Software manufacturers continue adding support for the AlphaTrack DAW controller from Frontier Design Group. AlphaTrack can now be used with with Mackie’s Tracktion 3 and with Cakewalk’s Guitar Tracks Pro 3.
AlphaTrack is a compact controller with a high-resolution fader for DAW mixing and editing. It has an innovative touch-sensitive jog/shuttle strip, LCD display, three touch-sensitive encoder knobs, standard transport buttons, user-definable buttons, and 100mm touch-sensitive fader. AlphaTrack also works with MOTU’s Digital Performer, Adobe’s Audition 2, Apple’s Final Cut Pro and Soundtrack Pro, Steinberg’s Nuendo and Cubase (SX/SL, Cubase 4, Studio 4), Cakewalk’s SONAR, Propellerhead’s Reason, and Digidesign’s ProTools.
In response to customer requests, Frontier Design Group has developed an alternate knob set for AlphaTrack. The set includes a fader cap and three knobs for the encoders. The new fader cap has a deeper curve than the original fader cap. The new knobs are more cylindrical than the original knobs, with protruding ridges which are easy to grasp. The new coating is slightly more textured while maintaining the touch-sensitivity of the knobs and fader. The alternate knob set is available from Frontier Design Group’s online store.
Frontier Design Group has also announced that Ardour 2 now supports its TranzPort wireless remote controller in Linux systems.
