Frontier Design Group announces that Ableton Live Version 5.2.1 and above offers native support for Frontier’s TranzPort wireless remote controller.
With TranzPort, Live users can launch scenes, jump to markers, adjust loop points, change tempo and toggle between arrangement and session views. On a per track basis, TranzPort can also be used to change level and pan, mute, solo, record arm, and launch clips. TranzPort has 21 buttons, including five standard “transport” buttons for rewind, fast forward, stop, play and record. Its data wheel can be used to adjust the many parameters available in Live. There is visual feedback via eight LEDs and the backlit LCD display has 20x2 characters that can show track names, clip names, current position, parameter values and more.
Both Live and TranzPort run on Windows PCs (32-bit and 64-bit CPUs) and support Universal Binary drivers for Mac PowerPC and Intel-based computers. Operation is said to be identical in both environments. With the addition of Live, TranzPort now has the full support of more than 20 leading computer audio applications, including major DAW programs, as well as many virtual studios, remote recording applications and Apple Computer’s iTunes.
