Neyrinck in San Francisco introduces two new iPad applications, V-Control and V-Control Pro (prices TBA), which are multi-touch controllers for Pro Tools. V-Control and V-Control Pro provide access to the transport, editing and mixing functions of any Pro Tools system connected to a Wi-Fi network.
Neyrinck V-Control Pro
V-Control provides core features for portable, mouse-free recording and mixing, while V-Control Pro provides fully featured, professional control. Both apps use the iPad surface and the iOS operating system to provide features such as a big counter overlay, swipe gesturing to bank channels, and a popover plug-in editor. In tandem with an iPad, V-Control and V-Control Pro offer portability, a small footprint, and ease-of-use to Pro Tools users.
V-Control and V-Control Pro require an iPad running iOS 3.2 or later and are compatible with Pro Tools Version 7 and later on Mac OS X; Neyrinck states that it plans future Windows compatibility. The Pro Tools system must be connected to a local area network with a WiFi access point. The Pro Tools system must be running the free Ney-Fi utility available for download at www.neyrinck.com. V-Control and V-Control Pro are sold through the Apple App Store in the iPad.
