Frontier Design Group's TranzPort represents a revolutionary way to interact with a Windows or Mac digital audio workstation (DAW). Instead of being stuck in front of the computer to compose, record and produce music/audio, the controller provides the freedom to control DAW functions from anywhere in the studio.
TranzPort is easy to set up and use. Right out of the box, it's compatible with many popular DAW software. One can arm tracks, use transport controls, set markers, control pans, punch in/out, start loops, and more from the unit's simple and intuitive interface. Being a bi-directional controller, it will also provides feedback on signal levels, timecode position, track names, and more.
Unlike infrared remotes, line-of-sight is not needed between the TranzPort and the computer. The controller/receiver uses high frequency radio waves (RF) to send and receive control data, and uses advanced coding and frequency-hopping techniques to operate without causing interference, even in the presence of other wireless devices.
- Wireless DAW control allows one to operate a computer-based digital audio workstation from anywhere in the studio. Applications include being able to change mix levels from an iso-booth, or easily record instruments that are physically incompatible with the main workspace
- Over thirty feet operational distance (typical)
- Uses high-frequency RF technology. No wires or line-of-sight required, and no added interference in the presence of other wireless systems
- Dedicated buttons for often-used functions, including transport controls, marker/locate buttons, track control (level, pan, solo, mute, record arm) and more
- Supports Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer, Sonar and other DAW software applications. Compatible with Mac and Windows
- Two-way interface that provides information on timecode position, track name/number, track volume, pan settings and more via backlit LCD display and LED indicators
- Small footprint and lightweight design
- Footswitch input
- Operates on four AA batteries
