Frontier Design AlphaTrack - Compact DAW Controller with Single Motorized Fader, Transport Controls and 3 Rotary Encoders - Mac OS X and Windows XP

B&H # FRATC Mfr # 189000001603
No Longer Available

The AlphaTrack from Frontier Design is a single fader, compact controller that adds tactile control to digital audio workstations. The unit features a high-resolution, touch sensitive, motorized fader, a jog/shuttle strip, three rotary encoders and a set of twenty-two buttons and twenty-one LEDs.

The unit connects to a computer via a single USB cable, through which the controller also receives its power. This makes it especially attractive for laptop operation. The back panel includes a footswitch jack for easy punch-in recording.

The AlphaTrack's touch-sensitive jog and shuttle strip allows the user to slide a finger across its surface and the project's timeline scrolls in response. Placing a second finger onto the strip controls the timeline's shuttle speed. The user can also tap on the left or right ends of the strip to navigate through a project's markers.

The controller works with both Mac OS X and Windows XP operating systems and can integrate with all the major music applications on the market.
