TranzPort and Logic Pro/Express
Logic Pro and Logic Express users have a powerful new tool in their bag, a wireless remote control that integrates seamlessly with Logic v7.1+ and provides the user with total flexibility. TranzPort goes way beyond the ordinary DAW controller, literally!
Stop, play and record, with undo and redo ability is childs’ play. Mute, solo, or arm tracks without breaking a sweat. Add and navigate markers effortlessly with TranzPort. With full native support in Logic provided by Apple, TranzPort can leap from one track to the next, adjusting level and pan positions, setting Drop and Cycle points, scrubbing audio with stereo metering and more, all while keeping you in control full control with its backlit 2×20 LCD display and 8 status LEDs. Logic users also have the unique ability to customize the entire TranzPort interface from within Logic’s ‘Controller Assignments’ panel. This gives the TranzPort total flexibility, allowing each user to define the optimum feature set for their environment.
With Logic 7.1 and beyond installing TranzPort is a breeze. Follow the instructions for installing the basic drivers on your Macintosh computer found in the User’s Guide or Quick Start Guide, and open your Logic application. The TranzPort will be automatically detected and configured for native mode operation.
For those with earlier versions of Logic 7 we have included the TranzPort.bundle file along with instructions on installing it in the Logic 7 Read Me.pdf file found on the TranzPort CDROM.
There are 2 PDF documents created specifically for Logic 7 users on the Frontier Design Group website and the TranzPort CDROM. The first, Logic 7 and TranzPort is a guide to using TranzPort with Logic 7 and contains detailed instructions for configuring the TranzPort, as well as information on how to use some of TranzPort’s less-obvious features. A quick reference chart listing the default control set for Logic is found in this useful document.
The second file, Logic Layout is a single page picture of the TranzPort with overlaid text also summarizing the Logic 7 feature set. It may be helpful to print this file and have it handy as a quick reference guide.
