Topic: Is Alphatrack going to be replaced by an iPad app?

Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I have this fear that the Alphatrack that I love is going to be fazed out and replaced by some silly iPad app.  I can see why Frontier would do this: no dealing with Chinese low bid manufacturers that don't know how to solder properly.

I really hope that this isn't their plan.  An iPad app would have immediate appeal, but you can't use it by feel when you're looking at another screen.  When you get past the initial "gee whiz that's so cool" feeling, there actually isn't much advantage to it over just using the mouse directly in your DAW.

Anyway, maybe I'm just paranoid.  Maybe the lack of attentiveness by Frontier in this forum and the ignoring of requests for things like the EQ to be fixed in Pro Tools or 64 bit Mac support has nothing to do an iPad app taking the place of the current hardware.

Hi Ikingston,

We are now in the process of updating the Mac drivers for TranzPort and AlphaTrack so they can be used in the 64-Bit kernel.  Check back periodically to our downloads page for the update:

Thanks for your patience and support.

This is good news....but will the updates also address all the other issues posted?  Like the EQ issue in PT for instance?

Hi everyone,

I'm making my rounds to let everyone know that updated drivers (now supporting the 64-Bit kernel) are now available for AlphaTrack (v1.4) and TranzPort (v1.4.3) on our site:

http://frontierdesign.com/Products/AlphaTrack/Downloads
http://frontierdesign.com/Products/TranzPort/Downloads

Don't forget to unplug your device prior to installing the drivers.
