Will The Magic Trackpad Bring iPad Goodness To Mac Music Apps?

Apple today made a variety of introductions today ranging from upgrading its top-of-the-line Mac Pro to a drool-worthy 12 cores to giving its sexy iMac line a speed bump.

The most interesting introduction of the day, though, is the new Magic Trackpad – a wireless pad that brings multi-touch gestures to Mac OS X computers running Snow Leopard.

More users are now working on Mac laptops than desktop computers, so the lack of multi-touch input on desktops limits development of Mac multi-touch apps.

The Magic Trackpad changes that. And, at $69, it’s within reach of just about anyone.

It’s easy to imagine interesting musical uses for the Magic Trackpad, ranging from a wireless X-Y controller to a open-ended control surface.

This raises the question: will the Magic Trackpad jumpstart mac music app development like the iPad has?
