Saitara Software has introduced AC-X, a 16 channel wireless control surface for Apple’s Logic Pro X and other recording/mixing systems.
The app uses the industry standard MCU protocol, so should work with most recording/mixing software out there (but not Pro Tools yet). For the initial release, the control panel button layout is set up for Logic Pro X, but the developer says that the main mixing screen should work with most other systems.
AC-X was designed to maximize screen real estate for hands-on mixing, while also giving quick access to deeper functions. Likewise, the transport buttons (play, stop etc) are integrated into the time display at the top of the screen to always be available.
Here’s an example of AC-X in action:
AC-X is available for US $9.99 in the App Store.
