$2.99 App Lets You Control GarageBand From Your iPadApr 4th, 2010 | By James Lewin | Category: Apple iPad, Podcasting Software
Entrackment (App Store link) is a $2.99 app for the Apple iPad that turns it into a wireless control surface for GarageBand.
If you create podcasts in GarageBand and you’ve got an iPad, Entrackment is a no-brainer. It’s cheap and it lets you control all the primary recording functions of GarageBand.
Entrackment automatically adapts its controls to the channels that you’ve set up in GarageBand. It then lets you control global playback and level, pan, mute, etc for each channel.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide access to all the features in GarageBand, by a longshot. But, if you’re someone who uses a fairly standard setup for each podcast, you should be to control much of your recording process away from your computer.
The multi-touch control of GarageBand’s record features is less fiddly than using a mouse, and could help minimize computer noise while you record by letting you sit away from your computer.
