Harmony Systems gbTouch 2
Harmony Systems announced the availability of Delora gbTouch 2, an iPad application that functions as a remote controller for the Apple GarageBand Mac application program.
gbTouch 2 adds control surface features, and the ability to change the look of the app with a preference setting.
New Features & Benefits
gbTouch 2 includes new features by gbTouch 1.0 users: track names and color-coded track type. Tracks now have individual volume faders that adjust and show each track's current volume setting. A "sound generator" edit panel has been added to tweak software instrument details, and all edit panels now show the corresponding track name.
The look of the app can be changed to one of four styles from the iPad Settings application. Users can stick with a favorite or vary it frequently. gbTouch 2 is optimized for both landscape and portrait orientations in all theme styles.
gbTouch also serves as a control surface for GarageBand. The individual track controls - record, mute, solo and volume - and transport buttons on gbTouch are designed to allow the songmaker to adjust and evaluate tracks before heading into the mixing session.
gbTouch 2 requires the installation of gbLink 2.0, a small OSX application, on a Mac. gbLink provides the ability for gbTouch to communicate with GarageBand using a Wi-Fi network. gbLink is free and available for download at the Delora website, www.delora.com.
Pricing & Availability
gbTouch 2 is available for $7.99 on the App Store, and is a free upgrade for existing gbTouch 1.0 customers.
