rsTouch Reason Controller for iPad
Harmony Systems announced the availability of Delora rsTouch.
rsTouch is an iPad application that offers control surface functionality for the Propellerhead Reason music application on a Mac or PC. It emulates Reason's Mixer and transport functions, allowing nearly complete operation of Reason's transport controls and Main Mixer from the iPad, according to the company.
rsTouch works with Reason 6.5 or higher, Reason Essentials 1.5, or Record 1.5 installed on a Mac or Windows PC. It supports either "wired" MIDI connections using an iPad compatible USB MIDI interface, or "wireless" MIDI connections using iOS compatible network MIDI. Reason control surface support files are required and are available free from the Delora website, www.delora.com.
rsTouch expands the Delora Software line of music controller apps for iOS devices, including lpTouch for Logic, gbTouch and gbRemote for GarageBand, and vKiP and vKi for Kyma.
You can record and mix songs, mute or solo any channel during playback. Channel fader meters, master volume meter, and "Big Meter" provide visual feedback to monitor audio levels. You can set start and ending loop points and navigate through the song with the jog strip. Know where you're at with the timecode and bar-beat display, and channel name and number identification.
Sound setting and level adjustments are made with large, multi-touch, color-coded rotaries and faders. rsTouch's seven screens let you edit send effects, insert parameters, and EQ settings, as well as adjust channel, pan and dynamics levels. A dedicated Master screen allows adjustments of Reason's Main Mixer master section.
