We came across this rather cool app the other day... it's called V-Control Pro by Neyrinck and it allows you to control your favourite DAW (Pro Tools, Logic or Cubase/Nuendo) using the sensitive touchscreen of the iPad!V-Control gives you all the functionality of a dedicated hardware DAW controller plus a lot more, all for a fraction of the price! In fact, even if you don't currently own an iPad, the cost of the latest iPad plus the V-Control application is still less than half the price of a decent hardware controller!
Using the multi-touch screen of the iPad you can control the transport section of your DAW, adjust multiple faders simultaneously, control panning, mute, solo, sends, automation, plug-ins, scrub and more! What's more is that you can create an entire mix from anywhere in the studio - you don't even have to be sat in front of your computer!
V-Control is simple to set-up and gives you all the flexibility of a hardware controller, plus a load more. V-Control Pro and V-Control Free (a cut down version of the Pro app - doesn't feature jog/scrub, automation modes, input monitoring, I/O routing, plug-in editing, save/undo buttons, zoom, etc.) are both available from the iTunes store today.
