Avid have announced Pro Tools for the iPad Finally! This isn't a full Pro Tools software for the iPad, but that isn't necessary or ready simply because iPad's don't have nearly enough power. You can control and mix with your iPad with this new app. It's also going to be free!!! Avid have mentioned on the Pro Tools Control splash page that it will be available on the App Store soon! Take wireless remote control of Pro Tools, Media Composer, and other popular audio and video tools right from your iPad. Pro Tools | Control combines the tight hardware/software communication power of EUCON technology with the multi-touch advancements of iOS, putting a whole new world of creative possibilities at your fingertips. Some highlights provided by Avid include:
Create better mixes faster From scrolling through tons of tracks, to manipulating multiple faders and knobs, Pro Tools | Control lets you interact with your mix in ways you can’t do with a keyboard and mouse alone.
