TASCAM announces interface compatibility with Apple software

TASCAM's full line of FireWire audio control surfaces and interfaces are now compatible with Apple's Final Cut Pro 5 and Soundtrack Pro editing software.

Final Cut Pro 5 and Soundtrack Pro are now fully compatible with MCP (Mackie Control Protocol) devices, so users can use external audio control surfaces, including TASCAM's FW-1884 and FW-1082, to edit and manipulate audio more efficiently. TASCAM's newest audio controller, the FW-1082, has nine motorized faders for adjusting audio levels during mix playback using the revamped software. Editors can turn up a dialog line or reduce the music level during a voiceover section without clicking on breakpoints.

The transport buttons can be used to start and stop playback in any editor that supports the Mackie Control or Mackie HUI. TASCAM's FW-1082 also has a MIDI fader mode that can be used in programs like Apple Motion 2 to adjust parameters in real-time during playback.
