We first checked out AudioSwift before it was officially released and I have to say, using it in Logic Pro X on a MacBook Pro, was really impressed. The concept is simple and it works surprisingly well after a couple of minutes of playing around with it.
Version 1.2 has been released today, but before we go into the new features added (mixer mode support for Reaper users for example), let's explore what AudioSwift is all about and the main features from version 1 upwards.
AudioSwift is a Mac OS app that lets you use a trackpad as a control surface and MIDI controller in your DAW. You will be able to move one or two faders at the same time, set the values of the panning, sends, master fader, write automation and use the trackpad as a jog wheel, all by just using simple touches and without the need of moving the mouse pointer, click and drag over each parameter. AudioSwift also let you make beats, play notes in a key and use the trackpad as an XY pad.
