8/10: Computer Music Special (43, 2010)

"Entrackment is an absolute bargain for GarageBand users."

...

"this Wi-Fi control-surface app is straightforward to use but powerful enough to compete with the big boys."

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Composing music is all about creativity.

Entrackment is an easy to use controller surface that gives you fast and accurate access to the most common used functions in Garageband.

The majority of controller surfaces on the market today have one big drawback - they have a fixed layout and size for their faders and buttons. Entrackment takes advantage of the multi touch screen of iPad and adapts the interface for different tasks and setups.

Main features:

★ Quick Track Access

Stop wasting time trying to find the knob for a track on your controller surface. Entrackment lists full track labels and gives you direct access to the corresponding controls with a touch!

★ Dynamic accuracy

Pan from left to right with a small gesture around the pan. Make a wider movement in order to fine tune.

★ Wireless and Mobile

Entrackment might not be as powerful as your big-ass 32 channel controller for symphony orchestra arrangement, but hey.. you can bring it when you go over to the recording room to improvise some riffs!

★ Dynamic Layout

Only used tracks are visible - enabling large controls that you don't need to lean over to hit with the finger. Panning knobs are revealed when needed.

Note! Minimum requirements:

Mac OS X 10.5 or later for Intel based Macintosh computers.

Wifi Network, used by both host computer and iPad.

Supported versions of Garageband:

'08, '09 and '11 (as part of iLife '08, iLife '09 and iLife '11).

In addition to this, the app also requires the Entrackment Client plugin to be installed on the host computer.

( Plugin is downloadable from http://www.talkative.se/products/entrackment )

Doesn't work with GarageBand 11

:
Really like the app but now can't use it pending GarageBand 11 support. Probably just the plugin. Great idea and well implemented though.

3/5 stars

GB 11?

:
This is going to be a cool but I have moved to GB 11 and, unlike advertised above, the app and the plugin still seem to be only for GB 9. Had to crash my software to get out. Let us know when it is really ready. Support site is only mentions iLife 9.

3/5 stars

Good for listening

:
The app does perform well. I am able to start recording a track while not attached to the keyboard, use the faders on review, but the major point of using this type of app is to have the volume and panning adjustments to stay permanent on volume automation. The changes on the volume is reflective to the master volume of that track. There needs to be an option to have the changes stay as part of the volume mix.

The other disappointing part of the app is that the lag time is heavy when trying to adjust 2 or more faders at the same time. Unless you are making quick adjustments, the lag time is heavy.

The Ui is very clean and allows for quick access. The install was quick and painless. For 99 cents, the app is great. But at other prices, the current issues would be a show-stopper for me. The main advantage for this app is that the other related apps do not support GarageBand while entrackment does. If apps like Ac-7 core worked with GarageBand, I would have gone with them.
