The long-rumored Magic Trackpad from Apple is finally available. It uses the same multi-touch technology and swipe, pinch and scroll gestures like the trackpads in Mac Book Pro, but with 80% larger size. The wireless Bluetooth device with durable glass surface – which also acts as a giant button – sounds like a perfect match to the new Pro Tools Custom Keyboard.
We’ll check it out with Pro Tools as soon as our initial order arrives. Let’s see if it can replace the classic Kensington trackball for heavy duty users who want to avoid the dreaded “mouse arm” syndrome.
