In a move that adds even greater functionality and ease of use to the latest version of its Cool Edit Pro digital audio production software, Syntrillium Software introduced the Red Rover multitrack remote control interface, providing a fully featured dedicated remote control device that operates seamlessly with the software package. The introduction, according to Syntrillium President Bob Ellison, provides Cool Edit Pro 2.0 users with an even simpler means of manipulating the program's functions.
Syntrillium's Red Rover is a small USB device designed with ergonomic and space-saving functionality in mind. The unit features standard multitrack transport controls that seamlessly interact with and control Cool Edit Pro's on-screen displays. In addition, the control unit provides unlimited access to all 128 tracks of possible audio on Cool Edit Pro.
"The addition of Red Rover to Cool Edit Pro's arsenal of digital audio production tools is a logical progression in Syntrillium's effort to provide users at every level with the easiest, most cost-effective means to create high-quality digital audio productions," Ellison said today. "What's more, Red Rover comes in at a price point far below that of other dedicated controllers while offering a degree of track access that far exceeds what other digital mixers and alternative interfaces provide."
Syntrillium's new Cool Edit Pro 2.0 digital audio software programs provide up to 128 tracks of 32-bit recording capability at up to 192 kHz (including 96 kHz) and support of ActiveMovie/DirectX plug-ins. The digital audio software package also includes multiple levels of undo, punch-in recording and SMPTE and MIDI timecode sync among many other features. Cool Edit Pro 2.0 also includes new features such as real-time effects and track EQ, disk-at-once CD burning, MIDI and video support MTC master generation and loop-based composition among others.
