Working with Pro Tools is becomes more and more popular but with a laptop there is no proper numeric key pad which is a pain for Pro Tools when accessing transport or location points in Pro Tools. You can of course add a full keyboard but it is a comparatively large lump to carry around. But all may not be lost. The guys at Mobee have come up with an overlay for Apple’s Magic Trackpad that converts it into a Num Pad.
Place any of the Magic Numpad films on your Magic Trackpad and then install the free software and you’ll instantaneously get both Trackpad and Numpad functionality in one device. And for maximum flexibility, it supports your choice of Tap or Click modes or both.
You get three high-technology Magic Films that let you choose the type of functionality you want. Each film incorporates three exclusive layers: A bubble-proof re-usable material on the bottom, an ultra-soft anti glare material on top and high-quality printed “keys” in the middle for full protection. One film gives you a classic Numpad plus a Trackpad area; another provides a full Numpad (similar to the numeric keypad on an extended Apple keyboard); and another offers the full Numpad along with six customisable keys.
