AudioSwift is a new app for macOS that lets you use a trackpad as a control surface and MIDI controller in your DAW. You can move one or two faders at the same time, set the values of the pans, sends, master fader, write automation and use the trackpad as a jog wheel by using simple touch commands and without the need of moving the mouse pointer.
Control one or two faders at the same time using simple touches. Move the pans, set the send's levels, use your trackpad as a jog wheel, and write automation in a quick and easy way. It is currently supported in Pro Tools, Logic Pro and Ableton Live. But note that the jog wheel and master fader are only available in some DAWs.
Divide your trackpad into different zones to start making beats, or play sustained notes. Up to three notes can be played at the same time.
Choose a tonic note and then select a scale. Slide your fingers from left to right to play notes in the selected key. Apply pressure to the trackpad and it will send aftertouch MIDI messages. But note that aftertouch requires a trackpad with the Force Touch feature.
Use your trackpad as an XY pad to control several parameters at the same time, using one, two and three fingers configurations.
