M-Audio’s iControl, originally announced in April, should be available at Apple Stores this week, reports AP. iControl is a dedicated hardware controller specifically designed for Apple’s GarageBand. “iControl delivers total tactile control over GarageBand. Dedicated transport buttons and jog wheel put record and playback functions at your fingertips. Its eight rotary encoders are easily assigned to track functions like volume and pan, or to parameters for effects such as GarageBand’s EQ or any other AU plug-in. iControl also provides dedicated mute, solo and record-enable buttons for each track, plus a master volume fader. iControl is USB bus-powered, class-compliant, and automatically recognized by GarageBand.” iControl is priced at US$179. M-Audio also today announced JamLab ($79) and Fast Track Studio PODcasting Edition ($179). Both will be available in July. [Thanks to MacMinute reader Gilbert Galdo for this news tip.]
