Frontier releases AlphaTrack Version 1.2 Driver

Now you can use the AlphaTrack compact DAW controller with Ableton Live. Frontier Design Group has just released AlphaTrack’s v1.2 driver, which includes support for Live v5.2.1 or later.

Use AlphaTrack’s innovative touch-sensitive jog/shuttle strip, touch-sensitive encoder knobs, LCD display, transport buttons, user-definable buttons, and 100mm touch-sensitive fader, to control levels, pans, solos, and much more in Ableton Live. Navigate to any device parameter or map it directly to a user-programmable control for quick access and easy automation.
