If you’re already using an iPad in conjunction with your NewTek TriCaster 8000, 855, 850, 455, 450, 300 or 40, you can now shift another function over to your favourite fondleslab – audio mixing.
NewTek’s newly-announced NewTek TriCaster Audio Mixer app is available now from the App Store for free. Once it’s on your iPad, you simply connect with your TriCaster of choice over WiFi and the app gives you remote control over all your audio channels, allows you to monitor UV meters in realtime and synchronises with your desktop audio mixer automatically.
“Using your iPad as the audio mixer control surface for TriCaster dramatically expands the flexibility of our systems,” said Andrew Cross, NewTek CTO. “By combining the mixer with the ease and mobility of the iPad, you can share the workload of a multi-camera production.”
You can use the built-in presets to switch between commonly-used settings, and the app should auto-detect which model of TriCaster it’s connected to and show the appropriate controls, so you won’t find yourself trying to adjust the levels on channels that don’t exist.
