M-Audio has announced the new iControl hardware for GarageBand. No audio, but one heck of a control surface for manipulating your GarageBand songs with physical controls: jog wheel, transport, individual track controls and volume knobs, master volume fader, and individual track parameters for GarageBand effects and settings. Plug it in via USB (class-compliant so no drivers), and it’s automatically recognized by GarageBand with zero configuration. Price expected under US$200 (EUR 141 list). No word on when it’s shipping yet. Not much use if you’re a Logic lover, but if GarageBand is your thing, this is a must-have.
