ProRemote Now Available on Apple App Store

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 7, 2008) - Far Out Labs today announced the availability of ProRemote on the Apple App Store. ProRemote allows iPhone and iPod touch users to control professional audio products such as Digidesign's ProTools and Apple's Logic Music production system using a wireless network.

"I created ProRemote to make it simple to maintain the creative train of thought while remotely controlling and adjusting pro audio products during the recording process," said Alex Lelièvre, Principal Computer Scientist/Owner Far Out Labs. "The combination of the iPhone SDK and the revolutionary iPhone and iPod touch devices met my development needs perfectly helping make the vision of what I wanted to create a reality."

ProRemote provides users with either eight channels (light edition) or 32 channels of remote control with real-time color metering and 40mm touch sensitive virtual faders. Up to eight faders can be controlled simultaneously.

The full version of ProRemote also includes a dedicated transport view that allows the user to do audio scrubbing/shuttling, set markers (memory locations) and control many advanced aspects of the transport as well as basic play, record, and return to zero. Upgrades are planned for the full version of ProRemote including enhanced support for other Digital Audio Workstations.

ProRemote communicates using its own highly optimized proprietary protocol to ensure smooth delivery of real-time data over a Wi-Fi link. The Server component has been streamlined for use with CPU intensive digital audio applications and will not interfere with professional sessions.

A "light" version of ProRemote is priced at $39.00 and the full version is $149.00 from Apple's App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at
