    Adding filters and effects with a tap is a lot like DJs and musicians actually do with today with third-party touch control panels, or even iPhone/iPad apps.

    We're basically just watching him mix this.
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 6:08:33 PM
    Applying an envelope filter via a finger swipe on the Touch Bar is very cool.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 6:08:49 PM
    "This was all done right on the Touch Bar. It's a revolutionary tool for DJs. Update to DJ Pro coming later this year."
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 6:08:54 PM
    I'm still not giving up my turntables, however. That app was DJ Pro, BTW...

  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 6:09:56 PM
    The multitouch part -- up to ten finger inputs -- really gives you a lot of possibilities. Really constrained only by the fact that the bar itself is pretty narrow.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 6:10:04 PM
    Pixelmator, Sketch, DaVinci Resolve, etc

    Based on this video, the space gray models look insanely cool.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 6:11:01 PM
    Ok I'm not going to transcribe him, but I can't wait to hear "ah-loo-MIN-ium"
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 6:13:10 PM
    Big pad + Touch Bar = awesome new stuff! -- But -- flatter keyboard and USB-C = tough sell for many

    "It's incredible ... how far we have come."
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 6:14:36 PM
    Somebody get on kickstarter and make a retro PowerBook-looking modern laptop.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 6:14:47 PM
    "The new MacBook Pro is 6.8 million times faster" than the PowerBook
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 6:15:01 PM
    Hey, the original PowerBook didn't have USB-A or HDMI ports, either.
