My friend, George Starcher, recently posted about using a Griffen Powermate as an oversized cough button for a podcasting rig. I must admit, since my Podcasting setup doesn’t use a board, I’ve always had a bit of cough button envy and the the MPU listeners can attest to the many random strange sounds that come out of me on some episodes. So I took George’s advice and bought a Powermate. It works brilliantly and sits very nicely next to my Magic Trackpad. Griffen did a good job with the controller software. It even accepts Applescrips. I expect to get creative with this thing. Stay tuned.
