Review: Contour Design ShuttlePro v2

 

iMovie and Final Cut Express have given consumers the ability to edit videos on the own Macs. One thing missing, as compared to a professional setup, is a jog/shuttle controller. Contour Design's ShuttlePro v2 provides consumers (and professionals on a...

Durable, allows better control over many tasks, highly-customizable

Software somewhat clunky (an image-based method for choosing buttons, rather than a drop-down list would improve it a lot)

Video and audio editing is much easier with this customizable, well-made controller.

Contour Design ShuttlePro V.2

 

I've previously reviewed two multimedia controllers from Contour Design. The first, the original ShuttlePro controller, was outstanding in that it was the only thing of its kind at the time of its introduction--that is, the only pro-oriented...

Works great with Pro Tools and Nuendo

 

I only wish they would make a new version with more buttons. Another pair of buttons on the left & right, and a third row on the top would be great.

This is a fantastic controller. I use it for audio editing in Pro Tools. It's the easiest controller I've ever used. It has an ergonomic style that fits my hand, so I never have to look down at what I'm doing. Combined with my Logitech track ball, I...

There are no cons. Perhaps a little more variety for what can be assigned to the jog wheel would be nice. Programming macros is a little more involved than it should, but its not a deal breaker- the important thing is that it works well

Works like a champ even in an industrial shop

 

Highly recommended for use with Mach3 CNC controller software since it is supported directly within the software.

I used the ShuttlePro as a CNC system pendant controller for the past 6 months and it has worked excellent. Despite having it's USB cable run over by the equipment, being dropped onto concrete more than a dozen times and living in a dust covered...

While I am using the ShuttlePro in a way it wasn't intended these comments can be somewhat discarded. It would be great if they provided better "covers" over the buttons that hold the labels in place. Including a "template" for use in Word to print the...

Great product!

 

For the price of the ShuttlePRO v.2 nothing else can compare. I use this for just about everything on my Mac at home and at work. It make browsing the web much faster, as well as working flawlessly with Final Cut Pro, Soundtrack Pro and other high-end...

With 15 buttons, a jog wheel, and shuttle ring that are ALL customizable on a per-application basis the ShuttlePRO v.2 is a great tool for multi-tasking. And with the software on the Mac (haven't tried it under Windows) customizing what each button...

The only thing I consider to be a big flaw is where the USB cable attaches to the main unit. Since I travel frequently and take the shuttle with me I feel that this point could cause stress on the cable and eventually (probably 3 to 5 years) could...

Increase Productivity

 

Go to Contour Design website, download pdf manual and driver. Read manual, install driver and THEN plug the unit in. Newegg gets double gold stars for delivery on this one. Ordered late on a Wed. Paid for two day delivery. It shipped on Thur, from the...

Very easy set-up. The tactile is excellent for all keys especially the jog and shuttle, as is the response. Key mapping for applications, not pre-programmed, is very straight forward. Utilizing a two handed approach reduces the previously required time...

Installation steps included with the package are, for my preference, are out of order. No other negative comments

Not quite what I expected

 

Picture doesn\'t show that unit has a power cord you have to attach. I was expecting a flip out power plug from the charger. The power cord makes it less convenient for traveling. Otherwise it\'s fine; your typical charger.
