I see that that the same blog post also mentions another controller

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Razer-Orbweaver-Chroma-Mechanical-Gaming/dp/B013UH30VU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1481696046&sr=8-1&keywords=chroma+elite

Both of these look relatively low cost ways of reducing the need to throw a mouse pointer around the screen.

Cheer,

Graham

Thanks, this is something I had never thought of before, but any of these hardware controllers look like useful additions. I rather like the idea.

Cheers,

Is Palette Gear just using keyboard shortcuts, or do they have it working in a more integrated way?

Also, I wonder if Tangent would be interested in making a lower-end photographer-specific product (like the Ripple, but with mostly knobs instead of mostly trackballs). They should be able to get us the same three big knobs and twelve buttons as the Ripple, plus nine or so small knobs instead of the three trackballs, for a Ripple-like price? I suspect a lot of people will pay $350 who won't pay $850 for the Element Kb knob board (and you really want the $600 Element Bt buttons as well) or around $1500 for a Wave. Lower-end video editors would also love this, because they could use it with the existing Ripple to have a cheaper (if not as elegant) version of a Wave or Element...

I expect them to use keyboard shortcuts.

For another example with what could be used to (forget the bright colors, they can be turned off) :

This combined with software that turn midi msg's inside keyboard shortcuts

My Palette Expert kit came in yesterday.
For Lightroom, it is really nice. For Capture One, not so much. There's no support for the hardware sliders. The knobs appear to be a "direct connect" vs keyboard shortcuts, however they have very limited support.  The buttons are the most "mappable", but the expert kit comes with only two. I think three should be the minimum.
Bear in mind that Capture One support is only in the beta stage. If they can get it to the same level as LR, it will be amazing.
You can map out several profiles for one app and toggle through (with a button). You can have one profile for culling, one for sharpening, etc. But again the support is so limited its not much use (in C1).

Now as far as keyboard shortcuts, yeah it supports that perfectly.
I have mapped out profiles for Photo Mechanic, Safari and my mail apps. It will automatically switch profiles as you switch apps. Very slick.

Now back to the hardware sliders. If you like listening to music while editing, it is a great volume control. I mapped one of the sliders to handle system volume for every profile.

Also, you may want to opt for the pro kit, kinda wished I did.

What makes the knob support limited? Do they not really work (too coarse?), or is there only limited mapping (e.g. you can control only certain functions)? I'm also a bit surprised that knobs (sort of) work, but sliders don't - they'd seem like they'd be the same interface - each is sending a single value along a linear scale. The knobs actually seem much more confusing, because they have no endpoint - what do they do when they reach the end of C1's scale?

Well in capture one the knob gives relative commands like (increase by 1, decrease by 1 or sometimes depending on the controller increase by x (>1)) and those are mapped to keyboard shortcuts.

The big problem with sliders (and classic knobs) is that they have a absolute position,  for example "brightness + 25".  When you move to another image, that has for example "brightness -10", the slider is in the wrong position.  Pro controllers often use motorised sliders, they can be moved to another position.

midi is an interface protocol that's widely used in music equipment.  And there lot's of cheap controllers for that (50 euro's or so).

Better yet, you can get very useful Midi controllers for tablets and phones. There's a very nice one, Midi Designer, for the iPad that lets you build your own controller layouts with sliders, buttons and dials. Very useful.

The Tangent is a native API connection that Phase One and Tangent collaborated on. It is NOT sending keystrokes/shortcuts.
Is this API available or documented anywhere?

Tangent is also available as an iPad/Android app

I got an email from the folks at Palette.
In short their goal is to have the same control as is in Lightroom. However, it will take some cooperation from Phase One. I hope the folks from Phase One are paying attention.
Not all of us can afford a Tangent setup, and I'm sure there are those that don't wanna pony up for Palette either. However, one would think that P1 would want to appeal to more users, and this is another way of doing it.

I sent back my Expert kit and ordered the Pro. It will be here today, which works out since Palette just released another beta.
Fun times this weekend.

True, but if it works, its still an out of the box solution, for those who are willing to pay.

Hi

I found a cheap midi controller for 89 euro that's highly configurable, the Arturia beatstep.  It has 16 small knobs (rotary encoders) and 1 bigger one and 16 buttons (well drumpads) and can have 16 different presets for them.  I've been playing around with it for a few hours and it's definitely workable.

For those that want my first mappings (controller to midi and midi to keypresses), without any guaranty :

edit: Added a test set of CO shortkey mappings.

Review - http://shotkit.com/palette-review/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=shotkit&utm_content=Palette%20Review%20-%20Touch%20Editing

$500 and the dials are not that good, mmm then the element Kb comes in price range.

BTW. I have no problems with my dials on the arturia beatstep (89), but there dented and I'm rather sure that those on the element are better.

Some extra info about using a Arturia Beatstep (about 90 euro's) as controller by another user :
