Been keeping an eye on this for a while, much less expensive than the Tangent panels

I cannot seem to find any documentation that says C1 is supported.

Hi

I hope that MIDI type of controllers will be supported.  They can be found cheap and are "easy" to make.  That means that it would be possible that some small company's do make a small controller.  For example 3 knobs (with rotary encoders) and a few button's.

Indeed, but if you've used both you'd understand why. Tangent is truly professional quality: fit, finish, feel, functionality are all excellent.

Still, it's fantastic news that the ecosystem around C1 is continuing to grow.

I've used neither, but bugged these guys for C1 compatibility more than a year ago. But ultimately, I think it's great that these options are starting to exist, similar to the pfixer panel or game controllers folks are using for lightroom.

I'm not entirely sure what a midi controller is, but this was reported (by a reader) on the Phase one blog as working well with C1

I don't have any doubt about the quality of the Tangent.

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).

At the moment I think the interface between the controller and CO is done with keyboard shortcuts or it's at least possible.  Can somebody confirm this?

I think that this makes it even simpler to make a controller.  Seems to me as a nice Teensy project with some buttons and rotary encoders (knobs).

Keyboard shortcuts seems to be how the controller I linked to above works.

The Tangent is a native API connection that Phase One and Tangent collaborated on. It is NOT sending keystrokes/shortcuts.

Its funny.
One of the best features of C1 (to me anyway) is the ability to hover the pointer over an adjustment and tune via the scroll wheel. Very fluid.
Its one of the main things that has kept me in the C1 camp.
The Mac version of LR doesn't support this. I know its petty, but its a really nice feature to have.
It appears I can now have that fluid adjustment in LR as well. Of course I'll have to set it up for C1 too, but this will be nice for my LR work.
It'll be here Thursday. Wished I had known about it sooner.
If only I could set it up for Photo Mechanic...hmm

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,

Excellent point Doug!

What you have setup for keyboard shortcuts is in no way related to what you can setup for Tangent.

Also accessing a short cut to say move a slider is no where near as fluid as using the Tangent.

Not to mention you can also cycle through modes to change the operation of each panel.  I.e Capture, Adjust, Retouch...

If you want to see it in action, sign up for a webinar tomorrow.

The whole Element Range.  But the mapping process and functionality is somewhat similar for all.
