Cut to the Chase with the ShuttleXpress!

Modeled after Contour's award-winning ShuttlePRO, the ShuttleXpress brings professional multimedia control to users at an even more attractive price.

The ShuttleXpress can be used by itself, or to even further enhance your control, along with a ShuttlePRO for multiple device control.

The ShuttleXpress is a 5 button Jog & Shuttle Multimedia Control Surface. The ShuttleXpress comes pre-configured for many of the leading Audio and Video applications. You can easily customize the ShuttleXpress for virtually any application.

The ShuttleXpress is designed for ergonomic integrity and maximizing productivity, allowing one-hand access to the five (5) fully programmable buttons and jog/shuttle knob. The inner ring or 'jog' rotates through 360 degrees and provides precision frame by frame control. The outer black ring or 'shuttle' is rubberized and spring-loaded. It facilitates fast forward and rewind. You can also use the jog and shuttle for many other purposes such as scrolling, volume control, and sequencing.

Drivers are available for Max OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and Windows 8 (32 and 64 bit).

Wonderful for Video Editing

Once I got into video editing, I started looking at various transports. I was leaning towards the advanced incarnations of this shuttle, but decided against it since most of the reviews I saw on them said it was too difficult to remember what all of the buttons were assigned to. I've been using this in After Effects and it's wonderful. It scrubs through the video timeline fantastic. I'm able to keep one hand on my mouse & the other on the transport while editing. What would have taken me an hour before now takes minutes. And I haven't even set the five buttons yet; I'm just using the jog and scrub features. I look forward to trying it out with Pro Tools this weekend. It takes some getting used to having both hands on controls instead of one on the keyboard, but it works fantastic once you get the hang of it. I've spent alot of money on crappy software/hardware over the years that I rarely or never use. I've already gotten my money's worth out of this in the first week.

Great for the money

Nice little piece of gear. The only reason I give it a 4 instead of a 5 is because it doesn't exactly feel solid...it tends to move on me just a bit. Other than that I have not problems with it. I've programed it to several different programs with no trouble and between this and my programmable mouse I touch the keyboard a lot less. Now, if I was being perfectly honest I'd say it probably doesn't improve my overall speed of production than if I just kept my left hand on the keyboard, but it does make me FEEL like I'm working faster which I think is an important thing.
