Contour Design has released a new ShuttlePro and ShuttleXpress Mac driver with optimized settings for Apple Final Cut Studio.
The driver includes settings for Apple Final Cut Pro 7, Apple Soundtrack Pro 3, Apple Motion 4, Apple DVD Studio Pro 4, and Apple Color 1.5. All-new settings for Adobe Lightroom and Media 100 Suite are also included.
ShuttlePRO V.2 allows one-handed access to 15 fully-programmable buttons, a jog knob, and a spring loaded shuttle wheel. At the head of the ShuttlePrp are nine programmable buttons complete with removable keycaps. The inner ring or "jog knob" at the center of the ShuttlePRO rotates a full 360˚ to provide frame-by-frame control, while the outer black ring or rubberized "shuttle wheel" facilitates fast forward and rewind. The jog and shuttle can also be configured for many other purposes including scrolling, volume control, and sequencing.
The ShuttleXpress offers a professional multimedia controller, five oversized buttons, a jog knob, and a shuttle wheel. It can be used alone or simultaneously with a ShuttlePro.
The new Mac driver (version 2.1.5) is immediately available for download from the Contour Design web site at http://retail.contourdesign.com/?/products/23 . ShuttlePro V.2 and ShuttleXpress are available from Contour Design’s worldwide reseller channel at manufacturer's suggested retail prices of US$109.95 and $59.95, respectively.
