    I have been using the Shuttle Pro for a couple of years now. I love this thing. The fact that you can build totally custom settings for nearly any application on the computer makes it very powerful. My only problem is remembering what is programmed on what button, but they make this easy as you can pull up the jog wheel interface, and look, or make a print out of what is programmed (also located in the interface). Awesome with the whole Adobe Production Suite Works well with FCP too. But do not limit yourself to just the NLEs, I use it with everything from Photoshop to Excel.

    It is super easy to program and offers ways of working that I never thought of before. Another thing is being that it is so programmable, When editing, you rarely need to touch the keyboard. So one hand stays on the mouse, one on the shuttle pro, and you are one with the computer.

    My only gripe is that they force you to have every setting for every piece of software known to mankind. I actually took the time to delete everything I did not use so when modifying my settings, I did not have to scroll through 200 other software titles to get there. If you update the drivers, you need to do it all again. Actually as I use it more and more I am finding that their default set ups are no where near my mind set, so I start from scratch. But they give you a place to start from.

    Lastly, 1 recommendation... (from experience)
    Choose a button for save and for undo. Make this a standard across all your programmed applications. This way you are not constantly having to remember where they are in program a or z. I personally use 2 buttons on the left side of the lower row (far right undo, and second in, save).

    When I bought this item I thought it would be pretty simple to use and get used to. But after looking for a video on the net on how to program it, I have hit a wall. I've tried programming it but it seems not to take so well. It resorts back to origiinal state every time. The programming is not as easy as I thought. I have gone back to using a mouse until I can find a video with step by step programming instructions for newbies. Not everyone is a genius when it comes to new programs. Please make a video for this device so that I can use it properly. Thanks

      Comments about Contour Design ShuttlePRO v2 - NLE Multimedia Controller:

      Installed and configured with Final Cut 7. It would never act as intended (fast forward/reverse mostly). When turning the wheel it would also force mac to do other operations, like showing the dock, or mission control while in Final Cut, making it largely unusable. I could not figure how to override but maybe there's a way. ****The biggest issue was it forced my mac to restart about four times while running Final Cut. This has never been an issue for me until I installed this jog wheel. I've returned the item.

        Using with Lightroom. Any shortcomings so far have been on LR's end with lack of shortcut key options. If the shortcut exists it can be assigned to the ShuttlePRO. ShuttlePRO is well constructed and ergonomical. I think adding a mouse feature to the bottom of it would be innovative.

        I use this for premiere pro and works generally great. It saves time specially if you use the buttons to apply to complex keyboard shortcuts
        its easily customizable to your needs

        The major problem i found is that drivers dont work propperly under win7 (they know this issue) and sometimes the shuttle appears as disconnected.

        Edit voice over tracks has never been faster - I can completely edit long passages in Pro Tools 11 without ever having to touch the keyboard.

        My only issue - I can't get the shuttle to work for scrubbing. The jog wheel works just fine, but the shuttle wheel changes "Spaces" in OSX rather than scrubbing. Regardless, the ShuttlePRO v2 is still worth every penny of its cost.

              Returning this today after multiple attempts to reach customer service. It does not ship with updated drivers for Adobe CS6 or CC; latest is CS5.5. While there is a download on their service forum it did not work with my unit. This product is not up to date with current software editions.

                    I can not imagine editing video without this controller under my left hand. I have been using these for Years, and just ordered my third one now. The previous one lasted about 5 years with heavy use before one of the main buttons I use gave out, and I have no problem with getting a new one. These last longer than the mice I use. Highly customizable for programming, I have it set up to just speed thru edits that I use it without thinking about it (which is good because when I think I get confused!). It can be programed and used in about any application too.

                      I use the ShuttlePRO in Lightroom to quickly sort/develop photos and I use it in other applications like Outlook and Safari to speed up my day-to-day tasks.

                      I like how easy it is to program. You just open the configuration tool, press the button on the ShuttlePRO that you want to program and then tell it which keystroke, command or macro to run - EASY!

                      I found that the driver software and userguide were available on the manufacturers website so I didn't need the CD included in the pack. I don't have a CD/DVD drive installed (as I use for a 2nd HDD) so that was handy.

                      I found that the software to have a few bugs in it and will sometimes become unstable. Restarting the application tends to fix the issues. It doesn't happen much but it is annoying when it does.

                      I am going to get another one of these for my parents when they get Lightroom installed.

                        An extra mouse that can do everything you want on the PACS and then some. The shuttle and jog settings are the best for MRI and CT.

                        I am sold!

                                    The controller is very ergonomic and easy to program and the reviews and information available tout its ability to handle multiple keystroke combinations (i.e. programming one button to create a Ctrl+Alt+Delete). While this is usefull it grossly overshadowed by the fact everyone seems to fail to mention; IT CANNOT PROCESS TWO OR MORE BUTTON PRESSES AT THE SAME TIME! So while you can program one buton for Ctrl+Alt and one for R, pressing them together does not result in a Ctrl+Alt+R command. This limits the buttons to one dimentional comand possibilities here as the 9 top buttons could do so muich more if the bottom butons could be programed as key modifiers which actually worked like any 5 dollar keyboard or mouse. ... and yes the company has been aware of this since 2010.

                                          Ordered this as a holiday gift for my son to use in his college classes for film studies. He reports it works with his Avid student SKU and saving him a ton of labor.
