        Comments about Contour Design Shuttle-Xpress NLE Multimedia Controller (Black):

        I could go on about this little controller forever. I use it for editing videos, and I love, love, love it. It's very easy to get set up and assign the hotkeys, and once it's ready to go, it's a real lifesaver for my hands. It's a comfortable size for my hand, and it's very well-built, so it feels sturdy.

            I've been editing with Premiere Pro for greater than 10 years. I work a lot with multiple camera set-ups and having the ability to move frame-by-frame with the wheel has greatly simplified cuts between cameras and for video synching. It was easy to set-up and I was using it a under 5 minutes on a project that was already in motion. It has decent tactile feel and weight and the presets for Adobe Premier Pro were good enough for me. If you've ever spent a few hours in the editing process, you'll want to add this to your setup.

              Comments about Contour Design Shuttle-Xpress NLE Multimedia Controller (Black):

              I began video editing in the waning days of tape-to-tape editing when we used huge (by today's standards) mechanical editing systems. I don't miss those days at all... with one exception.The mechanical systems I used all included something called a "jog-shuttle wheel" that enabled you to easily move forward and backward in your footage either frame-by-frame, or at user-controlled continuously-variable speeds. I've used several digital video editing programs that attempt to simulate the function of a jog-shuttle wheel using mouse controls to manipulate an on-screen representation of the jog-shuttle. The effect is NOTHING like an actual jog-shuttle control.I cannot begin to describe how much of a productivity boost this device gives you. The five-button layout (buttons can either be custom programmed by you, or you can choose a default set of button behaviors), great design, and heavy, no-slip construction enable to sit it off to the side and use it without even looking at it.This device give you a degree of control when navigating your video timeline that you may never have experienced before.

                Works fantastic, I tried it with all my software, runs great.
                Perfect for editing sound or video, but does great on graphics and publishing too.

                              For this price it's very good, helpfull gadget, but of course it not a PRO line. If You looking this for Your job, I would try something more professional.
                              I'm using it in Adobe Premiere and AfterEffect only, and i need it to switch beetwen few frames (for animation in 3D program). And it's good anough for me.

                                    Using with adobe CS6 suite (mostly premier pro and after effects) and fruity loops. Makes navigating around in your projects so much quicker and easier. Its incredibly stable for being so small, has precise frame by frame controls, its good looking, and overall a solid, well built product. I love how every function is programmable for different software and that it automatically recognizes which program you're in. For the price, you simply cant beat it.

                                    My right hand/forearm was getting fatigued during marathon video editing sessions with a mouse and keyboard.I now use the Shuttle Xpress with my left hand, which has been programmed with my most frequently used keyboard keystrokes. The jog wheel is great! The inner wheel is frame by frame, and the outer ring FF or RW with differing speeds.Works well with Grass Valley Edius. Can be customized for any other software. Very nice tool that I should have bought long ago.My right hand and arm doesn't ache so much anymore!

                                        I use this for editing in premiere pro cs6 and it works perfectly. Has a great balance of comfort and features. The jog feels much more like a setup 5 times the price. I would definitely buy the Shuttle-xpress again. It's downright awesome!

                                          I had the original Shuttle Pro, but I found that I was just not using all of the buttons (I use keyboard shortcuts most of the time) and it was taking up a chunk of my desk. My son was looking into getting a Shuttle Pro so I gave him mine and purchased the Shuttle-Xpress. I love it. It has just enough buttons for the way I work in the Adobe Suite and it takes up less space.

                                          I use this for video editing, and it makes things go a lot faster. I can be programmed to do any key combination you want, so you don't have to look around for different buttons.
                                          I wish the software was more flexible.
                                          Great price, easy to add to any computer (USB)

                                            There was a time when rotary controllers like this cost many hundreds of dollars and were only found in the best sorts of broadcast equipment. The look, the feel, and the function of this unit are great. It is so small and compact that it is essentially portable. This is one of the better buys I've made.

                                                using it for a video scouting program - fully programmable buttons make watching/coaching a breeze!

                                                might need to get another one so we don't have to fight over the controller!
