Tangent RIPPLE reviews

The Ripple Color Correction Panel is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in Capture One Pro 10 I was trying to decide whether to buy this one or the Tangent Element module that costs $1100, but decided the Ripple will be just fine. I'm so happy with my choice because the smaller size fits perfect on my desk and I spent the extra money to get the Tangent Element Kb input. Using both of these with C1 completely changes the way that I work with C1 making it much more tactile and intuitive. Color balancing with the Ripple is so much better than trying to do the same with a mouse. Anyone working with C1 in a studio or on a regular basis should have these Tangent input devices. It will allow you to focus on your images and not even think about the program. Highly recommended!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product! It's a much more accurate way of controlling primaries than using a mouse or trackball. Only one addition I would like to see is a button to enable adjusting the overall correction, 4th color wheel in resolve. The feel of the trackballs is very good and it takes up very little desk space which is an advantage. Advanced colorists will appreciate the larger Tangent units, but this is very useful and portable. I would not build a grading suite around this product, the Element is for that, but for anything but full time use this is very good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Makes grading faster and more precise I use the Ripple in conjunction with FCPX and the Color Finale plug in. I have had it for a couple of weeks now and I like it, I don't plan on returning. I learned to color grade like many of us fine tuning with a mouse using color wheels. Over time I got precise and created a work flow with the traditional mouse. The Ripple makes color grading a heck of a lot easier, more fun and you can really really fine tune and not settle for close enough. You can customize what the buttons do to create your profile which is awesome and I highly recommend. You can also adjust the sensitivity of each dial and wheel. I'm looking forward to future firmware updates and upgrades take the customization further. The price and build is what gets this a 3 star, specifically the price. The plastic feels slightly cheap If it were to somehow fall of my desk I could see it breaking. For whats available on the market in 2016 this is a good deal but I feel it is still too expensive for what it does. If you were to ask my opinion I would say a $200 price tag would more appropriate. With that said I would still buy Tangent products again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I recomend this product. I bought to use with Resolve, as I was using a tablet and mouse which is hard to achieve precise colour adjustments. Its perfect for this...obviously you still need to use your keyboard and mouse, this is in no way an alternative for the Element or Wave panels. To my surprise its fantastic in PP, click on a clip and move the dial or ball it automatically adds the Lumetri color effect and away you go.. workflow increased in a massive way!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the price! I do minor color correction for my edits and I've been using the iPad control panel for years and this is the logical next step. The tactile controls are a huge improvement, and the knobs and roller balls work great. The design is intuitive and all of everything worked great out of the box. Highly recommend to anyone that doesn't want to spend thousands on a full control panel, though I can't recommend it to any colorists that do correction full time and need a more robust setup - it is as basic as it looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the Price & Portability On the outset, it looked a little small. I used this to some advantage, however. With one hand, I can span two trackerballs comfortably. The controls are tight, which I prefer over wimpier controls on , well, other control surfaces. You can get the Ripple working on one hand if you're inclined to use a mouse or Wacom with the other hand. Although some may disagree, the whole reason for the control surface is to do several things at once, so I can easily move my way through the interface to get very quick rough results. I nicknamed mine Fallout Boy because if you turn the base over, the trackerballs will roll out of it. Just be careful not to let them fall. The base itself is pretty hefty for size. The surrounding area near the trackers feels responsive, a little tight, which is the way I like to work. I mostly use my left hand on the interface, and the right hand assists and operates other functions. If they had just put light plastic inside, I think it might have been a bit disappointing. Equipment should feel professional, i.e., HEAVY. It's really easy to memorize with the muscle memory in your hands. I've never had a problem finding a setting or control on this simple small interface. Speaking of small, the Ripple comes with two velour bags- one for base, one for trackerballs. You can pack it and grab your laptop and get on the plane. Really simple. Tangent took the controls that matter most and mapped them on the ripple. You have RGB trackers and rotary dials for levels of each. You also have a reset button for tracker reset and also one for each rotary reset. The B button is to toggle on and off the grade. Then there's the mysterious A button. I have heard it will control something in particular, but the Tangent people have not figured out what that will be. Interesting. Right now, the system integrates with Speedgrade, Premiere Pro, daVinci Resolve. Assimilate & Nucoda are coming soon. Great Price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good from the price! I'm pretty impressed. It's great for portability, and obviously, they're working more programs with it. So far, I've used it in Resolve 12.5, Premiere CC (Lumetri) it can work with just about any Grading software using the Tangent mapper software. I hope they keep growing this product. I tried it in SpeedGrade. It works great. Haven't tried it in After Effects, not sure that it can be mapped in that one. Still, for $350, it's a deal! You don't create an inexpensive product for just a few sells. I think they're going to sell a lot by opening up compatibility. That having been said, the A button has no function in Resolve. Sounds like a fast deadline at Tangent. Also, you've probably read this before: the trackerballs will fall out if the component is inverted. Do not invert the component! One more thing; kudos to B&H for making this available before everyone else. They're speedy boys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I use my Tangent Ripple with my DaVinci Resolve. It is not full-featured control surface but trackballs and buttons work properly and I precisely. I love the compact size and weight which make it suitable for use on location, not only in the studio setup.
