Tangent The Ripple Color Correction Panel Reviews

Works well !

First multi-trackball device I've used Definitely better than using keyboard and/or mouse for color grading can be used natively with DaVinci Resolve and CaptureOne Pro - works with FCPX if used with CommandPost - only thing to watch is the balls falling out if tipped upside down ( by design)

Good for the price

If you need something to do the absolute basics of colour grading this is for you. Particularly if you use more than one editor.

good overall. Knobs became sticky after a while

Had to use WD40 on the knobs to get them back to spinning properly.

For what it is: perfect

For $330, no, you will not get a carbon fiber gold-plated device with hundreds of programmable buttons, small form factor, and exceptional build quality. That's not going to happen. But you can get the Tangent Ripple, a practically designed, small form-factor, with the professional tools to take your color grading to the next level. You can adjust the sensitivity of the track balls using a useful app that you can download after your purchase. You can make multiple grade changes simultaneously. And, even though it's plastic, it is aesthetically pleasing to look at, which counts for something in my opinion. I'm an amateur color grader who has done work for the last 5 years using only a mouse. But I have an interest in improving and learning new things. After only a brief period of time with the Tangent Ripple, I realize this was the perfect choice. A low-priced way to drastically improve the speed and quality of my grades. If I enjoy it enough, maybe I'll upgrade to one of the 1k control surfaces. Right now, I don't know if I'm interested enough in grading to make that investment. This device is perfect for those who want to get a taste of what professional grading is, without having to drop thousands of dollars on a fancier control surfaces. It's perfectly functional, if a little limited with the programmable buttons. But hey, it works well, interfaces with all of the major editing and grading applications. If you want to learn more about grading, don't hesitate: go for it.

Really good panel !

I love it, My only problem is that Davinci wont let you control the offset wheel with it.

Will this work with magix vegas 15 or 16?
Asked by: Nicholas
Magix Vegas does not provide native support for any Tangent products. It is however possible to map keyboard shortcuts to all the controls on the panel. If the software package allows control of all parameters by keyboard shortcuts then the balls on the Ripple panel can be assigned to control these by using the Tangent Mapper tool.
