Tangent Wave2 Panel overview

  • 1Description

The Wave2 Panel from Tangent is a portable control surface that offers a quicker, more ergonomic workflow for color-correcting than working with a keyboard and mouse alone. With an ergonomic design that is even more compact than its predecessor the Wave, the Wave2 is suitable for desktop editing, and on-set use by DITs and colorists. Its three high-resolution, trackballs, and nine control knobs all feature non-contact optical pickups for responsiveness and durability.

Use the Wave2 to access color-correction tools in applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro CC (Lumetri), Assimilate SCRATCH, Baselight, DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro X, Lustre, LiveGrade Pro, and more. Most supported applications offer layout customization using the downloadable Tangent Mapper. A large LED panel displays the Wave2's knob and button commands in easy-to-read white type. The Wave2 Panel also features USB power and plug-and-play setup.

    Tangent Wave2 Panel reviews

    Wave2 Panel is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faster and better color adjustment in Capture One I was spending tremendous amounts of time on editing photos in Capture One. The Tangent Wave 2 has not only made editing much faster with the ability to quickly tune and readjust shadow, highlights, exposure, etc. It has also made possible adjustments that I would never have performed on a photo by photo basis. This is enabled through the color wheels and trackballs. For example, I can quickly bring details and the right amount of contrast in the shadow areas by lifting shadows with the shadow slider, reducing the shadow luminosity with the shadow color wheel. This may not make sense on paper, but I can tell you from experience, it works! And then you can also quickly fine tune the amount of cooling of shadows and warming of midtones and highlights with the trackballs. The degree of accuracy achievable with these trackballs is astounding. I can see why this interface is the tool of choice for pro colorist in video production. When time and money are at their peak, the best tools are needed. In this case, the price point is affordable, so that the enthusiast, such as myself, can experience the benefits. Highly Recommended! Complaints: Support Undo with buttons and Straightening with the wheels or knobs. Somehow Ctrl-Z undo acts a little funny and undo's more steps than I expect. And straightening must still be done manually. I also wish there was a way to refresh all the LCD numbers to reflect the currently viewed photo. The LCD displays the last photos settings or whenever the last time the control was touched. As a result, you might scroll to a photo and look at the LCD to see Exposure set to 1.4, but that was the setting of the previous photo you adjusted. Lightly touch the exposure knob and it will update to the current photos setting. This is certainly far from a deal breaker and just a minor annoyance. Perhaps this can be improved in the future.
