    Contour Design NLE reviews

    Shuttle-Xpress NLE Multimedia Controller (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it should, well. I bought this to use under Linux (specifically with Kdenlive). There are a few hoops to jump through to get it working on Linux, but it only took me about 5 minutes to get it running. The shuttle-xpress has a great feel to it, the size fits well under my hand and moving between the buttons and wheels is fast. The base has little rubber feet and it stays put well on my desk without slipping. The spring-loaded jog wheel feels great, and the shuttle in the middle works smoothly. My only complaint is that my fingertip occasionally slips out of the indentation on the middle wheel, but only when I'm going really fast. Overall, a solid product at a very reasonable price.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from FAR from plug and play I purchased the shuttlexpress and a wacom intuous tablet the same day. Both worked as soon as they were plugged in. But, the wacom tablet took less than 15 minutes to customize for several apps (including adobe cc: photoshop, audition, premiere pro, as well as microsoft office: word, excel, and davinci resolve, and internet browser). After a week of trying to customize The shuttlexpress and trying all the resources on the contour website; i was still unable to convince the device to abandon its default settings for my own custom ones. The contour customer service was slow, their help forum was dated, and the website was unorganized and difficult to navigate (2016). I had to return the item immediately. Its sad because the potential work flow of a tablet and jog/shuttle would have been CRAZY fast if used for video/photo/music editing. So sad. Not recommended until Contour learns from companies like Wacom. And fyi Contour, its 2016, not 2006. Update your website and support page!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Controller for FCPX and Adobe Premiere CC I brought this product to speed up my editing in FCPX and Adobe Premiere CC. It works great right out of the box. Installing the software was a breeze. it allows me to edit more precisely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One versatile shuttle I originally wanted the full size Contour Design but decided I would do just as well with the 5 programable buttons and the same combo of jog wheel and spring loaded rotary control on the Shuttle Xpress. I got it for non linear video editing and discovered I could use it for DAW software and a long list of softwares and applications. The Xpress version compared to its larger model simply is smaller with less buttons to program tasks to. It works great and set up after a quick download of the easy to use driver. This design works well portably and on a office desktop. I would recommend this product and to purchase at B&H Photo to save money and to get thie Shuttle Xpress sooner than popular competitors.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A natural way to edit. I purchased this with the intent to use in Lightroom 5. I was going between this one and its big brother the Pro. I could think of different functions to assign to the Pro, but I'm very content with this ones simplicity of only 5 buttons. I edited about 4x faster than I used to and it felt natural in the process. I gave the review 4 stars because the product works exactly as described, I just wish the precision on the wheels allowed for more customization. Adjustments go in increments of 5 or 10 and I haven't found how to change that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice addition to the editing process 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat Tool! 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I really enjoy using this controller with Edius 6. It has a default setting for Edius, and many other NLE's, but it also allows you to configure the controls as you wish.I use this at work as a reporter and editor for a TV station. The controller gives you precise control over the timeline - the inner wheel offers a helpful frame-by-frame advance. I can also set in and out points easily. I prefer this controller compared to the Edius keyboard.Honestly, I'm surprised it only costs $ It's a good value.
