    Contour Design NLE reviews

    Shuttle-Xpress NLE Multimedia Controller (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 87.
    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 issues with Vegas Pro 9 The Shuttle-Xpress DOES appear to have issues with Sony Vegas 9 and 10 on Windows 7, 64 bit, at least for some users (like me). I ordered after reading the reviews here, and, alas, it does not work (even after downloading updated driver and installing the shuttle xpress .pref file that is preinstalled on Vegas, as suggested here in another review by AVP). The Contourdesign forum has a thread (which unfortunately I discovered only after my purchase) that recognizes this as an issue and states that they are working on a fix, but as of Jan 2011, there is none. So if you plan to use it with Vegas on Windows 7, 64 bit, beware - you might get lucky and it will work, or, like for me and many others, it won't do squat.

    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 5 out of 5 by from Works like a dream in Windows 7 I am very pleased with this product, and my only regret is not buying this months ago. It has been a real time saver in my video editing, but I was really surprised buy how well it works with all the programs in Adobe Production Collection, not just Premiere and After Effects. I am running windows 7 64-bit, and have had no issues. Just download the most up to date drivers from the website and didn't bother using the driver disk that is included. I don't know if the program interface has changed because I found it very easy to program the buttons for additional programs, where other review said they were having problems. The Construction is solid, doesn't feel cheep, and fits my hand wonderfully.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must-Have for Every Video Editor! I got this almost a year ago and I love it. Words cannot describe the difference that this makes in my video editing. I can edit 2x faster using this device. I use this with Premiere Pro and After Effects, and it works great with both of the programs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good with lightworks I've set it up to use with Lightworks (search the Lightworks forum for guidelines) and it works good. It makes it much easier than trying to remember what keyboard keys do what and the wheel helps make it easier to move around in your video clips. For the price this thing is great. It is thin and light but feels solidly built. The configuration program is easy to use. It took some time to set up since you need to assign keys in Lightworks to some actions and find the keys for other so I could assign everything to do what I wanted. It was all easy to do, it just took some time.

    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.
