The Wave2 offers a comprehensive range of controls on a compact panel for a keen price.

 

Precise and portable

The Wave2 has been designed to offer maximum functionality for the minimum of desk space. This means it's equally at home on a desk or on-set. The panel features crisp, easy to read, ice-white OLED displays to label many of the controls which will be used to operate multiple functions. The trackerballs and knobs both use non-contact, high resolution optical pickups for responsiveness and long life. As all controls are designed to be context-sensitive you'll be able to keep your most needed controls at your fingertips. The Wave2 will increase your productivity, leaving you to get on with what you're best at doing - being creative!

 

Widely Support

Most of our software partners have released versions of their applications which support the Wave2. The majority of these applications also support the Tangent Mapper* which means that you can even customise your control layouts.

With today’s multi-purposing work stations, where desk space is at a premium, having a fully featured panel that is compact, fully featured and stylish enough to match its surroundings is a must. But, you’d expect that having a compact design means having to compromise ergonomics, features and control size. With the Element range, there is no compromise! Despite their small desk foot print, each Element offers full size controls which are ergonomically laid out, and best of all, there’s lots of them!

 

Intuitive

When it comes to having lots of controls, one of the problems can be "just what does each control do?" This isn't the case with Element; every programmable control is clearly labelled, so if the function of the control changes, so does its display label – no more having to refer back to reference notes or on screen help. When the Elements are used with the Tangent Mapper* you can even customise the layout of the controls.

 

Function and Style

Apart from the size, the first thing you will notice about Element is the stylish, ultra slim design. Quality comes in the form of a solid aluminium, precision laser cut case. But it doesn’t end there; all the internal components have been carefully chosen for reliability. All rotary controls and trackerballs have optical pickups, which means they are long-life and high precision.The buttons are ultra-reliable with a positive tactile response. The displays are crisp, high-contrast, high-resolution, easy to read, white OLEDs. When put side by side the panels magnetically lock together, keeping the layout neatly aligned.

 

Cost Effective

You would have thought that all this comes with a high price tag - not so with Element! Each Element is competitively priced, and because it’s modular in design you can pick and choose which components you need, targeting your funds where they’re needed most. And if your budget allows it, you can even add more of the same panel type to build your ultimate control surface.

 

Extensive Support

Most of our software partners have released versions of their applications which support the Element panels. Please check the Application Support tab for further details. If you intend to purchase only certain panels from the set, or if you intend you purchase more than one of any panel, then you should check that your software supports this option.

Ripple is our entry level panel with a price-tag to match.


Designed for the occasional colourist, editor, and student, Ripple provides the essential 3 trackerballs that speed up primary grading. Its small desk foot-print means it will sit comfortably beside your keyboard and mouse, and it won't get in the way when you're not using it.


Reliability

You might think that we've cut corners with the components used on this entry level panel. Not so; all the internal components have been carefully chosen for reliability. The trackerballs and dials all have optical pickups, which means they are long-life and high precision.

 

Extensive Support

Most of our software partners have released versions of their applications which support the Element panels which means that they also support the Ripple. Some have even created custom, alternative mappings for the Ripple itself. Please check the Application Support tab for further details. When the Ripple is used with the Tangent Mapper* you can even customise the layout of the controls.

Not everyone has the luxury of a dedicated grading suite, but when you do, and you want a control surface that makes a statement to your clients, then Arc is the panel to choose. But Arc has more than impressive looks; it has the controls, features, and ergonomics to match, allowing your skills to shine through and for you to make your own statement.

 


Intuitive

Arc takes its name from the way the panel sections sweep round in an "arc" in front of you, putting its many controls at your fingertips. The two outer sections can be swapped over to suite your handedness. When it comes to having lots of controls, one of the problems can be "just what does each control do?" This isn't the case with Arc; every programmable control is clearly labelled with its own display, so if the function of the control changes, so does its display label. And with every control having its own label you won't be left searching around in a darkened suite for the one you want; the display guides you to it. When Arc is used with the Tangent Mapper* you can even customise the layout of the controls.

*see the Application Support tab to see if your application supports the Tangent Mapper.

 

Precision and quality

Made in three sections, each section is precision machined from a solid aluminium block, making for an incredibly strong, and unbelievably thin profile. All rotary controls and trackerballs have optical pickups, which means they are long-life and high precision.The buttons are ultra-reliable with a positive tactile response. The displays are crisp, high-contrast, high-resolution, easy to read, dimmable, white OLEDs. The tablet tray at the front can be swapped out to allow for "no tablet", or to keep up to date with changing tablet technology*
 

*tablet not included. Tray for Wacom Intuos Pro medium included, others options can be made to order.
 

Flexible support

Any application that supports the Tangent Mapper will already support the Arc panel. For some applications default control maps have been provided by the application manufacturer. Where no default control map is provided, it's easy to make your own with the Mapper. Please check the Application Support tab for further details.
