Since the Loupedeck’s reinvention of the Loupedeck into the Loupedeck+ the support for software besides Lightroom has been expanding nicely. At launch, it offered integration with Capture One and Aurora HDR. This was then extended to include Photoshop, as well as breaking into video editing with Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Now Loupedeck has announced a couple more software integrations, adding another video editor, Final Cut Pro, and taking the leap into audio with Adobe Audition.
Loupedeck says that adding Final Cut Pro and Adobe Audition integrations is “the next step in delivering an increasing level of functionality and flexibility the video and audio editing communities require”. They also say that customers have been eager to see Apple integration and that “Final Cut Pro X was the logical choice”.
Final Cut Pro users using Loupedeck+ will be able to:
- Utilize faster and more intuitive video editing and color correction; all basic tools for color grading are simply labelled on the console
- Total flexibility to create their own configurations to fit their workflow
- Export/import an editor’s personal Loupedeck configuration setups and easily transfer them to another computer
- Use Color Wheel workspace compatibility for color grading
- Leverage flexible timeline navigation, content trimming and clip adjustment
- Have the option to customize console buttons to preferred Final Cut Pro shortcut demands or use preinstalled functions
- Take advantage of 400+ additional functions available
Adobe Audition users using Loupedeck+ will be able to:
- Create a faster and more intuitive workflow
- Create analogous use with digital project
- Create and manage single track and multitrack projects
- Use more accurate track control and navigation
- Use all edit tools including trim and nudge
- Use volume adjustments for all channels
- Add Fades and Effects to projects
The integrations are available in all regions for Loupedeck+ owners, and if you don’t already own one, they’re available to buy now for $249.
Being able to use the same hardware to control either Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro along with After Effects, Photoshop and Audition certainly will be a nice boost to many editors out there using several of those applications in their workflow. Personally, I’m still holding out for DaVinci Resolve.
