user an advantage. Settings for the most popular editing applications are included, as well as many Internet and offi ce programs such as Microsoft Offi ce, Mozilla Firefox and many others. The ShuttlePRO v2 has fi fteen programmable buttons as well as an aluminum inner jog dial and spring loaded, rubberized shuttle wheel housed in a sleek, ergonomic design. Each button can not only be set to a different keyboard shortcut such as Control-S for Save in Windows or Command-P for Print on a Mac, but the Shuttle software can also create macros that perform many functions with the touch of one button, which is a ShuttlePRO v2 only functoin. For example, a user is editing a video and would like to save the project, switch to a new view, export the video to his hard drive, then upload a copy of the video to his YouTube account. This would require many menu pulldowns with the mouse or presses of the keyboard in a particular order and time. Contour Design’s software makes it easy to create one macro to do all of those things, one after another in the order of the user’s choosing. ShuttleXpress Contour Design’s other controller, the ShuttleXpress has most of the same functionality of its bigger sibling the ShuttlePRO v2, but in a compact, fi ve button design. Its smaller footprint makes it perfect for users who just need a jog dial and shuttle wheel and less buttons than the ShuttlePRO v2. Both Shuttle devices are a cost effective and space saving alternative to bulky control surfaces or clumsy multi-colored keyboards.
