Chapter in this post:
loud deck is the name of a control console for Adobe Lightroom, which is reminiscent of a mixer and big names like Palette Gear Wants to compete. You can pre-order Loupedeck since yesterday. What you should know about the market launch of the tool for image processing on iMac, Mac, MacBook and PC, I have summarized for you here. I would also like to show you alternatives to Loupedeck and / or Palette Gear. By the way: You will get details about Loupedeck, the financing via Indiegogo, the individual functions and so on in this first post on the topic.
Loupedeck can be pre-ordered on the manufacturer's website since yesterday, June 1st, 2017. The control unit for Lightroom cannot yet be bought on Amazon or eBay. What stands out positively when ordering: There are no shipping costs. What is (currently) a shame: you still have to wait for the delivery; because shipping is not expected to begin until July 17, 2017.
With the Loupedeck image or photo processing console for Adobe Lightroom, many frequently used settings of the program can be controlled directly. The knobs, dials and sliders can be used by default or individually assigned. The connection to Mac, MacBook and PC is established via USB 2.0. The guarantee is limited to 1 year.
As I said: at the moment the device is not yet available from Amazon or another general store, but only in the official online shop. If you want to buy Loupedeck later at a low price, then you have to wait a little longer. That will certainly only be possible in the second half of 2017 - but in time for Christmas;)
Loupedeck offers many different functions and can also be individually adapted to a certain extent. In return, the price of 369 euros is okay; Especially if you use Loupedeck for work and can therefore sell the console, write it off and add it to your prices. You pay a much higher price for the much touted Palette Gear Equipment. Here just two buttons, three knobs and two sliders cost 359,99 euros.
Much cheaper and, depending on the brand and model, you pay less than 50 euros for a MIDI controller, which you can assign and set individually with the appropriate software - also for Lightroom, Photoshop and software for video editing. Of course there is also information here in the blog to MIDI controllers for image and video processing.
Do you work in photography and post-production? How do you improve your workflow or are you just looking for the best method? Feel free to leave a comment and your opinion on the Loupedeck console!
