Contour Design Inc. has released its Key Composer, a new keystroke macro creation and management functionality for its ShuttlePRO Version 2 multimedia jog/shuttle controller. Contour Design will be featuring the ShuttlePRO V.2 with Key Composer for Macintosh at this week’s MacWorld Expo (booth #1042), being held January 6 to 9, 2004, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
The ShuttlePRO V. 2 is preprogrammed to make editing fast and easy right out of the box for many leading audio and video applications, providing productivity for users across their entire production workflow. Supported Macintosh applications include Apple Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Express, Avid Express DV, Alias Wavefront Maya, Digidesign Pro Tools, Emagic Logic Audio, Macromedia Flash MX, MOTU Digital Performer, Steinberg Cubase SX and Nuendo, and many more. Through an intuitive control panel interface, the ShuttlePRO V. 2 is easily programmed to work with virtually any application. With Key Composer, Macintosh audio/video application users can now assign multiple keystroke combinations, or macros, to execute from a single button on the ShuttlePRO V.2. These macros can be executed either all at once or step by step.
Key Composer is built into Version 2.5 of the Macintosh driver for the ShuttlePRO V. 2, available via free download from the Contour Design Website (www.contourdesign.com); a version for Windows users is also available.
