Loupedeck is now compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro CC

In June, Loupedeck launched an update to its editing console, including a physical redesign and added Capture One compatibility. Now, a big new software update aims to make the device attractive to an entirely new user group – the Loupedeck+ is now compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro CC, allowing for its use in video editing.

Configuration of the controls is customizable to adapt to your workflow, and configuration setups can be exported for sharing or use across multiple consoles. It is possible to create several LUTs (color lookup tables) for fast and efficient alteration of color and the system also supports flexible timeline navigation, content trimming and clip adjustment.

If Adobe Premier isn't your video editor of choice, you might still be able to use Loupedeck in the future, as the company says it will be rolling out mode video software integrations later this year.

Loupedeck chief Mikko Kesti said in a statement:

"Our mission is to keep on improving the editing workflow, so it's only fitting our next step is in the video editing space. Just like we developed the Loupedeck+ exclusively from community feedback, we felt it was imperative to listen to what our users had to say and make the device's functionality even more well-rounded, providing all the same editing functions that photographers have at their fingertips to videographers. Users can now count on Loupedeck+'s intuitive design and user-friendly approach to enhance their video editing quality and increase their output. Our ongoing partnership with Adobe made introducing these new capabilities with its Premiere Pro CC suite an easy decision."

Will it get support for any DAW? FL Studio, Cubase, Reaper etc.

seems like its more for color grading than editing.

Is it me that you can see this more as a photo (video) mixing tool than an editing tool?
When I heard of it for the first time I thought it was a tool for DJ's...

These types of hardware control surfaces integrated with software applications have existed for much, much longer in the audio and video editing worlds than in the photo world.

The fact that a control surface designed for a photo program is being ported for use with a video program is amusing, in that it is sort of the reverse of the history of these things. I hope that control dial works well as a video jog/shuttle.

A DJ wouldn't touch this...no horizontal cross-fader :)

@grayblanced but do you think it is possible to use it with a DAW application?

@Naveed I am not the most experienced in these matters, but for a DAW I would want something with longer vertical sliders with rec/mute/solo switches for each track. I mean the Loupedeck might work if it can be mapped, but it doesn't look a lot like the audio control surfaces I've seen for audio. I would not enjoy using those short wheels across the top, for audio I want long sliders.

thanks grayblanced, mate sliders have a problem with my workflow, whenever you switch tracks, until they are motorized they don't move back to initial positions for the other track. I generally prefer wheels and ideally without start, end stoppers.
I have recently got a midi keyboard that got some controls like these, but I would love to have one controller on my desk.
I wish if they could build some of these controls on a PC keyboard and then we don't have to buy separate interfaces for each of these multimedia apps.

Just as every other time Loupedeck is mentioned, it has to be said that 180 USD is way, way overpriced when you can get the Behringer X-touch Mini for 50 USD. I use the latter and it's absolutely brilliant.

Behringer is the bottom of the barrel in every product category. Its hardly realistic to use their pricing as a benchmark.

You don’t know anything about the Loupedeck. It is completely different from the Behringer. Really useful in LRand PS. It’s also used with resolve, although I have yet to test it.

$180 is the price of the old model. The Loupedeck+ is $229

I am not sure Calaverasgrande, all tests and comparisons are done between those two and no review I have seen or read has favored Loupedeck, even if ignoring price difference. Just search YouTube.

I haven't used either, but, if you know, please share what is stunningly different and better in Loupedeck.

Loupedeck is terrific using with LR CC. I wonder how it will integrate with Premiere or any complex video editing app - it’s buttons and sliders are geared towards LR.

Lumetri has a similar interface, I think it will work as well.

I wish they would make it fully compatible with LightRoom.6

The old Version of Loupedeck still is!

Well, it is indeed, but it's not so good as the new one.
And it's just a matter of software, it's not like they would have to invent/ produce a new specific LightRoom.6 model...

I asked them directly, if you do the same, maybe they change their mind and put the effort in.. in sorftware development things that seem trivial are often not.

PS: Since i am getting the new Z6 i sadly have to retire Lightroom 6, heading towards Capture One 11

I've just had a mail from Loupedeck saying that software V2.4 supports LR6. I have not tried it yet

@tomhongkong: Thank you, it's interesting.
I asked them directly 3 days ago, but I haven't got any answer yet.
According to their site, the newest model Loupedeck+ is compatible with LR6, but not completely: certain functions can't be used...

What does “post processing” mean to you? How do you define it?

You don’t know how to PP, or don’t want to?

What do you to with files from camera after shooting?

I am fine with Post processing. I am not a purist in that sense. Things need to be processed to get the picture. No issues there.

My own pictures are not worth the time. If I had a picture of something that "needed" post processing I would be looking for one of you or wherever I have it printed. There is a local print place that I have supported since they were a thought. But I don't print any of my own photos. Few of my photos are good to print. Can't imagine any that would need to be printed.
