    Jog Shuttle: do these work?

    Any user feedbacks on these jogger devices? Do they work well with VT[3]??

    They seem to be user-programmable instead of pre-configured for specific applications. Let me know if it does worth the investment.

    Thanks!!

    I have ShuttlePro V.2 (that link is showing the first version - make sure you get V.2 - http://www.contourdesign.com/shuttlepro/ ) and it works great. It is pretty easy to setup and works very accurately.

    I also have Command Post and have never been able to get it to work at all. Stay away.

    A large selection of pre-configured softwares is listed, but no trace of anything Newtek. How easy is V2 to configure. Any possibility to save / export these settings, for later re-installs?

    Thing is there was supposed to be native Newtek VT[3] support for the Contour Shuttle Pro, but I've never seen it materialize.

    Some have written scripts and such, but I was hoping for a real Newtek designed set of drivers or scripts for it.

    At NAB this year I talked with Contour people, and even the engineer that designed the actual controller. They told me they would love to create presets for VT[3], but Newtek had never talked with them about it!

    Newtek likes doing things themselves...

    The word a while back was Aussie was working on it... what happened? As far as setting it up for VT3, there is a nice control panel where you can assign any button a keystroke or soon (maybe out already) a combination of keystrokes (macro like). I found the shuttle/jog response to be horrible and wrote some user scripts that worked better but still not great.

    The shuttle guy told me a custom driver is what is needed to really make it shine with VT3. To be honest, I hardly use mine as I'm pretty keyboard intensive with VTEdit and forget or don't bother to reach over and use it...
