Monogram has announced that you can now control Final Cut Pro through their range of modular control surfaces.
A few years ago, we featured the Kickstarter funded modular Palette range of controllers that interfaced with FCPX. These have been superseded by the Monogram Creative Console, a range of modular controllers that includes the Orbiter which has a pressure sensitive disc in the middle of a control ring. (Start your engines colourists!)
This modular range of controllers can now interface to FCP using Command Post. There's also an app that gives you a one-to-one layout of your modules that dynamically updates if you add or remove modules.
You can assign the controls as you wish. If you want to do a lot of reframing, the knobs can be assigned to tweak the media size and position without having to dive into the Inspector.
The modules start at $399 for a set, individual panels range from $99 to $149 and are all available on the Monogram store.
About the integration:
- Monogram worked directly with CommandPost to add incredible functionality between Monograms modular control surface and Final Cut Pro (FCP)
- The FCP integration with Monogram via CommandPost makes color grading significantly more precise and productive than with a mouse and keyboard
- The integration lets you stay focused on your work in FCP without the distraction of on-screen controls
- FCP joins Monogram's other key integrations for creative workflows like Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Lightroom Classic, Capture One, Adobe Audition, and Unreal Engine.
- Monogram Consoles make working with creative software more engaging and productive. They’re perfectly suited for photo/video editing, color grading, music production, virtual production and more.
- Monogram’s control surface is unique because it has modules you can connect together in any way, shape or form to fit your workflow and your workspace. You can add more or less depending what you need them for.
- The Orbiter module is one of a kind. The pressure sensitive disc in the middle paired with the outside infinite encoder ring makes for incredibly precise adjustments in tasks like color grading or tonal adjustments a breeze
- It can easily shave hours off of editing time, plus with the physical controls it helps you stay focused on your work instead of looking at software UI like adjustment panels.
We’ve worked with the Adobe team, Capture One team and Final Cut Pro team to create fantastic integrations with the most popular creative applications used by professionals
