Cheap CC panel

Colour correction tools are a legendary hassle – the problem is we are in constant need of physical hardware, not mere software, and that hardware tends to be amazingly expensive. Lower end hardware tends to go for around $1 000 or more, while the more expensive types such as the DaVinci Resolve control surface is more like $30 000.
The Tangent Ripple seems to be trying to change that, coming in at an expected price of $350. This clearly makes it one of the least expensive colour correction hardware ever, while it also keeps many features of more expensive hardware:
● 3 trackerballs with dials for masters.
● High resolution optical pick-ups for the balls and dials.
● Independent reset buttons for the balls and dials.
● Programmable A and B buttons.
● USB powered with integral cable.
● Light-weight compact size.
The Tangent Ripple, which is due for release in early 2016, is also extremely compact – while many colour correction tools basically take up your entire desk, the Tangent Ripple is easily stashed away on the side of your desk when you don’t need it.
