Today, the team at Loupedeck announced the Loupedeck Live, a brand new tool for streamers and content creators aimed at streamlining the creative process and taking their production quality to the next level.
Like the Loupedeck CT, the Loupedeck Live is an input device that aims to speed up the production process and put powerful and customizable controls right at your fingertips. The Loupedeck Live has been trimmed down from the CT to give it a smaller footprint, easily placed alongside your keyboard and mouse, while still delivering exceptional functionality.
As an input device, the Loupedeck Live features 12 buttons on its central display, flanked by two columns of touch screen inputs. There are six knobs, which can be assigned to different parameters depending on your program, and a row of seven buttons on the button for further command inputs. On its face, it is reminiscent of the Elgato StreamDeck, but the utility far exceeds what the StreamDeck can currently offer.
The Loupedeck Live’s trump card is its native integration with a wide array of streaming and creative programs. Out of the box, it comes with customizable profiles for each of these heavy hitters:
- Adobe Lightroom Classic
- Adobe Photoshop CC
- Adobe Premiere Pro CC
- Final Cut Pro X
- Adobe Illustrator
- Adobe Audition
- Adobe After Effects
Loading up any of these programs will cause the Loupedeck to intelligently shift profile, putting the most used commands and controls at your fingertips. You can also create your own shortcuts and profiles to create an experience that is tailored to your own workflow.
The Loupedeck Live appears ready to deliver an out-of-the-box experience that to take you from streaming and capturing footage right into editing a polished final product. If you’ve gone through that process, you know how time consuming it can be, so a product of this kind has real value to produce more, and better, content faster than ever before.
The Loupedeck Live is available now for $269.
