…but not just ANY palette.

Look, I know it’s only 13 days until Christmas, but if you tell your family TODAY, that you MUST have this…and that you really DIDN’T need that sweater…I’m sure they’ll understand (are you listening honey?).

The Palette is made for “creatives”…so photo editors, video editors, audio editors…Hey wait!…that’s voice-actors! 

You start with a “core” module that connects to your computer via USB.  The other elements (mix ‘n’ match!) come in the form of a slider, a button, or a dial.  As their site says:  “Assign multiple functions to any module. Switch between profiles & modify functions instantly, without ever leaving your workflow.”

Arrange the modules in any physical configuration that suits your editing habits.  Set up the functions with attending software, works with Windows or Mac, and most seamlessly works with Adobe products…so Adobe Audition fer shure.

As an example, Palette Gear includes a “starter kid” 1 core, 2 buttons, 1 dial, and 1 slider for $$199.

An “expert kit” includes 1 core, 2 buttons, 3 dials, and 2 sliders for $299.

I know.  Not cheap.

As an alternative, you might wanna consider the Shuttle Pro v2 by CountourDesign.com.  $99.  I use this now, and it has been a time-saver.  Easy setup…lots of keys to assign to almost any kind of function.

Now just hope you’ve been nice, not naughty!

    Thanks Dave,

    I’m gonna give a Pallette a try.

    We spoke last summer just before my fully set bedroom studio for VO went up in flames while I was at work… Faulty wiring in home and I was renting a room so… Adios Las Vegas… Back in Portland, OR and starting over in moms garage… Almost dialed back in… I’m using Tracktor DJ for my soundscapes. I use a Xone midi-sub-mixer from Allen and Heath to control Tracktor beats, loops, etc and it allows my mic as an input so I have ultra live mixdown capabilities… It takes midi in and out so I can link my Yamaha keyboard for overlays as well… Since its usb to my laptop… It records on the fly as a waveform… It beats multitraking and you have the ability to split it Amongst DAW software simultaneously. Average new and used is $100.00… All this being said… I’d really just like to use an android tablet, my studio mic and proper internet connection to start my VO demos… What bundle of android apps for tablet do you recommend? 1 for recording like audition… 1 for multitracking and 1 for AV mix down so I can give a visual dialog with my voice… Thanks a million…
