Loupedeck CT Custom Profile Creator Released

Finally Loupedeck released the Custom Profile Creator for their Loupedeck CT console.

This software allows one to map the shortcuts of a software, such as Capture One Pro to buttons, knobs and dials on the Loupedeck CT. Unlike a full integration using an API, this requires the software (here "Capture One Pro") to make everything one wants to control with the Loupedeck CT available through keyboard shortcuts. However, I expect performance to be very good.

sounds interesting. It is much more compact than the Loupdeck+. But is it as intuitive?

I agree that the relatively small form factor is a big plus.

I think most of the controls will be intuitive to use as they are dynamically labelled. In any event, I think ergonomic efficiency for a proficient user is more important than intuitivness for beginners.

AFAIC, there is no doubt that it has better ergonomic properties.

Being smaller, one can have it next to one's normal keyboard -- which one still needs for entering text, for instance -- without large arm movements becoming necessary.
All of the buttons and dials are reachable by one hand -- the other will typically be occupied with the mouse or a tablet pen -- without too much hand movement. On these larger devices, you have to move the whole arm to reach all elements.
The centre dial is highly configurable, including a touch-sensitive centre portion that can adapt to whatever one wants to achieve at a given moment.

Many banks are available for the customisable buttons, so with a few button presses one can access a ton of functionality, in contrast to the limited, fixed functionality on a Loupedeck+, for instance.

If I could get a unit locally right now, I would.
