I have a Loupedeck + / Loupedeck CT. Will it work with Capture One?
I was surprised that it is not possible to control color channels (Hue, Luminosity, Saturation) with Loupedeck + when working in Capture One. Do you plan to fix that in the nearest future?
Loupedeck + / Loupedeck CT is a popular editing console with dials and buttons. It is designed to streamline your workflow in post-production as Loupedeck + / Loupdeck CT literally replaces your keyboard and mouse, which allows being highly focused on the image being edited.
If you have any questions related to Loupedeck compatibility with Capture One, we suggest reaching out to Loupedeck support as the integration is wholly developed by their team.
It would be great if you cold somehow work with the makers of Loupedeck to help achieve a more fluid interaction between them and Capture One Pro.
Currently it's very underwhelming compared to the Loupedeck / LightRoom compatibility which is fantastic. I really would like to make Capture one my primary raw processor but will only be able to do this if it supports the tools I need to speed up my workflow.
I also use a Loupedeck CT and am disappointed by the lack of possible integration currently.
It is perfectly possible to set up controls where there are available keyboard shortcuts, but sadly, for some areas of Capture One , e.g. Colour Selector and Black and White controls, no keyboard shortcuts exist.
I have, as suggested above, approached Loupedeck support. They informed me that they do not currently have access to the Capture One API (Application Programming Interface), so only keyboard shortcut integration is possible. This seems strange as Capture One was offered as a bundle option with Loupedeck when I bought it.
I am a professional photographer and I love Capture One. I edit up to 1000 images on some days. I would like to make Capture One my main editing go-to and switch from Lightroom. However, I will not be prepared to invest in it if it doesn't have the Loupedeck functionality that makes Lightroom so efficient for my work flow.
Please could Capture One work with Loupedeck to resolve this issue and also widen the scope of keyboard shortcuts to make customisation of the interface more complete?

Hi Capture One,
I've decided to switch from Lightroom Classic to Capture One because of the quality and performance of the app compared to Lightroom based on my research. I've been using Adobe products for 16 years but since the subscription model started, the quality and performance of the apps have been going down. So, I bought Capture One Pro 20 yesterday, there's no going back.
Here's the thing, there are a lot of people like me that have been thinking about leaving Adobe subscription model for better alternative apps that perform better. Having Capture One fully integrated with LoupeDeck is a strong selling point to them.
I'm in branding and advertising not an app developer, and I don't know what it takes to make Caption One works well with LoupeDeck but I know that if you take advantage of this opportunity, we'll see more people switching to Capture One.
Want to quit paying Adobe, but am heavily entrenched with Lightroom and Photoshop BUT rely on Loupedeck+ for the brilliant interface
I've downloaded the freebie version of C1 for Nikon and I like what I see
You'll get me Capture One the day you can make the program work properly with Loupedeck+
Yes please! Give them the API or what is nes please!
The Controller One project looks awesome - but in what respects do you feel this has any advantages over Loupedeck+?
It seems like a lot of work to achieve the same objective?
And the material cost works out to be about the same as the Loupedeck+:
Bome MIDI Translator Pro € 59,- (incl. VAT)
+ Arturia Beatstep: € 90,- (incl. VAT)
Loupedeck+ = 239 €
Difference = € -90 in Arturia's/Bome's favour
So, a saving of €90 initially, but spending hours setting things up after purchase - is it really worth it?
Is the quality of the hardware THAT superior, or the customization options really worth it?
Can you do stuff with the Controller One set-up that Loupedeck can't?
Not trolling here, just want to get a clear picture of my options and pros/cons before going either way, so would appreciate if you could share some more real-world experience and why it might be worth it going for a MIDI controller instead of the Loupedeck.
You are absolutely right for asking that question and I agree with you along the lines.
I rolled into this project step by step because I'm interested in technical aspects and I had a spare MIDI controller at the time I was looking for possibilities.
(I also use this controller if I'm having a mad night and choose to make some noise with FruityLoops ;-) )
In my opinion Loupedeck feels like a toy compared to the Beatstep.
I understand both alternatives suffer from lag due to not having access to a solid API.
I am not sure what features are working on only one them.
To be honest I would not advise one of them against the other, I guess it depends on how much time you are willing to spend to get things working.
Apparently, C1 chose another horse than LoupeDeck (which by the way works to a certain extent, PROVIDED you have a QWERTY keybaord)
Look at this next video of C1: https://youtu.be/iBqlbOOdvxI
As of June/2021, it works ok. I don't know if it's written anywhere, but one has to use the C1 profile on Loupedeck, and Loupedeck profile on C1... Explaining: Loupedeck supplies both the C1 control layout for the Loupedeck console, and also provides the shortucuts profile for C1. On C1, go to Edit > Edit Keyboard Shortcuts > Set: Loupedeck Beta. Some settings may be outdated, and some were missing. But then, these can be worked out by adding a keyboard shortcut on C1, then applying that shortcut to a function on LD.
I was a bit annoyed by LD changing the tabs on C1, but seems that this problem disappeared after the first day.
Hey FirstName LastName!
LD changing tabs is absolutely killing me. I have my whole setup streamlined, and this tab jumping is not what I'm looking for. Curious if you did something to remove the tab changing?
Lol, just corrected my name to something better than "FirstName LastName"!
So, first thing, make sure you have installed the shortcuts profile for Loupedeck on C1 as stated on my previous post. If your LD is changing tabs, you need to search for the shortcuts "Next tool" and "Previous tool", and assign them to a shortcut that you are not using elsewhere. In my case, I assigned these shortcuts to Crtl-Alt-Left arrow and Ctrl-Alt-Right arrow. I realize that these shortcuts may be used by Windows for rotating the screen, but it's disabled on my computer. If you still have issues, just create any new shortcuts for "Next tool" and "Previous tool" using any combination of keys that C1 won't tell you it's being used elsewhere, or simply remove the shortcuts to these actions.
sorry, but working with shortcuts for LD is some kind of pain. please create an API for the Windows version like the one for Mac. Thanky!
I agree with the above, please create an API for the Windows version.
