Starting to research control surfaces to use with Color in the finishing suite. So far, the three setups in consideration are, in no particular order:
Option 1: JL Cooper Eclipse CX
Option 2: JL Cooper MCS-Spectrum
The MCS-Spectrum additionally requires the JL Cooper MCS-3000 Media Command Station W/ No Faders
Option 3: Tangent Devices CP200-K, available in black or silver
So right now I’m leaning towards the simplicity and elegance of the Tangent Devices CP200-K. But if cost is a factor (and when is it not if you’re spending your own money), take a close look at the Tangent Devices Wave and the Euphonix MC Color.
And if you’re looking for some good colorist literature, be sure to check out Steve Hullfish’s book The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction.
