Innovation plays a crucial role in increasing productivity and growth in human lives. Just when we think an industry cannot progress more than it already has, another innovative idea changes the narrative. Similarly, TourBox, with the launch of its controller for content creators, makes the route toward evolving the content creation and editing industry.
Console for editing content
Content creation is difficult, but editing is even more so. TourBox is an attempt to make this process effective and comfortable. The product is an editing console that has few keys but many features. Compatible with prominent software like Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, and Premiere Pro, the device is specifically designed for photo and video editing and digital painting. It comes in two variants: NEO and Elite. Their design and layout are pretty much the same. However, the NEO version has a USB-C cable, and the Elite one has Bluetooth connectivity.
The TourBox NEO layout consists of three control dials that rotate and can also be clicked down like buttons. Then there are four large buttons: one on the left of the controller, one on the top center, and two on the lower right. Additionally, it has seven small buttons: one beside the center dial, circular C1 and C2 buttons on the right, and a four-way d-pad below.
To operate the controller, you have to plug it into your Windows or Mac device. Then download and install the console. Next, go to the Console and bind the keyboard shortcuts of the editing software to controller buttons, just like you do with a multi-button mouse. The device is highly customizable, so you can adjust the keys per your preferences and make different profiles for different editing software. TourBox NEO costs $169 if you only buy the controller and $179 if you buy it with its storage case.
The TourBox Elite is an upgraded version of NEO. The significant change is that Elite now has both cable and Bluetooth options, which some users had wished for in NEO. Moreover, this upgraded version has a new haptic feedback system that causes the controller to vibrate softly and makes soft-click sounds when using the dial, scroll wheel, and knob.
The rest of the functions and features are the same as the NEO version. TourBox Elite costs $268 without cable, $278 with cable, and $283 with storage. With storage and cable both, it costs $293.
