Anyone here using the Loupedeck plus? It doesn't appear in the search.

I decided to treat myself for Christmas as I have totally given up on Affinity Photo and returned to Lightroom Classic and Photoshop 2021 and the Loupedeck is so customisable it is insane. I don't like making adjustments with a mouse and the plethora of knobs, buttons and rollers is amazing, allowing the finest adjustments in virtually all major photo and video programs.

Just interested in other's custom settings.

I had one for two weeks. While I like it I found using it slower on the whole than keyboard and mouse. For any and all standard editing its really great but I ended having to use my keyboard and mouse (especially mouse) more than I thought I'd need to. Also in my workflow I use a bunch of other software too even though LR is the main. I am used to using them all with keyboard with shortcuts and I am really dexterous with it. My muscle memory is just to used to keyboard and mouse. Ended up selling it.

I have one for over a year and I'm very pleased with it.
When I started I changed a few things, but not much.
So it's more or less 'native'.
There are all types of custom modes. I memorized the functions I often use (everything around sharpening for instance) but I have to admit I do not use the other custom modes often.

Particularly when I start with a new batch of photos the Loupedeck+ is a real improvement. You know the position of the buttons automatically. Turning knobs instead of moving sliders is so much easier and more precise. I love it.

As Anand, I use a lot of other software in my workflow. The loupedeck+ doesn't interfere much since I start with basic Lightroom adjustments.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Thank you both. Thatís encouraging to hear. Iím very much on the exploring phase at the moment, but I do like it as an enhancement to the overall processing.
