How does Palette connect to my computer?
Palette connects via a standard USB cable with the core module. At the moment, wireless connectivity is not supported but possible for future versions.
See Connecting Palette for more information
How many modules can I have?
Up to 18 modules can be supported with one Core module. As you approach 18 modules, it's normal for the LED halos around each module to decrease in brightness – this is how Palette conserves the power supplied to it over USB.
What can the dials do?
Dials give you precise control and offer a secondary function when pressed. This function varies on the chosen application and function.
In Lightroom Classic: Pressing the dial will reset development functions to their default value (ex: return Exposure to 0). For library module functions like selecting ratings, tags, and flags, pressing the dial will move you to the next image
In Premiere Pro CC: Press and turn the dial to increase sensitivity for basic editing and motion adjustments. Press the dial to reset Lumetri color adjustments to their default.
In Photoshop CC and other Adobe CC apps: Press and turn the dial to increase sensitivity.
In other modes: The dial press can be mapped independently from dial turns in Keyboard, MIDI, and Joystick modes. For example, a dial turn can be assigned to a MIDI CC value while the dial press will send a MIDI note.
If the sliders aren't motorized, how do they reset their positions when you edit multiple photos in Lightroom?
When you navigate to a new photo, the position of the sliders on Lightroom user interface won't be affected at all until you move the physical slider.
Are you going to offer other types of hardware modules?
Yes, we are developing new prototypes. If have any suggestions for future modules, please let us know at email@example.com.
Why does my Palette seem to go to sleep after a few seconds?
By design, the Palette core screen will stop displaying after 20 seconds to prevent image retention. Palette will stay responsive while the screen is asleep; using a module will still apply the assigned function instantly and will also wake up the screen.
