In case anyone else comes across this post, looking for a similar device, I managed to get a ShuttlePRO v2 off ebay for about £20. Using the link that Gale mentioned, I managed to (eventually - around 2 hours of playing) get the thing setup quite nicely. Here’s what I’ve set it to do:
and on the jog wheel:
Zoom in/Out on the outer ring
move left and right by increments on the inner wheel.
In order to set this up, I edited the ‘default’ setting in the .shuttlerc file which is installed following the instructions in the link above. Here are my new ‘default’ settings, if you want a shortcut to getting going with this thing copy and paste this as a replacement default:
K1 XK_5 # Noise Removal
K2 XK_space # Play/Stop
K3 XK_R # Record
K4 XK_Shift_L/D “r” XK_Shift_L/U # Append Record
K5 XK_Control_L/D “c” XK_Control_L/U # Copy
K6 XK_Control_L/D “v” XK_Control_L/U # Paste
K7 XK_2 # Amplify
K8 XK_Control_L/D “l” XK_Control_L/U # Overwrite with silence
K9 XK_Delete # Delete
K10 XK_Control_L/D “s” XK_Control_L/U # Save
K11 XK_Control_L/D XK_Shift_L/D “e” XK_Shift_L/U XK_Control_L/U # Export
K12 XK_3 # Bass/Treble
K13 XK_4 # Tempo
K14 XK_Control_L/D “z” XK_Control_L/U # Undo
K15 XK_Control_L/D XK_Shift_L/D “z” XK_Shift_L/U XK_Control_L/U # Redo
JL XK_Left # Zoom Out
JR XK_Right # Zoom In
S1 XK_Control_L/D “1” XK_Control_L/U # Step Forward
S-1 XK_Control_L/D “3” XK_Control_L/U # Step Backward
NB: I had to assign some arbitrary shortcuts to the keyboard shortcut menu in Audacity to make some of the effect windows pop up.
You can download my copy of Audacity_keys.xml and install this as a replacement to the standard shortcuts in Edit>Preferences>Keyboard. Other than the extra ones I’ve assigned, it’s standard.
You will note that the ShuttlePRO probably won’t be read by standard, in which case you need to start up shuttle in Terminal when you start up your system:
I will probably adjust my system to autostart that when I start my machine, but haven’t gotten around to it yet.
One final note: The shuttle pro will now be live for pretty much all applications with this setup, so it will enter these commands in other applications as well.
