The Wave2 offers a comprehensive range of controls on a compact panel for a keen price.

Precise and portable

The Wave2 has been designed to offer maximum functionality for the minimum of desk space. This means it's equally at home on a desk or on-set. The panel features crisp, easy to read, ice-white OLED displays to label many of the controls which will be used to operate multiple functions. The trackerballs and knobs both use non-contact, high resolution optical pickups for responsiveness and long life. As all controls are designed to be context-sensitive you'll be able to keep your most needed controls at your fingertips. The Wave2 will increase your productivity, leaving you to get on with what you're best at doing - being creative!

Widely supported

Most of our software partners have released versions of their applications which support the Wave2. The majority of these applications also support the Tangent Mapper* which means that you can even customise your control layouts.


The Wave2 panel is expected to start shipping at the end of May 2018. Our reseller network should begin accepting pre-orders a few weeks before this date.
