Sometimes you just need more!


With a compact design you'd expect a compromise on ergonomics, features and controls. With the Element range, there is no compromise!


When you need an all-in-one control surface, the Wave2 has it all.


Getting in touch with your software has never been more affordable.


For a great introduction to Tangent Control Surfaces why not try out our Apps for iOS and Android.

A major support update for Tangent panels

We’re pleased to announce that version 1.7.0 of the Tangent Hub is available to download.

This latest release incorporates our new bundled plugins for Adobe Premiere Pro and Lightroom Classic plus support for Open Sound Control (OSC):

Adobe Premiere Pro 

  • Enhanced support for Premiere Pro – audio and effects can now be controlled.
  • Over 100 additional controls have been added.
  • We’re also hoping that Adobe will add further support for Lumetri in due course – we’ll keep you updated when we have further news.

Adobe Lightroom Classic 

  • This is the first time that Lightroom can be controlled from Tangent surfaces through an Adobe API. Default maps are included for Element, Wave2 and Ripple.

Open Sound Control

This is our first step to add comprehensive OSC support for our panels, allowing control of Unreal Engine, Disguise Media Server and any of the other many tools which support OSC. This release includes:

  • OSC messages sent on button presses and releases
  • OSC messages sent on Knob, Dial and 3-axis trackerball movements
  • Panels receive OSC messages to update their displays with Status Values, Bar Graphs or Text.

Details of this are included in the Mapper Manual but we’ve also produced an OSC Quick Start Guide to help you map panels controls to start sending OSC messages.

Brexit bumps - European shipping update

Shipments into the EU have had a bumpy start to the year, with long delays due to the new customs processes. However, we’re glad to say that the congestion finally seems to be easing and that we also have some alternative plans in place. All this means that shipping times on EU shipments should soon return to near normal – thanks for bearing with us folks!
