Experience a better way to work & create! Now with iPad control of Adobe Lightroom® with our new Lightroom Sorter!

Interfaces for Adobe Premiere®, and Final Cut Pro® makes editing fast & intuitive for all skill levels. Turn your iPad into a $3,000 control surface that has Gestures! Purchase consoles via our In-App Store.

*Now with greater compatibility for our international users!


“Worth buying an iPad just for this software if you are an editor ...the gesture control is fantastic... Will make a lot of editors very happy!”

"I have a superb physical Mackie work surface but CTRL+Console works so well I’m getting rid of it!"

“Best editing companion EVER!!!”

"Es increible como CTRL+ ha hecho mi flujo de edicion mas comodo y rapido...altamente recomenado!!"

"Schnell, zuverlässig, intuitiv. Tut genau was es soll und ist leicht zu bedienen"

Keyboards were designed for typing, not editing. CTRL+Console was designed from the ground up to make your creative work easier, bringing familiar tactile control into the modern world.

Buy only the consoles you want, and skip the ones you don't with our In-App Store. Each console is a controller for creative programs you already use but with more functionality than most $3,000 control surfaces.

Keep your eyes on your footage with our proprietary Gesture System for the most common editing and culling actions. Multitouch gestures can be done anywhere on the iPad for complete no-look functionality.

We are humans, not robots. Interfaces should be designed around our hands and the way we work. We've designed consoles that minimize strain and keep you editing comfortably all day long.

Gone are the days of working in just one program. CTRL+Console is designed for the modern creative working in multiple programs - all from a single, cohesive app.

Doesn’t work with IOS 8

I’m running iOS 8 on my iPad and OS X 10.9.5 on a MacBook Pro and ill be damned if i can get this to work, i handed it to the IT lads and all they said was computer says no. I really really want to like this app, i think it’s a brilliant concept but it simply doesn’t work. We can get it to connect but it just will not send actionable commands. The green bar appears across the top but when a soft key is pressed it briefly turns yellow and then back to green and thats it. you press the button, it recognises you pressed the button but nothing happens.

No longer works

This app was amazing! Really helped with video editing which I do professionally. Since the update though it does not work at all, will not connect to any of my macs and the troubleshooting page on the website is terrible. Basically just recommended to turn it off then on again... basically just chucked away £40... big help

I also have the app installed on another iPad used on another edit bay, that app hasn’t been updated and literally connects instantly.

For that price offer a trial version

I never paid the 28£, as there is no trial version. The entire point of in app purchases is that one can at least try a very basic feature to get a feel for it.
