encoder wheels for EOS Nomad?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I work in a college theatre where we run Nomad. Currently, I've got two touch screens and a conventional qwerty keyboard and mouse. While this gets the job done, I'd like to achieve something that is A. more tactile in terms of physically interacting with the control surface and B. removes the need for me to repeatedly teach students a long list of syntax commands on a qwerty keyboard.

I've previously hired in a programming wing, which ticked both those boxes. However, purchasing one is out of budget. My plan at the moment is to instead purchase a High Output command_key for the buttons and a separate unit for encoder wheels; this last bit is where I need some advice:

What are the options? I've seen the space mouse - has anyone tried this out? I also vaguely recall seeing a thread on BR ages ago about a team of users who were developing their own OSC based unit for this exact purpose (maybe it was called light hack or something?), but I can't seem to find that thread. What else (if anything) is available?

Many many thanks
