Using ON1 Photo RAW with Loupedeck

In ON1 Photo RAW 2021.5 (a free update we have coming soon) you will be able to set up Loupedeck to use in your Photo RAW editing. Loupedeck creates custom editing consoles for photo, video, and audio editing and design. I will supply you with my template and how I would use the controls, but it’s super easy to set up any way you want. Here is the link to download my profile.

Version 2021 is a big release! Read about every feature we released in version 2021 and 2021.1.

    Can’t wait to get it in my hands, and onto my Loupdeck CT

      We are working with them to get profiles set-up. We will also provide the one I created and tested with as a starting point as well, via a KB in our support section.

        Hi Dan do you have a rough date when the profile for loupedeckCT or a link where to download yours, it seems to cover most things anyway?

        Hi Dan, it would be great if you could share the profile you use currently. Can you share a link to yours, I can’t seem to find it. Many thanks

        I have some problems to get my loupedeck running with On1.
        What is a KB and where in the support section can I find your profiles?
        Thank you very much for your help

        I downloaded and extracted the zip file from the link provided, but the Loupedeck CT software does not recognize the files as valid file types for importing. This is on MacOS. Any tips?

    I don’t see what this has to do with ON1…

      Previous version of “ON1” didn’t support the Loupdeck, it’s a demo of new functionality.

    2. On April 20, 2021 at 4:54 pm Alan Williams replied:

      I agree. ON1’s keyboard shortcuts work just fine. Fast even.

    @Hans, tool like Loupedeck is much faster than mousing about. If you are working on volumes of images, saves a lot of time. Looks like a nice implementation.

      It looks great but at the price, it’s only for pros or people who have $500 to spare. Don’t forget that it’s a hobby for many people and spending money on a hobby can always be justified hahaha.

    Hi Dan
    That’s great news to use Loupedeck with ON1 in the coming release!

    I love this idea. Which Loupedeck(s) will be compatible with On1?

    Loupedeck is pretty expensive. Does Midi2LR work with on1 2021.5?

    1. On April 20, 2021 at 4:04 am Christian Nielebock replied:

      I don’t think so and it seems that they don’t plan to support it.
      I would also love to use existing MIDI controllers to control ON1.

      1. On April 26, 2021 at 2:20 am Ole Senstius replied:

        I am using a Behringer x-touch mini and midi2lr with lightroom. Superb! Much much faster and precice. Probably upgrading to X-touch compact. The motorfaders makes it possible to se your previous adjustments ifølge you returnere to the picture.and still much cheaper transport a Loupedeck.

      2. On April 29, 2021 at 1:45 pm Ole Senstius replied:

        It seems as if loupedeck actualy is a midicontroler. On1 raw wil probably work in a combination of any relevant midicontroler and a midi to key converter. There is actualy 3 or 4 god converters. The only disadvantage is Thatcher you’ll have to set up the software yourself. On the otter hand you can use quiltet a lot of controlers from 50 bugs and up.

    Will the update only work with Loupedeck CT or also with Loupedeck+?

    is this loupedeck specific or can it be done with any key replacement unit that can use shortcut key assignment , such as the shuttlepro v2 , which i have 🙂

    Great addition to the capabilities. Like Aaron, I’m curious which of the Loupedeck models will it work with.

    Absolutely fantastic! I’m assuming it’ll work with loupedeck+?

    Thank you, this was a great, to-the-point demo of just what I was hoping the big Loupedeck would do in ON1! To me, it’s key that the physical knobs remain “hard-linked” to the programmed ON1 controls, as shown with exposure within the glow-filter display; the user can keep whatever edit panel open and not lose their place, while still adjusting other parameters, especially the basics.

    I would love to see another video showing more-advanced applications like this, perhaps how to hard-link a knob to a slider, to allow multiple filter adjustments from one panel. E.g. set it up to allow adjustment of transparency / effect level for the last 3+ filters applied, so one doesn’t have to bounce between those filter panels.

    Meanwhile… can we arrange a bulk discount on that control for ON1 users? 🙂

    This is great! Is it just Loupdeck or pretty much any external controller? (ex. Stream Deck, Tourbox, etc.)

    So it supports a $549 device, I am kind of underwhelmed. This update is really not much of an update so far. Usually I am an ardent supporter of On1 and do use it, and enjoy a lot of aspects. But this update seems very meh to me, just my opinion.

      I think it’s pretty cool that On1 is working to be compatible with another party’s device that will allow more speed of workflow, sorting, and final editing of images. Kind of excited to try adjusting sliders with a dial rather than grabbing it with a mouse. And having the shortcuts that need multiple keystroke combinations be reduced to one button. I wonder if you can adjust the brush size with a dial as well? Talk about a pain with the mouse. This device, as many like them can be used across several different applications such as video editors, audio editors as well as the entire Adobe armada. (Eeek the evil Empire) I’m not sure if On1 gave permissions to the API coding to marry the connection to the software, but it seems like a good idea from the marketing stand point to provide greater flexibility to the end user .

    The video appears to show a Loupedeck CT. However, the Loupedeck website also shows a lower priced Loupedeck +. Can either be used and what’s the difference?

      The older Loupedeck+ does not work at this time. The newer Live and CT models do, however.

    Will the same apply to LoupeDeck Live, which is considerably cheaper, yet seens to offer many of the same functions in a more compact package????

    Hi Dan,

    It’s fun to know about this addition to Photo Raw. Will Touch Portal work as well?

    Will a Loupedeck Live work as just the top half of this?

    It looks like it has a lot of promise, though that first gating example is silly, there’s no way that was easier than keeping a hand on the keyboard for that.

    I use a $99 Contour Shuttle Pro with 15 programmable buttons, a shuttle wheel and a jog wheel. Works great! Originally designed to work with video but has multiple application profiles and its easy to assign whatever keystroke functions you want to. Very worthwhile and highly recommended.

    Do you have an eta for loupedeck+ support? Working with loupedeck in lightroom is smooth as butter, and I’d really love for it to work with ON1!

    I can’t wait to be able to use my midi controlller with On1. Any future update for this?

    It’s all actually pretty easy to use a MIDI-controller like X-touch mini (most used it seems) or a more advanced like the X-Touch Compact (motorized sliders)
    The key to make it work is:
    1. MIDI Controller
    2. Software to convert MIDI to keystrokes etc. (Bome is the most advanced but there are others more simple)
    3. The new expanded keyboard shortcutlayout i ON1 2021.5
    4. Some patience setting up the software.

    BUT! Almost anything seems to be possible. You can set up the controller to match exactly the workflow you like the most. You can even create different setups that match different situations. AND You can make the controller work with plugins, other photo, video, DAW software.
    As most of us actually uses more than one program for ex. photo editing and often jumps from one program or plugin to another to get the best, a MIDI controller not only makes the workflow much much faster it also provide us with a better overview.
    This link shows the use of midi2lr and MIDI controllers in Lightroom. But the methods are the same using ex. Bome

    @Dan – wrong files linked up top?

    The files linked up top appear to be (named) for the competitor’s product, the Elgato StreamDeck – didn’t you mean to link to the Loupedeck files? That’s why the ZIP linked above doesn’t work on the latter, they’re completely different devices. Dan’s file appears to be well-named, though, containing the word “streamdeck” and not “loupedeck”.

    It looks like Chay’s link is for the correct files – thanks @Chay!

    I have since tried ON1 with the Loupedeck CT, it’s quite promising. However, is there a key combo for “reset knob” for the relevant sliders, or at least current and/or last-active slider, equivalent to double-clicking a knob? I didn’t immediately see a way to do this, like ON1 needs to expand the keystroke shortcuts a bit more to include a reset keystroke. This is kind of a critical feature to allow external editors with knobs like the Loupedeck to be easy to work with, given their implementation as repeat key clicks – undoing 50 key commands is rather painful.
