ADR Master 3 - Knowledge Base

ADR Master and Contour Shuttle Pro


Shortcuts can be controlled well by third party devices like the Contour ShuttlePRO v2 - which is a freely programmable and thus very versatile but also affordable multi-button controller. This makes it a great companion to ADR Master. To set up the device, download the drivers and setup application (scroll down to Contour Shuttle and pick the right version for your version of macOS).

The ShuttlePRO works on a per application basis. It detects which application is currently in the foreground and then executes the commands programmed in the setup application for this particular application. So as an example: if Pro Tools® is the current foreground application and you press a button, it will execute the command you programmed for the application Pro Tools® for this particular button in the setup application. You could for example execute the key command press Cmd + 7 to select the Smart Tool in Pro Tools® whenever the button 11 on the ShuttlePRO is pressed and Pro Tools® is the foreground application.

We have provided 2 basic pre-configured settings files (one for Pro Tools® and one for ADR Master), which can be downloaded here.

After downloading the files, open the Shuttle settings app and import the two files one by one using the gear button at the bottom left and then picking Import Settings.

The following buttons will be mapped to after importing the settings file:
