Key Highlights

The Tangent Ripple Color Grading Panel is designed for the occasional colorist, editor, or student, providing (3) essential trackballs that speed up primary grading. The Ripple’s small footprint ensures it will sit comfortably beside your keyboard and mouse, out of the way when not in use. 


All internal components have been carefully chosen for reliability. Trackballs and dials have optical pickups, which means they are long-life and high precision.

Extensive Support

Most of Tangent’s software partners have released versions of their applications which support the Element panels, and therefore also support the Ripple. Some have even created custom, alternative mappings for the Ripple, itself. Please check Tangent’s Application Support page (tab) for further details. When the Ripple is used with the Tangent Mapper* the user can  customize the layout of the controls.

*NOTE: Visit Tangent’s Application Support page (tab) to verify that your application supports the Tangent Mapper.


You can also use the Ripple with the other panels from the Element range (sold separately), including the Element-Vs tablet app (not included), to easily expand its functionality.
