Euphonix MC Color & Tangent Wave Side by Side

COW Blogs : walter biscardi's Blog : Euphonix MC Color & Tangent Wave Side by Side
Well I spent the weekend playing with the Euphonix MC Color for a Creative Cow review. Nice of those folks to send it along for testing. It is amazing how much easier Apple Color is to operate once you attach a control surface, whether it be the Cooper Eclipse, Tangent Wave or the MC Color.

For the testing I brought in amazing colorist Ron Anderson (30 years experience!) who also helped out with my Tangent Wave Review for the Creative Cow. He uses the JL Cooper Eclipse in his own studio and also operates daVinci and Scratch for CineFilm here in Atlanta.

For those of you wondering what the physical difference is between the MC Color and Tangent Wave, well here you go.

The MC Color is only 9 1/4" from top to bottom while the Wave is about 16" from top to bottom. So the Wave has extra area to rest your wrist which is pretty nice when doing a long session. They're both about the same width and both fit very nicely onto just about any editing console. Here they're sitting side by side on the keyboard shelf of the Anthro Fit Console in my JungleLand suite.

The primary physical differences are:

MC Color: 9 Soft Keys.
Wave: 9

MC Color: 6 Soft Knobs
Wave: 9

MC Color: 6 OLED Displays
Wave: 9

MC Color: Shuttle / Jog controlled by right Trackwheel.
Wave: Dedicated Shuttle / Jog

MC Color: Ring Trackwheels for Luma adjust.
Wave: Spin Trackwheels above for Luma Adjust.

MC Color: Ethernet connection / AC Power Supply
Wave: USB Connectivity and power.

Both are welcome additions to any Apple Color suite and the choice as to which one you want will be completely up to you. You can't go wrong with either and NAB is approaching quickly which is a great place to get some hands on experience with them.

were researching both models, has there been any updates to software compatibility?
were gearing for Resolve 8 and REDCineX but wondering if new apps will be supported.

Professional Video Editor, Producer, Creative Director, Director since 1990.

Credits include multiple Emmys, Tellys, Aurora and CableAce Awards.

Creative Director for Georgia-Pacific and GP Studios, Atlanta. Former Owner / Operator of Biscardi Creative Media. The show you knew us best for was "Good Eats" on the Food Network. I developed the HD Post workflow and we also created all the animations for the series.

Favorite pastime is cooking with pizza on the grill one of my specialties. Each Christmas Eve we serve the Feast of the Seven Fishes, a traditional Italian seafood meal with approx. 30 items on the menu.

If I wasn't in video production I would either own a restaurant or a movie theater.
