USB Multimedia Controller

You can use PowerMate to edit home movies, or scroll through long documents, or create your next audio masterpiece. How can PowerMate be this cool? Because it's an assignable controller that you can program to do anything you want, in any application.

PowerMate functions beautifully as a convenient volume knob and mute button for music listening on your PC or Mac. But that's just the beginning of PowerMate's possibilities. Edit movies just like the pros with PowerMate functioning as your very own Jog/Shuttle wheel. PowerMate makes editing a breeze, anything from home movies to your next demo. It even comes preset to work with iMovie, FinalCut Pro and GarageBand, right out of the box!

But the real power of PowerMate is its programmable driver. You can quickly and easily program it to execute any Key Command, in any application. And if you're running Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard, there is software for you that supercharges your PowerMate.

New for OS 10.6 Users - PowerMate 3.0 software


Do everything your mouse can't.

Rewritten from the ground up to for Apple OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), PowerMate 3.0 takes the world's most versatile programmable controller and supercharges it. The biggest change moves control of PowerMate out of your System Preferences and into the Application folder. The software is still small and nimble; we've simply made it easier and more intuitive to build command sets for all your favorite applications, including:

  • iTunes
  • Final Cut Pro
  • GarageBand
  • Adobe Creative Suite (CS3, CS4)
  • Logic
  • ProTools

...and lots more.

So what's changed?

  • The addition of modifier keys to PowerMate's 6 core action; Shift, Command, Control and Option keys join in the fun to create more than 60 different triggering actions
  • Rewritten from the ground up in Cocoa to take advantage of your Mac's 64-bit architecture (it runs like blazes as a 32-bit application as well)
  • Easier management of multiple PowerMate controllers and multiple PowerMate configurations
  • New commands that allow you link PowerMate's signature blue glow to monitor and display info about your CPU's performance, audio levels, system volume and other information
  • A new, cleaner user interface
  • New Global commands and the ability to interact with core OS X applications like iTunes, Safari and Mail with a PowerMate-driven radial menu
  • A new way of organizing commands by application
  • Tighter AppleScript integration; PowerMate is now scriptable
  • In all, we've rewritten more than 21,000 lines of code (21,417 to be precise) to make PowerMate work even harder and drive your productivity through the roof.
