macOS: Setting up Loupedeck LIVE, LIVE S and Loupedeck CT with Capture One

Tutorial for setting up Capture One 21 (or older versions) for macOS.

Download Loupedeck Software: Click here (opens a new tab to the download page).

macOS & Capture One 21 (or most recent)

  1. Verify Loupedeck permissions in macOS: Instructions here (opens in a new window).
  2. Launch Capture One
  3. Open Edit menu
  4. Select 'Edit Keyboard Shortcuts'
  5. At the top: open the 'Set' drop-down menu. Select "Loupedeck Default" as your shortcut set.

Note! If the shortcut file cannot be found, then you need to grant access rights (to your own macOS user profile) to be able to make changes to that folder - and re-install Loupedeck software after the permission have been granted. See instructions (Apple support).

Only for Capture One 21 or newer: You can use other shortcut files instead of "Loupedeck Default" - They might not cover all the functions needed and you will get a warning sign in the Loupedeck Software about incorrect shortcut file.
