New Music Gear Monday: Editor Keys Backlit PC Keyboards
Music and a dimly lit room go together but it's not always the best thing for your eyes, especially when you're trying to type DAW commands in as fast as you can.
Editor Keys has now introduced a line of dedicated backlit keyboards designed to get you typing those commands up to 40% faster than before.
Since 2005 the company has been a leader in dedicated DAW and video editing keyboards, but these new backlit models are just the thing we all could use at least some time during the course of a project.
Editors Keys actually did a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project (which raised its funding last year) and I've included the video that the explains the keyboard and project below.
The dedicated backlit Pro Tools keyboard is available for around $120, while other versions are available for Cubase, Ableton Live, Presonus Studio One, Reason, and Sonar at slightly higher prices. There's also a version for Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premier and Photoshop, and Sony Vegas Pro.
