I use a Razer Arctosa which I was thinking of selling, but later changed my mind after thinking of using the macro capabilities for PT. I'm fairly new to PT and not very familiar with a lot of the keyboard shortcuts, so I was wondering if you have a gaming keyboard or know some essential/over used shortcuts that could be macro'd to one button to work quicker without having to try to remember the shortcut (eg: Ctrl+Shift+I to F1), what would you use and what empty keys would macro them to?
I remember buying a custom gaming keypad for Pro Tools specifically to have more macro ability - and I don't even think I ever plugged it in and set it up at all. I think it's still in the factory box sitting in a drawer somewhere.
I use a mouse with 5 buttons instead - works like a charm for me. And I have QuicKeys - so I either bring my QuicKeys to another gig outside my studio but 90% of the time I work out of my own studio. And if someone changes my mouse settings I get real mean!
