Daly City, CA (May 10, 2006)–Digidesign is pleased to announce that the new Pro Tools Custom Keyboards are now available. Designed for Windows and Mac-based Pro Tools systems, these affordable Digidesign Pro Tools Custom Keyboards let users work faster by providing direct access to primary Pro Tools transport and editing functions.
Pro Tools Custom Keyboards use the same symbols and color-coding system as the keyboards on the ICON D-Control worksurface surfaces while retaining all the conventional alphanumeric labels that appear on standard computer keyboards. Both the Windows and Mac keyboards provide plug-and-play USB connectivity and offer a fresh new look at a lower price than ever before. The Windows keyboard also supports a PS-2 connection for maximum compatibility.
– Text and icons for Pro Tools key commands in addition to standard alphanumeric keyboard lettering
– Windows-based keyboard comes with PS-2 connection cord and USB adapter for easy connection via either method
– Mac-based keyboard is based on the Apple Mac G5 Pro Keyboard, and has two USB ports and USB connection cord
All three versions of Pro Tools software share most of the same key commands. However, Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered users should be aware that some key commands are available in Pro Tools HD software only. The DV Toolkit 2 option for Pro Tools LE systems includes some of the key commands that are not normally available with Pro Tools LE software.
The MSRP of the Pro Tools Custom Keyboard is $119 for the Mac version, and $105 for the Windows version.
