Designed for Windows and Mac-based Pro Tools systems, Digidesign’s new Pro Tools Custom Keyboards ($105/Windows, $119/Mac) provide direct access to primary Pro Tools transport and editing functions. These keyboards use the same symbols and color coding system as the keyboards on the ICON D-Control surface 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. The Windows keyboard also supports a PS-2 connection for maximum compatibility. The Mac-based keyboard is based on the Apple Mac G5 Pro keyboard and has two USB ports and a 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.
