  • USB plug-and-play, no software is required. Full functionality is enabled through your Mac OS X system settings.
  • Keys are color-coded and grouped by functionality for quick and ergonomic access.
  • Specific functions have been carefully selected to be the most useful and reflect years of real world production at DNA Music Labs.
  • Shortcuts are optimized to cover a major areas of functioning in Pro Tools including:editing, selecting, nudging, windows and layout,  zooming, file menu functions, track and playlist, MIDI composition.
  • Compatible with all versions of Pro Tools 9 on Mac OS. (Pro Tools 8 is supported except for two shortcuts).

One thought on “Hotkey Matrix Music Controller

  1. Looks like it would be handy, but wouldn’t something that was dynamic, like a custom iPad MIDI controller or a touchscreen controller, be easier to use and offer more flexibility?

    What do you do when they add features to that aren’t on your keyboard?
