Cubase 7 Dedicated Keyboard/keycaps?

Postby alexis » Mon Mar 10, 2014 5:41 am

Back in SX3 days, I got some stickies with Cubase "out of the box" shortcuts printed on them to paste on top of the normal keyboard keys. They were great, and I find that now even 10 years and 3+ full versions later (using C6.5) enough of them are current to make them useful.

I'm about to start using C7.5.10, and was wondering if they'd been updated . A quick search led to some actual pre-built keyboards, rather than "keycap" stickies:

http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/CubaseKeyPC/

It's not clear to me what version of Cubase they were made for, and I'm hesitant to spend that much on something that is not quite up-to-date when I take delivery.

Does anyone know of any products like this that have been updated for Cubase 7? Or are things so flexible in Cubase 7 that the whole idea of standard keyboard shortcuts is obsolete?

Thanks -
Alexis

You won't get any better than Editor keys , if you can try and get hold of the 2010 style keyboard they are made a lot better than the new version IMO ;-)

Made a lot better in terms of build quality, G-string, or in some other way? 2010 was before C7 came out (I think) ... I guess the shortcuts didn't change much from 6.5?

Thanks!

Yes build quality and what shortcuts are there to of changed between version 6 and 7 ???

The keyboard works perfect with all versions of cubase from SX3 to the latest version and i can't see that there are going to be any changes in these short cuts in version 8,9,10 ,only programmable key commands

In the Keycommand Editor you may find presets for earlier versions - I found C5 standard which corresponds to my custom KB.
...yes I think it can be easily done, just take everything down to Highway 61.
