The Professional Series 3.0 Keyboard for Final Cut Pro X from Bella is a control surface of sorts that's optimized for Apple's Final Cut Pro X, with an integrated jog/shuttle wheel and keycaps coded with colors & icons that illustrate the keyboard shortcuts for the NLE application. On top of that, it can be used as a regular keyboard for any other application for your machine.
Using a keyboard with marked & color-coded keyboard commands is a great way to learn those commands and thereby start to edit more efficiently. Download the keyboard's driver for Final Cut Pro X, and you've got instant access to popular presets. Integrated into the keyboard to the right of the main bank of keys, the jog/shuttle controller enables both turbo-charged and fine-grain control over cycling through footage – whether you want to zip through clips minutes at a time or step through them frame-by-frame. Two programmable buttons sit atop the jog/shuttle wheels.
The Professional Series keyboard includes a NeoLite 12" LED gooseneck, for helping to illuminate both the keys and the area around the keyboard – this is especially useful for traditional darkened edit suites. The light is powered via one of the three ports on the keyboard, which also features two USB 2.0 ports for providing access to such devices as an external hard drive or an iPhone.
