    X-keys XK-68 reviews

    XK-68+Jog/Shuttle is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want to use this product with every application I use. Mainly I use this product with Video editing and quick LR editing. However I've come to find out you can use it with any application you desire, from as little as enabling any sort of complex gaming macros, to setting up quick paths for Video Playback Programs like Playback Pro. I will say it took me a few days to start to get a hang of what I was doing. (You need to have some basic understanding of programing to get started). Obviously the more advanced the functions you want the deeper your knowledge of programing has to be however X-keys does have a decent amount of Software support to help you on thier website. My only gripe is that I wished they had some more video support from their website since I learn best that way. So I had to look at some secondary sources to help. Basically I'm rating this 5 stars because I'm impressed with the sheer versatility of this keyboard. Even though it took me a bit to figure things out, once I did, I realized the only thing to limit me was my imagination.
