Topic: Keyboards and Control Surfaces
Buying a better chair and assuring perfect neck, arm and wrist angle measurements can help fight destructive carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive stress injury (RSI), but nothing can harness the increased horsepower of a new software release like a dedicated DAW control surface. Consider just the time and muscle movement it takes to locate, grab and rotate one EQ knob back and forth with a mouse. Do the same calculation based on simply grabbing and twisting a dedicated EQ knob on a DAW controller, and multiply that effort by a hundred or a thousand times in a single day. You’ve already saved 30 minutes or more per session ? and that’s just for EQ.
