    Is a dedicated color coded shortcut mapped keyboard worth the investment?

    Just curious.

    look at

    I thought about it, but then realised I could learn the shortcuts in a solid
    day of editing on the new system anyway!

    the only advantage they offer is the shuttle which can be bought separately

    I have one that was given to me.

    Is it worth the $100 or so? Not learn the keyboard shortcuts
    quickly anyway and then it's just a colorful
    set of keys you don't need anymore.

    For a "beginner" it might help though.

  6. I agree with Steve. In an environment where people use the system, who
    use it infrequently, it's a handy helper to find the right keys. Here
    at my school we have a couple of them for our Discreet Edit-systems,
    and it helps those who want to learn to use the keyboard. But after
    some time they nailed the shortcuts (I notice the difference between
    them looking at the keyboard when I train them, and the time it comes
    to testing them), and wouldn't need the keyboard anymore. So, if you
    use your NLE irregulary, and have troubles remembering the keys, by
    all means, get one of those coloured keyboards.
