This plug and play shortcut keyboard comes with a built-in chip made just for macOS.

Whether you edit your projects on Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, or AVID, Logickeyboard's all-new ALBA was built to make your life a little easier. ALBA is a dedicated Apple shortcut keyboard that comes with a bunch of great features, including a built-in macOS chip (no need for drives or setup), scissor-switch keys, and two built-in USB ports.

ALBA is compatible with nearly every major NLE on the market, including Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut X, and AVID Media Composer. Or, if you already know your video editor's keyboard shortcuts, Logickeyboard also offers ALBA with standard keyboard layouts. It's 100% plug and play, meaning you don't need any drivers or setup to get going. Just plug it in and you're good to go.

Also, the built-in macOS chip makes keyboard setup simple. Logickeyboard also worked with ergonomic therapists to optimize ALBA's design. It features a typing angle of 8.5 degrees with leg lift and 4.5 without, as well as 4mm key travel, so all those long hours you spend editing won't be as hard on your hands and wrists.

Call me when they make mechanical keyboards. I don't know how anyone works with chiclet nonsense.

Probably would be better for anyone serious about editing to set up their own presets and save them on a flash drive to go.

That way you be able to set up custom functions faster and not have a jumble of conflicting images on the keyboard.

Otherwise you are probably going to have to spend that time fixing it later when updates roll out.

Plus you can get a much better keyboard for $120.

For the price, this keyboard should at least have Bluetooth connectivity.

Other pros I know use jog shuttles with assignable macro keys, so they can use them in the dark without looking at the knobs. No need for a fancy, colored keyboard.
