    This is very cool Josh. You’re a pioneer of alternate controls for DaVinci!

    Interestingly enough I have tried a lot of things (G13, iPad w/ KeyPad pro) for extra buttons but now I’m back to the keyboard. I’ve recently repositioned my keyboard on a tray right below my wave, so hand travel distance is minimal. And I’ve found a lot of times it’s just as quick for me to hit a 2 button shortcut on the keyboard than to peck out 1 key on a tactile-less touchpad or even press a key on the G13.

    I could see that. Especially with the teeny tiny apple bluetooth keyboard. I briefly checked out the X-Keys booth at NAB and I liked what I saw. It might be a good solution for you for both a tactile experience, as well as a small footprint:

    BTW, you get ControllerMate free with your purchase 😉

    Now what would really be great is if you could map specific controls to gestures instead of just hotkeys. Imagine if the rotate gesture rotates a window or pinching controlled a window’s size.

    YES! That would be awesome. Since Lion has become so gesture centric, maybe we’ll see it in V9 🙂
