I finally gave in! I’ve already scoured the internet and this forum for stream deck suggestions as I now wait for it to arrive, but if you have any favorite suggestions, let me know.
I’m a big KM fan but am so fast with my keyboard I’m a little worried I just wasted $150. David’s conflict pallet trick has solved all my keyboard shortcut troubles, but I think there’s still a place for this. I do actual streaming a couple of times a month and I think that’s when I’d use it, when I don’t want to pull up Raycast, etc. during streams.
I’m stuck between thinking I wasted $150 and wishing I’d gotten the XL
My XL arrived earlier this week, and I already love it, even while the majority of my buttons still need some attention…
What are you using it for? Any easy wins as you’ve started using it?
I had similar thoughts. The stream deck takes automation to another step, because there are no shortcuts to remember. I do not have to worry about what keyboard shortcut to assign an automation because I don’t need do assign a keyboard shortcut. It does not seem like much, especially for $150, but it is freeing.
This is helpful therapy! Thank you! I feel much more justified in my purchase already!
As for the XL, use palettes of actions. You have a near infinite set of buttons to push.
I got the smaller one but in reading about pallets I’m thinking that will be sufficient for now at least?
You mean Stream Deck, not Steam Deck, right?
Yes Typed it out on my phone and it must have autocorrected? Or I just mistyped. 50/50 chance ha
I got one of the Stream Deck XLs when Adorama had their daily deal last week. I’ve only set up a handful of the buttons so far, but I’m excited for what this thing can do. I feel like this is the driver I’ve been waiting for to push me deeper into the automation/shortcuts life.
That’s great! Wish I’d known about that deal now!
And mine is supposed to be here tomorrow!
