You can spend hours - if not days inside the edit, eyes focused on your bright monitor, so it's important you choose the best tools to help you become more productive than ever before.
A few months back we had a dream of creating the most advanced editing keyboard for Ableton Live, so we put our heads together and worked with thousands of editors just like you from around the world, to come up with the ultimate backlit editing keyboard.
Now for the first time you can edit faster, reduce eye strain with the world's first and only backlit editing keyboard for Ableton Live. You can choose a Mac Ableton Live Keyboard or PC Version.
From ColdPlay’s producer Rik Simpson, the BBC, Fox Network to thousands of home users, the campaign was backed from users from all over the world. The successful Kickstarter campaign reached over a huge 200% funding goal.
That's why we've developed the brand new range of backlit keyboards, all designed for your editing software.
How many times have you sat in a dark room editing, struggling to see the keyboard, or simply used a poor quality keyboard? We're getting rid of both of those problems today.
Eye strain is a big problem for most computer users and for editors working in a dimly lit room the problem can be much greater. Did you know you can be causing yourself to suffer with eye strain, back pain and neck pain?
We worked with Optical Express in the UK to ensure we developed a product which would help remove these problems.
“This innovation should significantly reduce eye strain symptoms. This will ultimately improve efficiency for the user & improve eye health in the long term” said Stephen Hannan, Clinical Services Director of Optical Express.
The keyboards are designed to help you edit faster than ever before. No more looking through PDF's to find the shortcuts for Ableton Live. Now you'll have them to hand. You'll be surprised how quickly you can edit.
Editors Keys are used by most of the worlds top editing suites, post production houses, recording studios and universities, so it's time for you to improve your computer set up and join the editing revolution.
These keyboards work perfectly with a Mac or PC. Simply choose your option above.

Do the keys have stickers on them, or is it printed on directly?
By Gavin on December 7, 2015
All of these keyboards are manufactured from new, with the shortcuts build directly imprinted onto the keys. (We do not use stickers on the keys) The keyboards will not fade. You'll love it.
Does the Ableton Live backlit keyboard also work with Mac? Or are you guys planning on releasing their own backlit keyboards? These are awesome I would be very surprised if they only work with PC being that most musicians are working on Mac these days.

How does the Mac/Pc hybrid keyboard work? I'm interested in the Mac version of the Ableton live backlit keyboard. Do I need to specify after paying?
By Jordan B on April 6, 2016
The Mac/Hybrid keyboard is a new special type of keyboard which allows you to use your keyboard on either a Mac or PC. The keyboard will feature all of your standard Mac shortcuts and command keys and using our simple driver at www.editorskeys.com/hybrid you can use your keyboard on your Mac in less that two clicks.
Then if you ever have a project which needs finishing on a PC you can take your keyboard with you.
Is there a wireless version of this? Im not a fan of wires, but this looks amazing!
By Jedipaul on November 26, 2016
We do have a wireless Ableton Live keyboard here:
This keyboard is non-backlit (you need a cable to power the lights.)
Do you currently have an Ableton backlight keyboards for PC/Mac in stock, or ideally just Mac?
By Rob on April 17, 2017
Hey Rob - Yes we have the Mac ones in stock now. If you choose 'UK Mac' this is the right option for you.
Hi I notice this keyboard has a cmd button for Mac but does the pc version have ctrl instead of cmd as I'm using windows 10 with live 9
By Daemonforce on July 7, 2017
We have two different keyboards so if you select the Mac version you would get the standard Mac layout. (PC layout would of course be the PC layout.)
Hope this helps.

Your keys to success!!
By: Legions.se on January 5, 2016
I just recieved my new Ableton designed keyboard and almost instantly I´ve started to use short commands for things I actually didn´t know I could do. As the aim is to move away from the mouse as much as possible, this is a great step on the way. Apart from this, it gives the feel of actually focusing on creating, a little bit like putting on a suit for a party, you get your mind in the right place!
Anyways, apart from the above it is great looking, comes in a very nice box and with a note that actually looks like it was hand written which gives a very nice personal touch. Delivery date was right on schedule.
As I see it, it is one more step towards the perfect setup.
Best Ableton Live Keyboard
By: Sadowick Productions on May 29, 2015
The Editors Keys Ableton Live Backlit Keyboard is well made,comfortably lit and the chiclet keys have a tactile familiarity for someone who wants a recognizable tool. Shortcut groups are colored and
labeled intuitively. No more squinting to find a key and no more eye-strain during those long studio sessions.
