Shuttle Pro Controller vs Colored Keyboard

I am looking into getting either the Shuttle Pro 2 or a keyboard with colored keys. Anyone have any thoughts on either of them helping to speed up editing (PPro & AE CS4).


Thanks

The key word is Either. Why not get them both? I like them both and use them all the time. I can never remember all keyboard shortcuts, so the colored keys are very helpful. I like the Contour Shuttle for the most used keys and love the shuttle for small movement in the timline better than the arrow keys on the keyboard.

Steve,

if money is tight,
consider the ShuttleXpress:
around $40 at B&H, and it does the job pretty well
Contour | Shuttle-Xpress NLE Multimedia Controller | SXPRS | B&H

Best
