The XK-68+Jog/Shuttle is a universal control surface from X-keys that features 68 keys, a programming button, and a Jog/Shuttle. The keys can be configured to take the place of any keyboard shortcut or macro available within the application you are using. It includes programming software for Windows and OS X, however can be used with any operating system that supports HID USB devices. For customised applications there are also SDKs available for Windows, OS X, and Linux. It is compatible with USB 1.1 and later and receives its power from the computer. A 56" integrated USB cable is included.

In addition to keys, in the centre of this control surface you will find a jog/shuttle. Taken from the analogue video editing world, the jog/shuttle incorporates two media transport controls in one, and was originally used to navigate through footage. The shuttle control being pressure-sensitive, for transporting footage forward or backward at high speed; the jog control advancing it linearly for frame-precise navigation. These controls do not have to be used for video, and can be mapped to perform any assignable function that simulates an analogue user input.
