Having the right Replay Controller makes Replay much easier…

As a member of the class you will have an opportunity to purchase either of the X-keys Replay keyboards that TJ uses for his productions at a discount.

TJ started out using vMix Replay with the XKE-68 Jog & Shuttle controller created his own custom layout for the keyboard. Here’s a video he did showing how he uses that controller.

Then, X-keys asked him to test a new prototype Replay controller, the XKE-64 Jog & Shuttle T-bar. TJ put it through its paces and liked this new one a lot. So much that he designed a new custom layout. And vMix liked the layout so much, that they are including it in the next vMix Update.

Both of these controllers will be available at a discount for Class Members.
