I recently purchased a Corsair gaming keyboard, specifically the K50. It obviously has all the usual keys one would expect, and an additional eighteen on the left hand side. They're designed to allow for macros, something which I can see being handy in games but not really something I'd use day to day.
However, I wondered if they could be put to use in Lightroom to speed up my edits.
I'd like very much to be able to bind some of these keys to a slider, so that a button can (for example) increase exposure by 0.33, another to decrease it by 0.33, for example. Or perhaps bind them to common keywords for the metadata. Or even have it assigned to a preset I can apply to an image on a button-press.
I have seen programs which let you customise the "normal" keys to achieve similar functionality (VSCO do one, for example) and I have seen programs which work in conjunction with MIDI sliders and what not.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
