In January we published a blog post announcing new Finale keyboard skins. These skins fit over select Macintosh keyboards and display popular Finale shortcuts. While these are very useful productivity tools, we were a bit surprised when this post proved to be our most popular ever, with almost 10,000 likes. While some of us suspect this huge number was the result of a Facebook intern spilling coffee into a server, the keyboard skins did sell out almost overnight. The good news is that they’re back in stock. What’s more, we now have Finale Macintosh keyboards available, too.
These custom USB keyboards, pictured above, are color-coded with Finale shortcuts printed directly on the keys. Like the skins, these “reminders at your fingertips” are a godsend for those of us who want to increase our productivity, but don’t always remember every keystroke.
The keyboards are based on the original Ultra Thin Alu Apple Pro keyboard, and offer plug-and-play setup with any current or recent USB-equipped Mac. Because they also include all the regular letter, number, and symbol labeling, they can be used as your sole keyboard, or in conjunction with others.
The new keyboards are available today for $129 in the MakeMusic store under “Recommended Products,” where you’ll also find additional information about both the keyboards and keyboard skins.
