Computer used by Daniel in tutorial videos?

Post by ChrisW » Sun Jan 15, 2017 2:00 pm

Hi Daniel,

Sorry to bother you, but if it doesn't violate any rules, could you tell me which Mac you're using in the tutorial videos? I'm starting to look for a replacement for my MacBook Pro - something with a decent sized screen,

Thanks & regards,

Chris

It looks like a 27" iMac. Your options are limited: either an iMac or a Mini with a third-party display.

Yes, that's what I thought but was slightly intrigued by the non-standard keyboard.

Daniel's keyboard appears to be a Cherry Stream (or possibly a G85-23100)

It's anybody's guess as to why he's using that!

Thanks for the link, it does look a nice keyboard - perhaps the spill resistance is what attracted Daniel ;)

It's not one of Daniels' computers, I believe it was all shot in the Steinberg office in Hamburg - maybe they like spill resistant. Daniel normally uses a Macbook.

Since the thread is already way off topic, I'll add a recommendation for this keyboard:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-Wirel ... h+keyboard

It is the best I have ever had (I have the German version), and Logitech now seem to have figured out how to make drivers that actually work. I keep it well out of the way of my tea mug, but it is actually very easy to clean and needs no batteries!

Totally! I have two of these both wirelessly connected to the same receiver dongle on my desktop. They stay charged up, have no cables, and typing on them is great. They have taken a lot of punishment, and keep on working. (I am not paid for writing anything! ;) )

They do look really nice, but would they work on a Mac?

They have a Mac version and a PC version. I'm actually using the Mac version with my PC. Also, I have found these quite cheaply on ebay.

I've got one of those Logitech wireless keyboards as well (on PC) - combined with a mouse, so you only need one wireless USB thing to stick into your computer USB port.

Works really well, and at $22 won't break the bank.

This is a different keyboard- uses batteries. The one cited above is solar powered. Mmmm solar. ;)

Since it already sparked so much interest and speculation, I checked the room where the video was shot, and it is actually a Cheery G230 keyboard.

It's a standard keyboard here in our office. IT buys them for us, so whenever someone needs a new keyboard, they pull one out from the stock. I'm also typing this on the same model. Very comfortable...

Thanks Ulf, it's actually very interesting to get glimpses into the working lives of the people who produce such great software for us.

Yes, at times...? But let's stop joking. I think at the end of the day the work and daily life here is not so different to other companies that produce software. We also have plenty of meetings and quarrel over best concepts and the like. What's special here at Steinberg, the majority of people here are musicians (on whatever level) themselves and are wholeheartedly doing their job for the sake of bringing you the best tools for music creation. It's not a job, it's our vocation.

I was using that keyboard because the keyboard that came with the iMac used a German layout, and doing those videos was already like rubbing my stomach and patting my head at the same time – trying to both use the software and talk coherently to the camera simultaneously (those tutorials were done in basically two or three takes each) – so trying to also translate from English to German key positions on the fly was too much for my puny brain. I asked the IT people whether they had any English layout keyboards, and that was the one they gave me, rather than an Apple one.

I quite liked it, for what it's worth, not as clicky as the old microswitch Cherry keyboards I used to use back in my PC-using days, but it felt good for the day or so I was using it.

Thanks Daniel, having struggled with a Spanish keyboard once simply to send an email, I can see the problem. The videos are excellent by the way.
