Bamboo

I was recently at a film editors studio looking at footage for a possible scoring job, and noticed that the guy was using a tablet and stylus instead of a mouse. My life changed in one second after seeing that. Until then I was obsessing over a solution for my aching wrist and lack tedious accuracy in my Pro Tools Edits. So I got this Bamboo Wacom tablet for like fifty bucks off Craig's List. It took some getting used to, but I love it.

Do you use your bamboo for all cursor actions? I had a wacom but found it required a little too much effort for producing in ableton. Great for photoshop and illustrator though!

Hey Tim, Yes it does everything that a normal mouse would do. Only it has the added functionality of scrolling via grab and pull. Very handy.
