Yes, but there are lots of functions which are not MIDI mappable, but can have a keyboard shortcut for them. So this is where the these Macro keyboards/controllers should come on the scene.
They doesn't work on MIDI, but they allow you to assign different keyboard combinations to a single button, like one button for Save instead of Ctrl+S etc.
I can imagine a lot of potential for this kind of device in my Renoise workflow, but they're a bit pricey, I really don't want to buy it straight away and as they are generally used by video editors, I couldn't find any reviews by music producers on it.
Since Renoise is a DAW, based on heavy keyboard usage, I thought that maybe somebody has some experience with these things here already
I use midi controllers for such things, a small Akai LPD8 for triggering different global view presets with the 8 pads and using the dials for scrolling through the instrument list, pattern lines, pattern tracks etcetera. Jog-wheel could be helpful zooming into a sample, but the mouse scrollwheel suffices. Might be cool though, not familiar with the devices above.
