LogicKeyboard, les claviers Apple pour les pros du raccourci

Par Pierre Dandumont

Pendant les soldes, LDLC a mis en vente un truc un peu particulier : un kit LogicKeyboard pour les anciens claviers Apple (et pour Logic Pro 8). Un truc qui devait traîner derrière une armoire, vu que le clavier en question n’est plus en vente depuis 2007. Vu le prix, et avec un code promo (SNOW10), j’en ai acheté un.

La société danoise LogicKeyboard est spécialisée dans les claviers personnalisés pour les logiciels professionnels, de Logic Pro X à Final Cut X en passant par Premiere, Photoshop, etc. Si vous n’avez jamais vu ce genre de claviers, ils intègrent des touches colorées avec les raccourcis indiqués directement. Dans un contexte professionnel, et avec des logiciels qui font énormément appel à des raccourcis, le gain en productivité est assez important.

Après

Pouir l’exemple, je suis allé voir ce que la société propose pour Logic Pro X. On trouve donc des skins, c’est-à-dire des caches à placer sur les claviers classiques (MacBook Pro après 2016, MacBook Pro avant 2016 – 2012 à 2015, je suppose – et Magic Keyboard avec pavé numérique. Mais la société vend aussi des claviers complets. Il peut s’agit de claviers compatibles avec les Mac (avec des touches adaptées à macOS) ou tout simplement des claviers Apple modifiés en usine. Pour Logic Pro X, la société vend un ancien clavier Apple aluminium pour 140 €. Dans les années 2000, la société vendait aussi des touches en kit, quand il était possible de les enlever facilement. Le passage sur un format à ciseaux à évidemment sonné le glas de cette possibilité.

Un clavier Apple modifié

Le kit

Le kit nécessite un clavier Apple Keyboard (le blanc, sorti en 2003, référence A1048). Le kit, adapté à l’AZERTY (agencement ISO), comprend toutes les touches nécessaires et un outil pour échanger facilement les keycap. La qualité des pièces est correcte, même si le plastique semble subjectivement meilleur sur le clavier Apple. Les touches n’ont pas exactement le même marquage (la police utilisée est différente) et les lettres sont plus petites pour afficher les raccourcis. Le changement de touches est assez rapide, en quelques dizaines de minutes, vous devriez arriver à changer toutes les touches. La seule partie énervante vient des grandes touches, il faut enlever les barres de métal internes pour les placer dans les nouvelles touches.

Je n’ai pas trouvé le prix du kit à l’origine, mais c’était a priori intéressant si vous possédez déjà le clavier Apple.

Exploring the art of the VJ pioneer: Nam June Paik @Tate Modern

Par Marco Savo

 

 

We couldn’t miss this retrospective exhibition about the father of Video Art and one of the main references in the history of art for Audiovisual experimentation.

More than 200 artworks ranging from TV screens, to robots, video walls and immersive installations. A must-go event meticulously curated by the Tate to give insight into the work of this game-changing artist and researcher.

The first thing that strikes in Paik’s work is his playfulness. No matter what device he uses, the outcome is always lighthearted and pervaded by a witty sense of humor.

  • Nam June Paik @Tate Modern

His personal relationship with technology has always featured curiosity and optimism. In TV Garden he creates a surreal immersive environment where TV screens and plants aesthetically coexist harmoniously, although weirdly.

His attitude shows a deep connection with Buddhist philosophy. TV Buddha clearly states this. With Buddha watching the TV and watching himself at the same time, he helps us to realise that our body merges with the nature in the same way it merges with technology. One is all and all is one.

  • TV Garden – Nam June Paik
  • TV Buddha – Nam June Paik

Paik embraces chaos and technology all together in his Zen driven artistic experimentation. In his Robots, wires, pins, knobs, every component is well exposed in his fascinating ironic mess. Paik’s playful approach intends to humanize technology bringing it closer to the people, easier to grasp and easier to intervene.

  • Robots

Paik manipulates analog technology not only for aesthetic purposes but also as a political act. His anarchist artistic experimentation counteracts the consumerism driven by the mass manipulation through the TV.

Audiovisual City top picks of Paik’s expo are undoubtedly the two spectacularly immersive installations: Video Wall and Sistine Chapel.

Video Wall is a mesmerizing live collage of multiple video feeds. It strongly communicates the instability of perception and lack of focus in the mass media world.

Our eyes restlessly bounce within the video space from one feed to the other. Only after thorough observation we realize each image is linked up with its surrounding revealing the artistic and rhythmic pattern of the artwork. Only going through these steps we manage to embrace the multiple inputs as one video totem.

Video Wall

The Sistine Chapel is a stunningly sumptuous Audiovisual feast. It’s a large-scale installation made by 40 video projectors exhibited in plain sight in the centre of the room as if they were musical instruments.

This baroque multi-projection is a pioneering experiment of video mapping. As it’s really hard to focus on the single video feeds, the viewer is lead to appreciate the overall immersive AVscape created by this chaotically symphonic orchestra.

  • Sistine Chapel

Artistic expression and technological experimentation bound together and filled with Nam June Paik’s refined sense of humor. Art that speaks to everyone that has ears and eyes for it!
