That's not it. He wants to hear from people that have used them to see how they feel. There's always those gadgets that you just can't live without but you don't know until you use. I can see where he's coming from.

But then, I go back to the days of tape-to-tape editing so it’s familiar for me like having a U-matic or BetaSP control panel in front of me.
I started on those old U-matics. Linear editing brings back memories...

I have to say, for video editing, I don't miss them. The keyboard is so much more efficient than any shuttle control I've used, but as everything it does come down to personal preferences. There's these little units that are modular so you can you custom to your own needs. YMMV.

For audio/grading, completely different game.

And then DigiBeta came along with pre-read heads and we could make cross-dissolves between two clips from the same source tape and we thought we’d died and gone to heaven.

100%

The Wacom tablet has been an absolute joy for me, for the way I work and the way I think in the edit suite. I fell in love with the concept with Quantel Editbox (this was 2001/2002) and added one to my FCP2 system. I’ve never looked back.

the other day a neighbors dog yanked away its leash and lunged at my dog.

I had to kick their dog 3 times to stop mine from getting bit.
it kept coming so i kept kicking all while yelling "get away from my dog!!"

but even while I was yelling and kicking I was confident in my restraint and I didn't break anything on the other dog

You have more restraint than I do. I would've shot it if it didn't go down after a good kick or two

I have one. I never got the hang of it. It sits there collecting dust. I look at it whenever I'm tempted to buy new gadgets. It's saved me so much money over the years

Unfortunately I was recruited into another industry before those years, so I missed that part of history.

It’s certainly not for everyone. For me, it thinks the way I do. The familiar “pen and paper” hand position also means I can blaze through edits and move straight into adding text without putting down the stylus.

Wow, showing your age.

I'm no spring chicken myself. I remember 8, 16 and 24 track reel to reel analog audio tape. I remember rearranging songs via razor blade. Then in the 80's striping one track with SMPTE to sync with sequencers. Adjusting to mixing to DAT (Digital Audio Tape).

What I miss about the old analog days is the warmth of the sound.

That warm sound,... Wow, you are absolutely right!
