Do you or would you use a midi controller? What is a midi controller? It’s a device of buttons/dials and sliders that let you control things. Originally used by musicians but has now been adapted by image editors. So with a midi controller, software like MIDI2LR and Lightroom CC, I can link a lightroom function (slider or rating, or changing panels) to a button or dial on the midi controller. I just got one, the Behringer X Touch Mini. I’ve gotten it set up and it does make my edit work faster and as I memorize what botton/dial does what it’ll get faster. If you want more info, Here’s my review. For more details on the process.

I’m going to be writing a few posts in a series that feature some of the more unique and hidden features of both Adobe Lightroom & Aperture. I call them my ‘holy grail’ adjustments or my ‘hidden gems’ because not many professional photographers I know that use Lightroom on a daily basis even consider using these adjustments in their workflow.
