Sketchup 3D Model
We offer this Sketchup model as a 3D rendering of the XK-12 Joystick for viewing or planning purposes. Dimensions and details of the model, while reasonably accurate, should not be used for critical specifications.
vMix and Tricaster offer native support for the X-keys 128 with no additional software required. Our Backlighting Utility may be used to set the intensity and default state of the addressable backlighting LEDs.
