I walked out of Micro Center today with a little blue box. Randomly decided that I wanted a soundboard so I grabbed a Stream Deck. Luckily, I happened to already own a license to Voicemod and—coincidentally enough—Elgato's software had built-in integration with it. Just today I've

10/10 highly recommend.

Oh, and it also works great for quickly controlling streams!

What shenanigans have you all used your Stream Decks for?

    Nice! I had been eyeing one at my store forever but never pulled the trigger. My wife and roommate ended up surprising me with one for Christmas! I have a different set of actions assigned to each horizontal row. My top row is my soundboard row, where I put all of my clips and audio effects. The 3 left buttons of the middle row are media control keys (Back, Next, Play/Pause) and the remainder of the middle row are misc functions (Spotify button, weather, etc.). The bottom row is mostly dedicated to monitoring; a button for CPU Temp, Clock, GPU Temp, Ram Speed, etc. I'm happy with it, but the limited space is definitely attracting me to the XL!

    It seems like the stream deck is very useful! I have seen reviews and a lot of my friends and co-workers have one, so now I am tempted to mess around and try it out as well! I think the first thing I would do is put a bunch of funny audio effects on it 🤣

    I have two Stream Decks, one for work and one for home! I use the work one the most as it has a ton of preloaded Text macros that I do use for various things related to my work. The one at home is mainly used to mute the Mic, a counter for stream and other miscellaneous things.

    It's funny however, as me using it for work has convinced a solid 5-10 corworkers to purchase one for work as well! One of my favorite features is the Usermade Plug-In "Super Macro". This let's you do SO MUCH at the push of a button, though it has a bit of a learning curve.

    I've thought about getting a stream deck many times for work, but never went through with it. I see a few here and there in our office though.

    I feel like the Stream Deck would be useful for macros. Like if you go to a certain page a lot, or if you use a certain command a lot.
