We weren't too sure whether to show you the software setup first and then the product itself, or vice versa, but we know that if you see the software without knowing how it looks in use you wont pay attention, and if you have an image of how the software actually is in use then it will make more sense, so we've done it this way around. If you wish we'd have done it the other way go to the next page then come back. Yes, we cater to all wishes here thanks to our easy-to-use page flipping web-design.

I have on of these and it's absolutely great. You can also download the crash bandicoot stream deck pack after a quick search, as its not immediately obvious on the product page anymore. Or you can follow the link :- https://www.elgato.com/en/gaming/crash-bandicoot

I recently picked one of these up primarily to assist with streaming, but I find i'm using it a lot as a launcher and for shortcuts.
The automatic profile switching when a particular window is on top is also a handy little feature.Quote
