Razer, one of the biggest names in gaming peripherals, has announced the upcoming release of the Razer Stream Controller, the result of a collaboration with Loupedeck.
The two companies have come together to combine their expertise in streaming and content creation, utilizing Loupedeck’s hardware and software with Razer’s standing in the streaming space.
The Razer Stream Controller, a rebranded version of the Loupedeck Live, has 12 keys with haptic feedback, 6 dials with push button capability and 8 programmable buttons across the bottom. All buttons and dials can be programmed using Loupedeck’s software. The key feature of the device is its customizability, giving you the freedom to change the function of every key, button and knob on a per program basis.
Richard Hashim, head of Razer’s Mobile and Console Division, said of the announcement, “Through our fully integrated cutting-edge hardware and software approach, Razer empowers creators to not be restricted by their tools, but instead only by the limits of their imagination.”
The software also comes preloaded with profiles to control OBS, Philips Hue, Spotify, Streamlabs, Twitch and, upon the Stream Controller’s release, Razer Key Light Chroma controls. Profiles for favourite programs such as Adobe Creative Suite, DaVinci Resolve, Audacity and so many more can be downloaded to turn your Stream Controller into a complete productivity tool.
Razer joins other companies such as Elgato and Avermedia in introducing a control device for streamers, making it possible for the broadcasters to control scenes, audio and more, with the controls at their fingertips.
The Razer Stream Controller is slated for a Fall 2022 release and will be $269.99 USD, the current price of the Loupedeck Live.
