This tutorial will be a game changer for anyone who’s interested in a “build your own stream deck ” solution. This is easy, cheap and perfect for OBS Studio. This is a DIY Macro Keyboard lesson that provides info on how to setup a 88 Key OBS stream deck for $10 bucks (not including tax if any). HAVE YOU SEEN THE PRICES FOR STREAM DECKS? the price is outrageous. The charge an arm and a leg for those extra keys. They want $250 for the Elgato XL stream deck and it only has 32 buttons. That’s over $7 per button. I’m going to teach you how to get the same kind of functionality with a normal keyboard that can doe the very same tasks for only 11 cents per key AND you get 88 keys!!!! This is incredible.

Below is a list of the software and hardware you will need for this Elgato Stream Deck replacement project.

This tutorial will be explained within the realm of this scenario. We will be creating macros to play sound effects while conducting a live stream on OBS. This keeps visitors around longer because the sound effects support the conversation. You will learn how to employ a second keyboard so that it triggers these sound effects. After watching this video you will have the power to assign buttons to any task in OBS from switching scenes to activating transitions. You will also have the power to apply these macro to any program that you use on a regular basis. This tutorial will be a incredible boost in user efficiency for day to day computer use.

I will start this stream deck tutorial by explaining how you can stop a second keyboard from typing when you plug it in to your computer. I will explain that with the use of the HID Macro software you can have the second keyboard (stream deck) control OBS.
