If you’re a music producer with a music production PC, you’ve no doubt spent hours in the studio making new music. It wouldn’t be a surprise if you’ve also suffered from injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome and thumb tendinitis, which are related to bad grip on a basic computer mouse.
In our list below, we have made several recommendations, some which include trackballs and trackpads, which might be a better style for you. Here is the best mouse for music production:
Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse
The MX Master 3 from Logitech is one of the most pleasant experiences when it comes to using a mouse. I’ve personally used the MX Master 3 for several weeks and felt more productive thanks to the additional buttons, which can be completely customized for each app.
It fits great in your hand, making it comfortable for extended use. It’s got an internal Lithium-ion battery which can be easily charged with a USB cable.
Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse
With a strong focus on ergonomic design, the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse from Microsoft maximizes wrist comfort while making navigation effortless. Shaped to encourage a more natural hand, wrist, and forearm posture, Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse helps prevent the pain of repetitive stress injuries.
Microsoft Wired Ergonomic Mouse
The Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse is a cheaper, wired Surface Precision Mouse that still features programmable buttons and the same comfortable design. And for more than half the price of a Precision Mouse too. This is an excellent mouse for the price and is incredibly versatile.
Kensington Expert Mouse Wireless Trackball
While it initially might seem daunting, a finger-operated trackball might be the best way for some to work in a music studio. The mouse works great for right and left-handed users. It’s wireless and can be connected via Bluetooth or 2.4GHz wireless dongle, and uses AA batteries. There’s also a cheaper, wired option if you don’t want to spend around $65 on this wireless version.
