If you’re a streamer who’s been eyeing up a Loupedeck, you’re in luck, as there’s a bunch of deals floating around right now. Thanks to the Amazon Spring Sale, you’ll be able to grab up to 16% off the entire Live range, including the premium model that caters to professional media editing and content creation.

To browse the various Loupedeck offers included in the Spring Sale, you’ll want to head over to Amazon, as you’ll find the likes of the Loupedeck Live S reduced from $189 to $159.99. If you’re craving even more buttons and dials, you might want to consider the full fat Loupedeck Live, as it’s also down to $229 (was $269). Feeling even fancier, don’t worry, there’s even an excuse to splash out on the premium ‘Creative Tool’ version, with a 13% discount bringing it down from $559 to $489.

That latter console is admittedly pricey, and most players looking for streaming accessories will likely benefit more from the middle Loupedeck Live. However, each version definitely comes with its own set of perks, and you’ll ultimately be able to place every shortcut, quick action, and macro you need at your fingertips. Even if you merely want to make the sad hamster violin music play on command, you’ll be able to fuel your meme desires using this device (we won’t judge you).

Should you buy a Loupedeck?

Macro pads and similar peripherals may sound a little niche, but in reality, most PC users will be able to put devices like the Loupedeck to good use. Whether you’re looking to streamline your Twitch streams with tactile access to shortcuts and commands, or you’re a professional video/audio editor looking for a customizable console, you’ll end up with something that’ll improve your desktop experience tenfold. 

It’s worth noting that if you shop around, you’re likely to find cheaper alternatives to the Loupedeck, albeit with less features. For example, the Elgato Stream Deck mini provides six customisable buttons with tiny screens for $59.99, while the full 15 key version goes for $147. The caveat is that you’ll miss out on the dials included with the likes of the Loupedeck Live S, and you’d have to upsell yourself to the Stream Deck+ to gain like-for-like features.

In any case, if you’ve been waiting to pick up the Loupedeck Live specifically, you’ll be able to nab it at its lowest price right now. It’s nice to see discounts applied to the whole line-up, but I reckon most players will gain more for the middle ground option.

I’ve been messing around with PCs, video game consoles, and tech since before I could speak. Don’t get me wrong, I kickstarted my relationship with technology by jamming a Hot Wheels double-decker bus into my parent’s VCR, but we all have to start somewhere. I even somehow managed to become a walking, talking buyer’s guide at my teenage supermarket job, which helped me accept my career fate. So, rather than try to realise my musician dreams, or see out my University degree, I started running my own retro pop culture site and writing about video games and tech for the likes of TechRadar, The Daily Star, and the BBC before eventually ending up with a job covering graphics card shenanigans at PCGamesN. Now, I’m your friendly neighbourhood Hardware Editor at GamesRadar, and it’s my job to make sure you can kick butt in all your favourite games using the best gaming hardware, whether you’re a sucker for handhelds like the Steam Deck and Nintendo Switch or a hardcore gaming PC enthusiast.
