What drawing tablets work?

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

Having much fun w. Designer since I got it a few days ago.

 

It seems like a drawing tablet might be a good addition. Some years ago I had a Wacom. At that time it was about the only choice. I'm assuming the quality remains fine, but I see there are some competitors in the market now. I was looking at one yesterday, and it had a list of supported software. Designer was not one, but my guess is that Designer may not have been available when the model, or at least the sales page, was introduced.

 

My question is, what are people using for pressure sensitive tablets? 

 

Thx for any responses.

Those threads mention astropad but quickly discard it, it is worth noting that at the time of those threads the iPad pro and apple pencil did not exist. I already want an IPP so I would try astropad before buying a dedicated tablet, jmo

I bought a Huion 1409. Delivered today. Seems very nice. Using Designer, the 2015 iMac, and the tablet, response is very fast using vector brushes. Less than a second to display a quick stroke. Pressure and velocity, but it doesn't seem to have pen tilt. Not certain. Still trying to decide what commands to program into the express keys. One down side. The keys are matt black, like the rest of the tablet. If used in dim light, its hard to tell which button is being touched.
