Looking at the MasterKeys Pro S first, but it also applies to the MasterKeys Pro L, the left side of the keyboard shows the two-part frame design. We also see the curvature of the key caps layout, and that most keys lean away from your hands.

On top, the layout is typical for a US keyboard, this is, of course, a TLK design, and these are offered in a black keys on black frame design, and you can just see hints of the white painted steel tray.

Starting off the dual-functionality keys, we first look to the F1 through F4 keys. Here you can add red in nine levels to adjust for a custom color, which by default is white. The same can be done with both green and blue, but the F4/Mode button starts the long list of pre-programmed LED options to cycle through.

On the F54 through F8 keys, we find the repeat rate settings for each key stroke. You can keep things normal with 1X, and if you want the specific key to repeat 2, 4, or 8 times with one key press, you select the appropriate key.

On the F9 through F12 keys, we are offered a Windows lock, record LED backlight, Record Macro, and delete Macro buttons. This means you don't necessarily need software to get those functions as well.

You can also select one of the four profiles to set LED schemes and Macros too. As with all the other dual-function keys, hold the Function key in and press the corresponding key, here selecting profile P1, P2, P3, or P4 to save your creations too.

In this group of nine keys, we have even more multi-function keys. Along the top are keys for setting a Single Macro Loop, Repeat Macro, or an Infinite Loop setting. On the lower six keys, we find play/pause, forward, and volume up in the middle. The lower row offers stop, back, and volume down multi-media keys.
