After visiting the support page of the Tesoro site and grabbing the software, after installation, this is what we see first. Along the top, you can select the profile you wish to program, but if it is set in PC mode, you will notice many of the options at the bottom are grayed out. To the left, the amount of memory used is shown, and a large image of the keyboard sits in the middle. In PC mode, we can only access the Sync Program feature, the Illumination settings, Lighting Effects, and being able to set this profile back to factory defaults.
If you were to click on the Sync Program bar, the bottom right corner of the window changes. This new menu has arrived, and in it, you can browse for programs, mostly games and editing suites, but this allows a profile to boot when the program is loaded.
Illumination allows you to set the entire keyboard backlight color when in PC mode. You can select from presets, use the bar to the right, or enter your RGB code numbers to adjust it. When in profiles one through five, when keys are selected for programming, this is also where you will do that.
Lighting Effects offers eight ways for the LEDs to react or be displayed. Standard is all one color of LEDs, trigger means it lights when pressed, and ripple sends light away from each keystroke. Fireworks make a small explosion around the key, and radiation sends light left and right of the key being pressed. Breathing is standard, there is a rainbow wave which moves to the right, and Spectrum, by default, illuminates the most used gaming keys on the left.
By selecting one of the five profiles, all of the options become available. So far, we have started back at the beginning of the tabs and opened the Macro Settings. In here you can select a key to set the Macro to, name it, record it, and edit it all you want. Once set up, be sure to save before closing this window, and again before you close the main window, as it will then be stored in the keyboard's onboard memory.
As for Key Assignment, there is that option as well. This will allow for a complete remap of the entire keyboard if desired. You can also disable keys now, as well as opening the launch Program option, where a single key press will open any program you have installed on the PC.
