After downloading and installing the keyboard configuration software, this is what we see once it is opened and running. We will cover a lot of this in the following images, but for now let's just address that you can select which of the five profiles are available to program across the top of the GUI.





Switching from normal mode to gaming mode opens the options at the bottom. Here we can select any key on the board as we see with the now red W key highlighted in the image. Once selected, it is then that you can move to the bottom and chose to set it as a T-key, use the default function, remap to another single key, or use it to launch a program.




Along the right side, you can see the tab to open the Macro key options. Once pressed, this is what you get. You can make new Macros, import and export them, set delays or ignore them, as well as any editing that needs done to one that may not be exactly right for your needs.




If you click on the lighting options tab, you are given a new image of the keyboard, and keys that are blue are what will be lit. This allows you to go into the software and set the various preset lighting options to any of the profiles, and you can also set the light intensity, pulsing mode, or turn them off without needing to use the buttons on the keyboard each time you swap profiles.




The Instant Shift system allows users to select one of the three buttons shown to quickly switch between Macro groups. This way if you want to change games, with the press of one key, you can swap Macros to go along with said game without the need to change the profile. This also gives you immediate access to all 100 Macro possibilities at once.
