SWARM Software

After choosing the device at the top of the SWARM window, you can begin to see the options the software affords. Here we can play around with the sound feedback, LED feedback, character repeat, or reset the SOVA MK to the defaults. You can also scroll down a bit on this page, but it only offers a couple more LED feedback options.

The key assignment provides the ability to program the keys to darn near anything you can think of. You can remap keys, set keys to Macros, pick through a selection of games to launch, and even look through their preset collection. To the right, you can choose this view, or you can have all the keys listed vertically.

Key illumination is where you can change the way the LEDs display lighting. You can select the preset mode, and choose from the options below, or you can go custom, and set them up any way you like. This is also where you can adjust the brightness with a slider, rather than using only five presets the F11 key offers.

Along with all of the settings we just explained, you can also set as many profiles as you wish to make. This means that for every game or application you use the most, you can adjust the SOVA MK to be ready for anything you want it to do. Simply add a profile in this menu, and then it can be selected when programmed from the first three windows we showed.

The Macro Manager is also laid out well and has many of the features that users desire. There are games on the left which can be used to pick from a huge list of predefined commands, and it is also where you would add new Macros to program. Once that is done, you can check off the timers, delays, repeat, and is also where you find the Record button to start programming the actual key combinations.
