HERA Software

If using the HERA software, you can do everything we explained on the keyboard, and much more. The key assignment tab is opened, and on the right, we see that we can change this over six profiles too. Here you can click on any key on the keyboard and reassign them to do any of the functions found in the drop-down menu shown in the middle. We are covering a bar with that dropdown menu, and it informs you how much of the storage you are currently using with the programming.

If you want to use Macros, you must first stop in the Macro editor, and either import previously made Macros or get to programming them. This is one of the most involved Macro systems we have ever messed around with. Every feature is present; you can add mouse functions, you can edit timing, insert commands; the list goes on and on.

Moving to the keyboard luminance tab, we can start to mess around with the LEDs. The image at the top will change to match whatever the choice is before you save to ensure it is what you want to use, and there is a full list of preset options to choose from. Under the drop-down, you can also adjust speed, brightness, and the direction of flow for all of the modes.

If you are the type that is forgetful and need the keyboard to keep you on track, the Hermes P. RGB has sounds and timers that can be set to keys. This way you do not burn the pizza, miss a job interview, or it can even wake you up after a nap.

The Hermes P. RGB comes with five sound files to use as defaults. You can use a microphone or grab sound bites from the internet and via the sound file edit tab, you can add them in, cut them down, or do just about anything you want the keyboard to sound like with actions or timers.

In the timer setting tab, this is where you will enter the timed event. You can set folders for similar timers, and you can name them anything you want to. This is also where you set the length of the timer wanted, and you can even have it produce an onscreen message when the timer ends.

The last tab offers a palace to check for updates or with a click, are delivered to the Gamdias main page. This window shows the model of the product, the firmware version, and it seems there are no newer versions at this time. It also shows which software you have running, with the latest version showing below it.
