Once you have downloaded and installed the software, once started, this is what you will see. There are tabs across the top, and we are in the pinned menu at the moment, where we can adjust the DPI settings, pointer speed, illumination, and remap the mouse. At the bottom, we also see a couple more tabs, and the five profiles to be used to customize this mouse.

In the setting tab, we can do many things. These include adjusting the sensitivity, vertical scroll speed, horizontal tilt speed, and the rate of double-click to open anything. On the right, we can change the settings for each of the five DPI levels, and disable some if five is too many to use. Then there is also the Windows pointer speed, as well as boxes to enable acceleration or to display pointer trails.

Button assignment is straightforward and is where you go to remap the mouse or add Macros, hotkeys, timers, various mouse, multimedia, and other functions, as well as setting one as the EasyShift+ button, which is disabled by default. Keep in mind, once the EasyShift+ button is programmed to the left column, the entire right column can offer a second layer to all the rest of the buttons.

In the advanced settings, we can change the polling rate, enable sounds, set the LOD to high or low, reset the entire software suite to defaults, or address the illumination of the ROCCAT logo.

The profile manager is self-explanatory, as this is where you go to set onboard profiles. Each of the five profiles can have an image added; it can be renamed, set to launch a with a particular program, or deleted. The arrow on the right allows you to duplicate a profile, replace it, move it to PC storage, or be set as a desktop profile.

The Macro manager is where you go to set commands for MMO games, or to make life easier for those working with various kinds of software. You first click on the folder to add a Macro, name it, then once that is done, click on the start recording button, do your thing, and stop it when it's done. You can add fixed delays or record the commands as they are input, you can repeat the Macro in loops, and you can also import previous Macros you have made, as well as exporting them for future use.
