Gamdias Hera Software

Hera software is always fully loaded, and you will see much of the same here. Once installed, we opened it up to see the Key Assignment tab is the first option. This is where you can select a key, and assign it one of many options from the drop-down menu which is also showing. At the top of the keyboard, you may also use the Fn + G tab to set the G-keys, and to the right of the keyboard image, be sure to verify which of the five profiles you are setting.

Macro Management is where one would go if they wanted to program or import a Macro from another device. Using the editor is straightforward, you can easily edit commands with the menu in the middle, and there are also timing options to address how the Macro is performed.

Under Keyboard Luminance, we can set the lighting modes for each of the profiles. There are options for levels of LED intensity, the last option in that row setting the LEDs into breathing mode. The second row of options is where you can set the time span of the breathing mode in the number of seconds the lights are on and off.

Eventually, there will come a time when you are gaming but need to be reminded of something important. This tab will allow users to set timers to any key on the keyboard. With a press, a timer which has to be set by you can be set, which will play an audio file, picked by you, to go off when the time has run out.

Editing sound files are simple. Play anything you have or what to hear on the PC, then record the bit of it you want to use. While there are five predefined alarm sounds, your imagination is the limit as to what sound bites can be used here.

To use the timers, you also need to set the duration of them, and that is what this tab is for. You can create folders for groups of alarms, and you can also just create individual timers. You can set timers as far as days away and as small as seconds; you can put a reminder message with it, make it display on the screen, and even choose the position of the text displayed when the timer ends.

The last of the tabs is where you would go to verify the firmware and software are up to date. We have taken on both for this review, and software comes out regularly, so you may want to check it often. This is also where you can obtain a single-click link to the online support, but sadly, with the Hermes E1 Gaming Combo, there are no software controls for the Demeter E2.
