Software

Once downloaded, the software first does a software and firmware check, and we took an update to both before we saw this window. Once it is open, the keyboard tab is clicked, and we are in customize mode. This is where you can add profiles, name them, assign them, and even remap the entire 104-key layout, excluding any of the membrane switches.

When it comes to remapping the keyboard, there are a few options to go to. They can be assigned to Macros, media, key functions, launching applications, swapping profiles, or disable a key. Sadly, we do not see an easy way for mouse functions, unless you use a Macro to do so.

Speaking of Macros, we have now entered the Macro Editor section. Select a profile you want the Macro on, describe it, name it, import, export, it's all there.

Delays are another option to choose, and once ready click on the record button. Enter the commands, and they will show in the black box. Once done click stop, and afterward, there are options to edit the Macro if need be.

Even with the lighting changes, you will want to pick a profile to apply it to first, and you can also name the color profile. The image of the keyboard displays settings in real-time when using solid colors, or one of the twelve various RGB LED modes offered in the drop-down box.

Some of the modes allow for customization, and the image of the keyboard becomes the selection tool as to what color is applied where. At the bottom, there are all of the options one could need to make an RGB LED profile precisely what you were looking for.
