HERA Software

Key assignments are where you go to swap some functionality like the Function key for the Windows key, enable consecutive mode, and assign any key a function from a drop-down menu of nine choices. Things like launching programs, bringing up HERA software, disabling and remapping.

Macro Management is where you go to program the Macros, and after completion, can be used through other menus. There are six Macros in the list when opened, but to add one click on create macro near the bottom. After naming it, the commands at the top of the right box will illuminate to press the record button. Do your thing, stop recording, and try it. If it fails, there are a full set of editing tools, with time delays, to perfect it.

Luminance is where you go to tinker with the RGB LEDs. The keyboard view will show a live preview of what you are trying to accomplish. The three small keyboards are the base layers to start with, and there are many ways to change static colors or use some of the modes offered. It even appears that images can be uploaded, as long as the size and format are correct.

For the forgetful ones out there, there is also a section for timers! In this menu, you may select a key to start the timer, choose a sound, and even how the time is to alert you once turned on!

If you plan to use sounds for the timers that are custom, you will need to visit the Sound File Edit menu first. This is where you can record and upload sound files, edit them for longevity, even name and store them!

The timer setting section is also a bit behind in order, as those wanting custom timers will need to go here before using it in the Assign menu. Timers can run for days, or as little as a few seconds, can have reminders applied, will display on the screen with a custom prompt, and even the font size can change to ensure you notice the message!

Gamdias also includes an update section to ensure you are using the latest firmware and software. One click on the check for updates highlighted text, and it will show you where you stand.
