Driver software

K95_18_driver_main

The keyboard macro customizable software is completely optional because the K95 is functional without the software. Even macro keys commands can be created and stored onboard without the software. To do so, press the Macro Record button, press a macro, type on the keyboard, then press the Macro Record again to save a command.

The software confers the benefit of a graphic interface with menus, editing macro commands, and advanced commands. The software can be downloaded from the Vengeance K95 product page.

The software interface is laid out in sections. To the left is a visual recreation of the 18 macro keys, in the middle is a column that displays the command sequence of a selected macro key, and tabs that bring up their corresponding options. On the top are redundant profile selectors and backlight brightness setting.

Recorded macros can be edited a great deal. Keystrokes can be rearranged, rekeyed, or deleted.

Playback Options permits changes to macro repeat parameters. A macro can be repeated a set number of times, repeated constantly while the key is held down, or repeated constantly until turned off with a second macro key press.

    So, I’m wondering what you thought about programming the macros? Did you test this? Do you agree with the claim of on-the-fly programming?
