Mac compatible?
Is the extra set of keycaps just a duplicate of the ones it already ships with?
Looking for a programmable Mini Macro pad with RGB, that is also hotswappable

This would be so cool in a powder-coated version like was released with MiTo's Canvas caps. I didn't know I wanted this until you brought it up!

check out the nano.slider at keebwerk.
Only a couple dollars cheaper than amazon (assembled) when you count shipping. Can save $10 to assemble it yourself. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
No usb-c?
Common its 2018 going on 2019.

It's the main feature holding me back from this board. I can't rationalize buying prior-gen tech for a keypad that I will keep for 10+ years.
anyone using this to get into ortho gaming?
xformulax
Probably not. It seems rather small. I use a Razer Tartarus and Basilisk, and I love them.
Are these backlight-able keycaps double shot or painted? It is hard to tell from the picture as IKBC/Vortex/Ducky offer double shot that have no grid underneath. AND.... Anyone get GMK working?
Any idea if this board is programmable on Linux? Not about to touch windows and couldn't give a crap about apple things.

I got this answer from the manufacturer :
Dear Hirson Thank you for contacting us. Yes, the macro key setting will store on the device, so you can use it on Linux, but some features like (Sync program, launch program) will not work in Linux)  Best Regards, Kent Chang MaxKeyboard

Thanks man... still leaves me uninterested as I would first need to find a computer that has windows on it. I don't want to have a dedicated computer system where the only task it has is to reprogram a single macro/keypad.
Finally had time to put it together. I really like the looks of it. I put some extra Nautilus keycaps on it where I could. There are a few people asking if this works with macOS. The default keymapping works OOTB. I have used Karabiner Elements in the past, but that isn't mapping the keys for this like it has for my dasKeyboard.
Update: I was mistaken. Karabiner Elements works fine for mapping this keypad. User error.
Anyway, it looks really nice and I'm happy with it. It didn't take much time to put together either.

That's good to hear. I have the smaller Falcon-8 and did a similar thing when assembling, seems like it might be easier without the single colour diodes to solder on. What are your plans for it since you're on MAC? Programme on windows or to keep it as is? Given it's wired and mechanical it might make a decent MAC gaming pad? Either way the default look really complements your other peripherals. Cheers for the info : )

Right now I'm just having fun with it. I've got a few artisan keycaps on order that might look good on it.
It shipped!!!!
Can anyone tell me the difference between between mx speeds and silents?
So, I can save a whole $1.75?!? Golly. Now I can finally afford that newspaper I've been saving up for.
Oh, wait. Assembled, that's $2.50 off! That's over 3%.
I guess I can save $8 if I didn't get the keycaps, but really ... why bother?

Dude... are you actually mentally disabled? I don't need a link to google; I know how to search for this product, that's how I found that Massdrop has offered it in the past. I've just been trying to ask what price Massdrop offers this product at since my first post here.
I guess you're deleting your comments out of shame now that you realize how much of an asshole you've been?
I'm not harassing you, you're the one acting like a complete ass. Massdrop works with the first party seller to negotiate a discounted price, so when I say "they" it doesn't matter how ambiguous I'm being because I'm clearly talking about the price that is represented on the website that we are currently posting on you unimaginable idiot.

I use this for game and work together.
Tekify
Where did you get those awesome action key caps?!
logos really ruin products
I would be looking for something just like this, but the fact that the plate is open on the sides and on the bottom really throws me off. Are there similar alternatives out there that anyone here would reccomend?
I've been wanted a nice numpad DIY kit. I never used my nautilus numpad keycaps for anything yet. Now they will have a home!
Can I set only specific keys as backlit in specific colours, or is it like in the Falcon-8 where keys aren't actually "individually" backlit and only part of a predefined pattern?
smileybarry
You can use the software to assign individual LED color in the customize lighting mode
I would buy this if there's an option with no switches cause I have my sweet sweet Zealios switches
Does this work on mac and bsd? The eight key one I have from MAX does not, just windows and linux.

Is it possible to create and update a new map without their software? (Are the map files are text based and you can upload them to the keyboard using only Mac?)
Eliad
Unfortunately no. You have to use their software to assign the map. However, I think you can run their software in Windows with bootcamp to build the map, and then it will work on Mac as the map is stored on the pad.
For gaming?

What games do you play and can you map all the keys required?
Vengeance
World of Warships. You can map any key to any key in their app. (There are 3 button at the bottom of the PCB for you to switch layers and light effects if you dont map any key to the layer switch key)
Hey guys, I did a quick review of this macropad. Overall, I think it's great! The software to configure it works pretty well and the microcontroller looks to be compatible with QMK (Someone please port it lol). I wish it was USB C, and that the case looked prettier.

I have a couple of questions:
1. Can I use plate-mounted switches with this kit? I would want to install the same switches in this as the ones in my keyboard, and I have plate-mounted switches.
2. Would it be a bad idea to try to assemble the DIY kit if I have basically no soldering experience, or is this a good project for me to learn on?
AGin
1. The alum case is the plate you mount switches to. In fact, the PCB does NOT support PCB mounted legs. 2. You will only have 40 pins to solder (vs. 120ish for a 60% keyboard). I would say it is a fun project. At least for me it is.
Is the software to configure this one as abysmally terrible as their Falcon 8?
buy this! this thing is amazing!
Received my MAX-20 yesterday, so far so good. Only criticism at the moment is that it's very tedious to program the keyboard through their app. I'm going to mess with the exported/imported layers which dumps to a standard .INI file format, and hopefully figure out how to speed things up for programming. I'm also going to contact MAX to see if they would be willing to publish their spec... would be cool to have that handy!

Pretty interested in your work. I've been enjoying mine, but programming a long macro or copying to another key/layer is tedious or impossible.
I hope MAX are planning to improve the software as for such a good product, it really is a let down...
AusGunz
If it supported QMK I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
I think I'm gonna but a piece of flat plastic and fit it right below the PCB just to cover the bottom, maybe with two more pieces for the two side, make holes for buttons/switches there as well.

I've used this thing for a day, and I'm definitely already planning a better "bottom" case for this - specifically a U-pan with a piece of acrylic as a light pipe to channel the backlights to the front and rear of the unit. I've got too much crap on my desk to worry about the circuit board being hit by something that will short it out.

Post a pic once you are done :) Better yet, make a short guide for modding it :)
Clears please.
lastzero
clear is the new brown!
Wondering a few things, I'll probably email maxkeyboard since this isn't really a good deal and wait for a reply but I figured I'd ask here in case anyone knew or so that the answers can be made public when discovered.
1. Are the Macros and/or Settings stored on the device or on the user's profile in the attached PC, or in public storage on the user's PC?
2. Any additional settings have been added since the video? I am looking for the ability to re-assign a pre-recorded macro to a different key, and block-of-text features, similar to the operation of Logitech G devices.
3. Any plans or mods seen to add pop-out feet? I'd like to see this as a feature since the horizontal option is cool but it would suck to have permanent feet in case elevation or rotation adjustments were desired. Even a clip-on solution would be cool because of the modularity given the design, and would add little to the cost.

Nice, that makes this more interesting.
I used the L1 and L2 keys as a Next and Previous Layer button. For example on layer 1, the L1 key changes to layer 5 and the L2 key changes to L2.
On Layer 2, the L1 key goes back to Layer 1 and the L2 key goes forward to layer 3 and so on...
I would buy this packed in a solid, preferably metal, box. A sheet of metal bent in a fancy manner does not attract me as a potential buyer. Nice as a hobby kit but this cannot make it to my office desk.

Check out the Ducky Pocket.
Liberty
Yeah, it's a dust magnet with this design.
Does this use number row scancodes or number pad scancodes?
Anfurny
It will use whichever you assign to it. The layout editor has a full keyboard and you choose which scancode or combination of scancodes you want each key to represent. Watch the third video, it shows how it's done.

Oops. Sorry. I totally didn't watch that video. Thanks!!! I think I may hop on this drop now.
