Unfortunately there's not been much info about this drop. All that can be gathered from this diagram is that the PCB presumably supports these layouts. However there may be an included plate as well that might limit the possible layouts. Though worst case scenario you could omit the plate and use PCB mount switches.
Hopefully Massdrop can give some more info to clear it up.

Thank you!

For those of you that are looking for a barebones option - whether for the assembled or kits I have talked to our suppliers, they are more than happy to support that. However, since we cannot modify the structure of this drop (can only add in items but not split), I will create a separate barebones drop for those who are interested :) Hope this helps.
Cheers, Xi

The mistake is mine, i misread your comment as question and not as a wish. My bad!
Whatever you like and prefer, my answer had been aimed at, what is offered at checkout stock. "Closest" Cherry to Topre doesn't exist for me, reds and blacks without tactility are even less close, but to each his own!
Edit: You edited the picture in, i edit a Plus/Like for those nice boards :)
XiK
any news on this?
:( is there any update?
Any more details than just "delayed"?
Would it be possible to get an update on the estimated ship date for this drop? Even if that estimate is today, Monday the 15th, it would be nice to have realistic expectation for arrival. Thanks
Kavick
It's delayed, but we don't know how long.
SecretSquirrel
Indeed, just saw the Email with the updates. Glad for the info. BTW for those that didn't see or receive the Email, "Due to an unexpected delay, these orders may ship later than the original estimated ship date. Our apologies for any inconvenience. If we find that the drop is going to be delayed by more than 30 days, we will let you know."
can we get a drop update..?
Kerosss
Expect a drop update next Monday. If it doesn't ship by the original estimated date they'll let us know.
Does anyone know what firmware this is? I have seen nothing on QMK....
Dead_Encryption
Nevermind, I have discovered that using the Melody96 Firmware to start with works. If anyone has any questions about it, please feel free to check out the VOD on my twitch stream. https://www.twitch.tv/dead_encryption
Thanks!
In agony over having missed this drop. I really hope there is another drop for this. :(
If we got BOX switches in one of these, will they be from the new stock with updated stems?
Why not just get a Kira instead..?

" In case you need to replace a defective switch or your tastes in key actuation change, you don't have to buy a whole new keeb. " Fair point, but to late for me, having way to "many" keyboards, been stuck in the rabbithole for years now. If a switch "brakes", no problem for me to (de)solder a new one, part of the fun.
Makami
lol, yes, a rabbithole indeed :)
Happy typing!
Would have joined this if it had an option for Zealios!
@XiK You know how I love those NovelKeys BOX Royal switches...Any chance they can be a switch option for this drop since we can't get a No Switch option??? :)
JJ88
This time the GB has set as switches included.Next time will get non switch options
nym001
When will the next drop be?
As a ham-fisted mono-browed ape, I wish companies would just make 96 key layout Keyboards
Is this connected to YDMK in any way? Because this looks EXACTLY like the Melody96, minus the sidecuts.

This board only supports 1 layer of programming? I figured with QMK it would support multiple.
ChitownM2
I don't think that's what was meant
This or the Kira board from kono?

If you want more stable keyboard,this one is a good option as well.
nym001
Stable in what way? Like the firmware or something else?
If you order the diy kit, what layout of keycaps do you get?
bmass
The one pictured for 99.99 ... % If you want an ISO enter for example you gotta have a keycapset at home fitting your layout.
bmass
The keycaps supported the layout 3456789 as below
https://imgur.com/a/FOqnzyf
Are the keycaps the same regardless of which option you choose? OEM, Cherry, & DSA are all made by different vendors so I'm assuming that the colors and fonts would all be slightly different depending on which option you choose?
Very high value product.
looks very similar to Kira. At a lower cost of course.

Now GB can't change information,will publish a GB in next 2 weeks to choose all separately as your wish
nym001
I truly hope this happens. Decided not to join this GB because I needed a barebones option to customize it to my liking.
any info on included keycaps (layout)?
I've been looking for a 96-key keyboard for a while now and this one looks perfect. Only problem I'm having is that how do I order an assembled kit with the layout that I want? And if the keycaps to my preferred layout will be provided? If anyone knows how to order an assembled kit with your preferred layout please let me know.

Yeah, I agree. I can do it, but the $15 for an assembled board was definitely worth it to NOT have to, but if that's the only way to get the switch layout I want then I'll have to pass on assembly.
Kerosss
You can leave the layout you want from below image when checkout.The GB starts little rush and don't provide enough info and now the information can't change already

Does this keyboard have media functions?
excalibruh
Yes and No (because keymapping/Fn-layer delivered) isn't mentioned/shown.
Yes, due to programmability: https://mechkeys.ca/pages/qmk-programming-how-to you're free to make it your very own mk regarding your needs. You don't need the numpad, you could switch 7 to volume down as example ..... You need the numpad once a year, 7=volume down - Fn+7=7. Hope you get the point.
No, maybe not at delivery, we don't know which functions are programmed stock, might be good to give this information to us.
Programming might be a bit overwhelming for beginners, but there should be folks enough willing to help, you just have to ask!
excalibruh
Do you mean Vol+- close open etc?If so,then yes.It's qmk PCB so you can define it as your wish
Is the pictured layout the only supported layout by the plate/PCB?
Can you please add pictures of the plate/PCB?
Joshimitsu
Indeed except split space,all layout is supported.This should satisfy most customers request
Can the numpad '+' be split to two 1u's?
zinger0129
Yes sure
Really need more spec information: 1) Info on bottom case - is it acryl, aluminum, or inclined aluminum. Whether weight is included. 2) Picture of PCB to tell quality and supported layouts (or equivalent information) 3) How plate is attached to case? Schematic would be nice.
OracleKev
1)There is only a layer aluminum case,it's not 2 layer mounted like Melody 96.There is no weight for this keyboard 2)PCB is almost the same as Melody 96,the F1 is little far away from USB port to avoid soldering problem 3)The plate is screwed to the bottom of the case.Namely the screw hole is in the middle of the plate not side.
This layout would flare my autism right up.
Could we please, for the love of god, see one 104-key, fullsize, not compacted, ANSI standard, 104-key, 100% aluminium keyboard made and distributed on this forum.

Thanks for your suggestion Hikasaki. A far as I know the MF108's weak USB connector issue was never resolved. I also don't need the backlighting on that model. Otherwise it looks good, but I think we need a designer to really put some care and attention into a 104-key KB body that can cater to people's various PCB and switch preferences.
mjl2009
It's been resolved with V.2, works great. I have both the MF108 as well as the MF87, both V2
Can we get some pictures of this disassembled? Maybe a shot of the PCB?

The first pile won't support split spacebar,since new PCB need to test for long time again.Next pile will consider split space bar
nym001
Do you have a render or picture of the PCB? Support for LEDs?
Would love to see something like this, 60% plus F-Row. Numlock for integrated Numpad, Fn+Shift, Win, Option and Ctrl for Arrowkeys.

Ty for your answer!
" Guess its 60% though."
That's the "problem", no f-row.
Very interested! I'd prefer the full-sized shift key on the right but that's just my opinion. Just let us configure our keys, please ;-) I'd love to replace that num lock / del with page up / down!
mediocre switch selection imo?
and laser engraved caps that aren't optional... 🤢
