This is gorgeous! What kit was this if it was one?
Kiroshima
Hello, glad you like it (even though some caps need some cleaning, looking closer :)).
This is a hard question, we're talking about more than 3 years ago and old drop pages don't exist anymore, regarding childsets given at that time. I've bought 19 sets in total, around 15 different ones in two rounds/drops. This should be common, mods, multimedia, bonus novelties and extra os (i guess!).
Never gone so far before or afterwards, but Granite had been a Masterpiece (and still is) at that time, clean, simple, timeless and elegant, understatement in a very good way for me!
Cheers
There is no picture on the back?
Has anyone else had any problems with the USB port? Mine seems busted.
At first it worked fine, then it started disconnecting from Windows, but the LED's were still on. It only worked if I applied downward pressure on the connector. Now it's a real hit and miss even with the downward pressure.

Mine suddenly failed overnight, and I suspect the usb but I haven’t done any very in depth troubleshooting yet
Alright since Massdrop still didn't fix the stupid bug on this platform, I'll ask my question here.

This is the layout I want with for the NYM96 on the QMK config page, it is recommended to select the melody96 problem I have here is, that I do not have a choice to change the layout to anything else than the standard one provided (i'd like to toggle with numlock to the arrow cluster) But I don't get to do that like this. Anyone have an idea what to do here?

What if you map numlock to TG(x) and under layer x, map the numbers keys to the firectional keys you want.
giraid
That is exactly what I ended up doing. Now trying to disable the underlighting, no need for that.
I find that 32u4's C6, C7 and B5 control the NUM lock, CAPS lock and ScrLock LED indicators. NUM lock and CAPS lock act well. But I can't find out where ScrLock LED is. please tell me where ScrLock LED is.
Ordered a set of 100 68g Outemu SKY switches, hot swap sockets, 6 Cherry stabs, and a Cherry MX locking switch. Now we play the waiting game.
TWD-Industries
Out of curiosity, which hot-swap sockets did you go with? Assuming the NYM84 PCB is similarly designed, I'm considering this option as well.
Thanks!
beyondesign
/u/hbheroinbob has Outemu's sockets on hand that he included with my order, so I went with those. They are too tight for most of the other switch brands, but if you're crafty, there are ways around it.

Anybody know if this uses the same PCB as the Melody96?
PikaJoyce
There are two types. Gold pad QMK type C and Silver pad mini B. melody 96 Gold pad QMK type C and NYM96 are same.

If I get the unassembled version of this keyboard what all is necessary to assemble it? Will I have to solder the switches or what?
Bukkakegod
You will have to purchase switches if you don't get them here, and you will have to solder them in place. You will also need a compatible keycap set, namely one that includes a 1.75u Shift key, and some 1u bottom row modifiers (or 1u alternatives, such as artisans).
I really like the layout and want a 96-key like this. The thing is, the future is now—2020 is right around the corner: RGB and Bluetooth and I’ll buy.

Got it. Apple doesnt even offer a backlit wireless kbd, why should anyone else?
(Well, take a look at IC’s X-1! https://www.instagram.com/p/Bl_dTLOjcd1)
RGB 96-key at least
Ughh
Kira is the only readily available (on pre-order, anyway) RGB 96-key I've seen lately. Most that I've dealt with only support single LED backlighting. This is mostly due to layout variables (ISO, WKL, etc), which is why good RGB backlighting is often SMD with a fixed layout.
Is there any light indicate if the Caps Lock is on or off?
Kaikai10
Nope, but you can solder a led onto the switch and program to like so.
Has anyone tried to connect this board with usb-c to usb-c cables? It doesn't seem to work for me on mbp. Haven't tried windows yet. Usb-a to usb-c works fine by the way.
giraid
Most of these board based on the 32u4 controller dont support c to c. You are going to have to use an a to c cable. I have also had issue with usb 3.0 cables
rockydbull
Do you know if it is due to how the 32u4 works, or if it's just not implemented by most vendors ? I would be more than happy if the connection from typeC to typeC would function with a simple mod.
Is this or the red scarf III better?
anonymouss
Pretty sure there is a noticeable cost difference. So I guess it depends on if you're fine with the looks of this, or are willing to spend the extra for the RSIII underglow.
anonymouss
RSIII deluxe is for sure nicer :)
Any chance we could buy the original key caps too 😍
Mega__Man
just get a "dolch" key set, very similar
Are the Cherry MX switches re-tooled version?Thx!

Thank you!
Yeah it's weird that I haven't heard anything about the retooling until I did some googling after your reply.
I've actually bought two boards with MX Blacks in them this year and thought they felt unusually smooth, but was chalking it up as my imagination.
Do you have any plan of NYM65 (65% keyboard)?
I'm new to mechanical keyboards and want to try to assemble this kit myself. I read below that I will need to solder the switches, does it come with instructions on how to assemble everything together? If not, are there instructions online I can use? TIA

Thanks for all the help. Another question is what kind of keycaps do I need to complete this keyboard?
hdub8817
Any Cherry MX compatible keycaps, but you will also need a 1.75u Shift key, 1u zero key, and potentially 3 1u bottom modifiers (although I'm sure you could use just about anything for those). This means you can't just use any normal set of ANSI standard keycaps, but there are options out there for a 1.75u Shift or alternative. Unless you don't care about the arrow keys, and switch the layout to ANSI standard.
Is it possible to purchase without keycaps?
sixty_plus
Well, yes. Since this is barebones kit, no keycaps included.
diersa
Even for the assembled option? I have a keycap set I want to put on this and don't really want more keycaps.

I'd purchase this if hotswap was an option. Doesn't seem that difficult to rebind/ignore key positions in software even with hotswap sockets.

I'm sure it holds interest for some, but it was already a failure to others in terms of bringing a better tactile switch to market. Only thing I'd be interested in are the Hako Royal hybrids that novelkeys put up not long ago. The actual draw for the Kira was a good 96-key with a more interesting underglow. Long before there were such advances in hotswappable PCBs, it was one of the few 96-keys on the potential market (only to have everyone else bring competitive, affordable kits to market before it).
Cyphre
More options in the market is for our benefit in the end, which is great. When this drop first appeared, I was already in for A Kira but that changed and here I am, in for a kit and a hefty alu case to boot.
RGB & underglow is a bonus but I prefer understated.
I think I know the answer to this but is grey the only color?
Anyone know of a 96 key in color with the same value?

What's the surface treatment on the case? Is it anodized?
Hot/laser pink
Sorry if asked 40 times before. Where does one get the key caps? I see a PITA with right shift and bottom row.
MagicSmoke
Keycaps in general? Any GMK set will cover it. Older SA sets will require tsafox/tsangan modifiers (some of the newer sets had the basics included in the base kit). DSA or XDA I'm sure there are options, depending on the set. The 96-key layout includes non-standard keys. However, if you assemble this with no arrow keys in mind it will take standard keys.
Those specific keycaps in the picture? They were included in the full keyboard (rather than barebones kit) drop they did some months ago.
I have a very beginner question if you guys don't mind, this is going to be my first assembled style keyboard, and it seems like I will need to 'flash' it with QMK software, is there a step by step guide somewhere for this specific keyboard so I know what to do when it arrives? Thanks for your help in advance :D

Quick Google. Looks like the PCB is AKA Melody96 which uses an ATmega 32U4. This comes with factory bootloader (Unless the assembler installs the QMK via SPI and erases bootloader.) So it uses standard Device Firmware Update to flash. 1. Put board into DFU with switch On A Macintosh command line....... 2. Erase: dfu-programmer atmega32u4 erase 3. Flash: dfu-programmer atmega32u4 flash yourQMKcode.hex
This should help: https://mechkeys.ca/pages/qmk-programming-how-to

@giraid @Cyphre @MagicSmoke Thanks for the reply, very happy it comes with a default layout, I am most likely just going to use it as is! Super helpful answers guys!
No Gateron Blacks?!? D:
I know it's not hot swappable out of the box, but does this support Kailh hot swap sockets or Hotlites?

Alternatively, there is Kira @ Kono store and Aurora 96 @ zfrontier that offers hotswappable and RGB. If you absolutely want to avoid soldering and want a 96 keeb. ;)
Hikasaki
Aurora 96 looks pretty interesting, and the price doesn't seem too bad for what you get. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of buzz around it though. Should I be worried that I've never heard of it? I know Input Club's Kira has been all over the place, but I just don't know if I am sold on the bottom of the case being a plastic light diffuser. I wish the case was all metal, like the Aurora is.
Got mine today, first impression, very nice, but that dent/scratch is killing me. It's like a new screen with a dead pixel, some folks don't care, others can't overlook it.

Awesome support!
Is there from the keyboard company here. I see non of the questions being answered here!
If you see this please answer if this is hot swappable. Thanks

RxKey
If you are comfortable with soldering, mill-max sockets fit great but they need to be soldered in.
RxKey
Its not hotswapable
Does the layout support not having the arrow keys, i.e. a traditional key layout for the right shift, ctrl, etc.
Load 3 more comments
Nice trick for those is to use a PCB mounted switch there, assuming your switch of choice is available in that option. I know a lot of Kailh switches aren't, but whenever I do a build that has spots like that I'll either pick up a couple extra switches in the PCB mounted version, or not clip the legs off of the ones that ship with them by default (like Zealios).
LevelSteam
Good trick, the option is given. That switch isn't soldered, yet, just wanted newbies being aware of that "problem".
Can the PCB be made hot swapable?
AlukardPR
Only in the sense that any pcb can be made hotswapable with holtites or millmax sockets which are just as much work as soldering (and in some cases more work)
AlukardPR
Not with holtites: the PCB holes are too big.
