Total gaming domination. It’s easy with the right tools. Combining the world’s smartest gaming engineering with jaw-dropping design, the ROCCAT Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard hands you the power to own any game the easy way -- and be legend.
For the first time in gaming history your keyboard and mouse can team up to become an unstoppable fighting force – giving you the revolutionary power to command faster, easier and more effectively than ever before. That’s because ROCCAT’s exclusive ROCCAT Talk protocol allows the Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard and the ROCCAT Kone[+] high-performance gaming mouse to talk to each other – giving you a powerful set bonus that lets you execute mouse macros quickly and easily right from your keyboard. This groundbreaking technology works like a dream together with the exclusive Easy-Shift[+] technology. Simply use the Easy-Shift[+] key on your Isku to activate macros for both your keyboard and mouse -- an ingenious short-cut that lets you concentrate more on your game and less on controls. Your Kone[+] will even signal you with a light flash every time it’s chatting with the Isku – so you’ll know when the two are working together.
ROCCAT Talk also lets you take advantage of the exclusive Easy-Aim technology like never before. When your game demands precise marksmanship in sniper mode, simply press and hold a single keyboard key and Easy-Aim will instantly optimize the DPI setting on your Kone[+]. This two-handed custom marksmanship is the simplest and most convenient way ever to achieve pinpoint sniping accuracy. And it also frees up a Kone[+] button for another macro of your choice. Imagine the world’s best gaming mouse and the new king of gaming keyboards operating in perfect harmony – and doing your bidding on the battlefield. That’s what we call legendary gaming.
BE THE MASTER OF DARKNESS Backlit with ROCCAT Extreme Ice Blue Lighting in 6 adjustable brightness levels, the Isku makes it easy to always hit the right key -- even in low lighting. The Isku’s optimized illumination also means it’s perfect for avoiding eye strain during those long gaming sessions. Plus, you can program the Isku to automatically switch its lights off if you haven’t hit a key for a length of time of your choosing – great for when you want to take a break from your game.
HUNT YOUR PREY INSTEAD OF HUNTING FOR KEYS The Isku is the only keyboard in the world to feature the groundbreaking Easy-Shift[+] technology, which offers you the wonder of 36 easily-customizable and macros strategically positioned in 3 spots in the easy-to-find WASD zone. This means you can fire off orders without ever having to re-adjust your hand position – so you won’t have to take your eyes off the screen to look for keys. Simple and ingenious. And because the Easy-Shift[+] key works just like the standard shift key, activating your macros is as simple as typing an uppercase letter.
THREE UNIQUE EASY-SHIFT[+] ZONES The Easy-Shift[+] zone gives you an impressive 28 macros keys – including 8 dedicated keys that can be doubly programmed (M1-M5 five keys are on the left side, T1-T3 three keys are located under the spacebar). Plus, the ability to instantly switch between 5 profiles lets you enjoy up to a whopping 180 macros – enough customization to meet even the most demanding warrior’s needs.
RECORD MACROS MID-ACTION New enhanced Macro Live! technology makes in-game macro recording a joy. Simply hit the dedicated Macro Live! Recording button and let the handy new Sound Feedback tool talk you through the quick and easy recording process, step by step. You can program up to an amazing 500 actions for each of the 180 macros – giving you the freedom to lay down any orders you can dream up. If recording macros using a menu-based system is more your style then ROCCAT’s world-famous Macro Manager software is just what you want. The award-winning Macro Manager lets you record and fine-tune your macros with incredible precision -- and with intuitive ease thanks to a gorgeous and simple-to-use interface. The new Loop Function even lets you repeat your settings up to an incredible 255 times. And the internationally-adored program even comes with presets for top games and office apps -- so you can enjoy your favorites with no wait.
CONTROL YOUR MEDIA THE EASY WAY The Isku features a row of 8 fully-configurable media keys, optimally positioned at the top of the keyboard -- for quick and easy access to 25 handy functions of your choice. It also features 12 programmable F keys, giving you a full range of customization options.
BE IMPRESSED WITH EVERY PRESS The Isku boasts medium height keys with fully-optimized key architecture, giving you a perfect striking surface and ideal keystroke response -- for finger action that feels right every time. The 1000Hz polling rate also ensures ultra-fast keyboard response with no lag, so your commands are carried out instantaneously. And advanced anti-ghosting technology means multiple keys can be depressed simultaneously -- making sure you can take full advantage of every complex command at your disposal.
