This keyboard is fully programmable via hardware so no software is needed, just plug it in and start building macros. Since all of the programming happens on the keyboard, you can plug it into any computer and take your custom layouts wherever you go, all settings are saved on the onboard memory.
Here's an example of customization:
If you want to program A as 123 starts by entering the programming mode by pressing FN + Right CTRL then the A key, then 1,2,3 and finish by pressing PN. At this point you can continue to program macros or end the programming mode, if you wish to continue programming, for example set FN + A to register 456, press FN + A then 4,5,6 and finish by pressing PN. If you want to exit the programming mode simply press FN + Right CTRL.
In addition to all the programming, there are 6 DIP switches on the back:
