Clear key lenses keep your printed or hand written legends securely in place and protect them from wear while making it quick and easy to update them. The full travel keys have the same feel as your standard keyboard. A wide variety of key caps and key blockers make it easy to customize the XK-24 into a simple control surface like a bump bar or a live audio switcher.
MacroWorks 3.1 Software provides simple, intuitive programming for launching applications, opening files or accessing directories. Inserting special characters and symbols as Unicode text strings adds another new unique feature to the X-keys. The scripting language behind MW3 is VB.NET. The simple, straight forward language makes programming advanced features and customization for unique configurations easier than ever before. A new feature allows the user to easily create their own scriptlets to share or duplicate on other keys or devices.

Our new Pi3 firmware offers a host of new capabilities to the developer including USB joystick, keybaord and mouse end points and our newly developed Reflector feature. Our Reflector feature allows the developer to send outbound messages to the X-keys which can be reflected back to the Operating System in keyboard, mouse or joystick data stream.
A new feature offers glowing red or blue backlighting with adjustable intensity. The backlighting LEDs can be controlled with simple scripting through MW3 or messages from your software via our SDK. Each key has one blue and one red LED under it and the state of each LED is individually addressable.
Our Pi3 dongle feature offers OEMs a measure of security to protect software from piracy and tag an X-keys with a unique encrypted signature to ensure the developer is the sole provider of customized hardware.
