From the Manufacturer
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.
Combine Devices for More Power
ROCCAT Talk lets your compatible ROCCAT gaming devices join forces for amazing Set Bonus advantages that let you play faster, win more and enjoy a more intense game.
The ROCCAT Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard, the Kone XTD and the Kone Pure are the world's first devices to be connected with the ROCCAT Talk protocol.
For example, ROCCAT Talk lets you take advantage of exclusive Easy-Shift[+] technology. Now you can use the Easy-Shift[+] key on your Isku to activate macros for both the keyboard and mouse. It's a one-stop short-cut that makes giving orders quicker and easier.
ROCCAT Talk also lets you use ROCCAT's exclusive Easy-Aim technology when playing with the Isku and the Kone XTD or Kone Pure. When you need precise marksmanship in sniper mode, just press and hold a single Isku key and Easy-Aim will instantly optimize the DPI setting on your Kone XTD or Kone Pure. This two-handed team marksmanship is the most convenient way ever to be the deadliest sniper in the 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 36 easily-customizable macros strategically positioned in three 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.
Because the Easy-Shift[+] key works just like the standard shift key, activating your macros is as simple as typing an uppercase letter.
The Easy-Shift[+] zone gives you an impressive 28 macros keys – including eight dedicated keys that can be doubly programmed. Plus, the ability to instantly switch between five profiles lets you enjoy up to 180 macros.
Get Your Thumbs Into the Fight
Are all your digits in? Now you can give your thumbs something useful to do instead of just hovering over the spacebar. Our ROCCAT scientists put three individually-programmable Thumbster macro keys right below the Isku’s spacebar -- each easily activated with a quick thumb strike. Perfect for casting a lightning-quick healing spell in the middle of a tough fight. Brilliant for a rapid weapon change. Think of your thumbs as two new eager allies. Thumbs up to that.
Record Macros Mid-Action
New enhanced Macro Live! technology makes in-game macro recording easy. Simply hit the dedicated Macro Live! Recording button and let the Sound Feedback tool talk you through the quick and easy recording process, step by step. You can program up to 500 actions for each of the 180 macros, giving you the freedom to lay down any orders you can dream up. And you won’t have to leave your game to do it.
Record Macros at Your Leisure
If recording macros using a menu-based system is more your style, the 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 intuitive ease thanks to a simple-to-use interface. The Loop Function even lets you repeat your settings up to 255 times. The program also comes with presets for top games and office apps so you can enjoy your favorites with no wait.
Jump Into the Fray Right Away
Save your favorite settings such as button configurations, lighting level, DPI preference, and more in five profile slots. Activate each instantaneously with the simple press of a button so you can game your way with speed and ease. You’ll always know which profile you’ve chosen thanks to five bright LED profile indicators. And with the Sound Feedback tool, the ROCCAT Voice will even tell you which profile you’ve selected. You can even set a profile for Windows which the Isku will automatically switch back to when you’ve finished gaming.
Thanks to its off-white UV-coated keys and its extreme ice blue backlighting 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. And did we mention Isku’s keyboard illumination simply looks awesome?
Pamper Your Wrists
The Isku’s Integrated Extra-Large Granular Wrist Rest acts like a sofa for your hands, providing perfect stability and comfort so you can avoid wrist fatigue even when gaming into the wee hours. Its advanced granular surface also enables fast, yet controlled, lateral movement for optimized play even during the most hectic battles.
Isku Stays Put
Flip the Isku over (don’t worry, it won’t bite) and you’ll find 5 rubberized Non-Slip Gaming Boots and 2 rubberized Lock-Fast Gaming Feet. This means the Isku stays put -- even during the most intense play session. The retractable gaming feet also position the Isku at the ideal gaming angle of 5.90 degrees – ensuring the quickest key activation and best typing comfort possible.
