The Isku features ROCCAT's Easy-Shift[+] technology, which offers 36 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.
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 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.
Programmable Thumb Macro Keys
ROCCAT 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.
Record Macros Mid-Action or Whenever
New enhanced Macro Live! technology makes in-game macro recording easy. 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 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.
If recording macros using a menu-based system is more your style, ROCCAT's Macro Manager software is just what you want. The Macro Manager lets you record and fine-tune your macros with incredible precision and with intuitive ease thanks to a simple-to-use interface. The new 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.
Save your favorite settings--button configurations, lighting level, DPI preference, and more--in five handy profile slots and 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 5 bright LED profile indicators. And with the clever Sound Feedback tool, the world-famous 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 ice blue backlighting in six 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.
Comfort Wrist Rest
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 and you'll find five rubberized non-slip gaming boots and two 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.
Optimized Key Height
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 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.
Keep Cables Hidden
Your headset and mouse cables can now easily be tidied away using the handy cable channels under the Isku.
The Isku comes standard with the ROCCAT timer, which gives you an audible countdown timer for any event you wish. Among other uses, you'll always know exactly how long it'll be before something re-spawns on the battlefield.
Configurable Media Keys
The Isku features a row of eight 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.
