Before I mentioned the five macro keys on the left side of the keyboard, I’m sure you are curious how you go about programing them. Coming from the 710+ from Logitech before this, I was a little spoiled with having an on the fly macro programing. But even so once I downloaded the Triggers software off of their website and installed it I was ready to setup the Trigger. I should point out that when you download the software you are going to get a .rar file. It would be much easier if the download was for an executable or at least a .zip file that doesn’t require any other program to open.
Although the software version had changed, there weren’t any noticeable differences going from the Trigger software before to now, at least visually. That isn’t really a bad thing though; I actually had no problem with the software’s look or functions. I did have an issue where before with how the software starts minimized and I had that same issue once again. Outside of that issue I loved the software. It’s broken up into three tabs, the main page, a profile page, and the macro studio.
The main page of the software greats you with a full keyboard layout and each and every key is clickable. Once you click on a key you can assign its functionality from single key programs, macros, or even launch a program. I love that this isn’t limited to just the macro keys, that means for example that you can rebind all of your F keys and number pad for use in game and then just flip to that profile before you get in game.
The Macro studio in the Triggers software is interesting. I love how they lay out your macro’s in a way similar to movie or audio production software. You can manually input your macro’s or you can also record them from your key presses as well. The recording function will record in real time or if you would like “god” mode, where it ignores the time between key presses.
