CREATE THE MOST FEARSOME ALLIANCE GAMING HAS EVER SEEN
For the first time in gaming history your keyboard and mouse can team up to become an unstoppable fighting force – giving you the revolutionary power to command faster, easier and more effectively than ever before. That’s because our exclusive ROCCAT Talk protocol allows the Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard and the ROCCAT Kone[+] high-performance gaming mouse to talk to each other – giving you a powerful set bonus that lets you execute mouse macros quickly and easily right from your keyboard.
This groundbreaking technology works like a dream together with our exclusive Easy-Shift[+] technology. Simply use the Easy-Shift[+] key on your Isku to activate macros for both your keyboard and mouse -- an ingenious short-cut that lets you concentrate more on your game and less on controls. Your Kone[+] will even signal you with a light flash every time it’s chatting with the Isku – so you’ll know when the two are working together. ROCCAT Talk also lets you take advantage of our exclusive Easy-Aim technology like never before. When your game demands precise marksmanship in sniper mode, simply press and hold a single keyboard key and Easy-Aim will instantly optimize the DPI setting on your Kone[+]. This two-handed custom marksmanship is the simplest and most convenient way ever to achieve pinpoint sniping accuracy. And it also frees up a Kone[+] button for another macro of your choice. Imagine the world’s best gaming mouse and the new king of gaming keyboards operating in perfect harmony – and doing your bidding on the battlefield. That’s what we call legendary gaming. And the Kone[+] / Isku partnership is just the beginning. Stay tuned for more exciting ROCCAT Talk coalitions in the future.
HUNT YOUR PREY INSTEAD OF HUNTING FOR KEYS
The Isku is the only keyboard in the world to feature our groundbreaking Easy-Shift[+] technology, which offers you the wonder of 36 easily-customizable macros strategically positioned in 3 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. Simple and ingenious. And 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 8 dedicated keys that can be doubly programmed. Plus, the ability to instantly switch between 5 profiles lets you enjoy up to a whopping 180 macros – enough customization to meet even the most demanding warrior’s needs.
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 a joy. 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 an amazing 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 then our world-famous 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 with intuitive ease thanks to a gorgeous and simple-to-use interface. The new Loop Function even lets you repeat your settings up to an incredible 255 times. And the internationally-adored program even 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 – button configurations, lighting level, DPI preference, etc. — in 5 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.
BE THE MASTER OF DARKNESS
Backlit with ROCCAT Extreme Ice Blue Lighting 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.
STAY LOCKED AND LOADED
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.
BE IMPRESSED WITH EVERY PRESS
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 ultra-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.
CURE CABLE CHAOS
Your headset and mouse cables can now easily be tidied away using the handy cable channels under the Isku. And no cable mess means less to get in the way of you enjoying your game.
KNOW EXACTLY WHEN THE SPAWN ARRIVES
The Isku comes standard with the ingenious ROCCAT Timer, which gives you a handy 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 – valuable info you can exploit for a tactical advantage.
