    Which color key switch is right for me?

    Opting between the MX Brown and MX Quiet Red mechanical key switches offers excellent choices.

    For newcomers to mechanical keyboards, the typing feel of both Brown and Red switches is notably similar. Boasting low activation force and exceptional typing feel, either switch provides a satisfying experience.

    Consider the MX Quiet Red switches, especially if you're in an office environment. These switches come equipped with built-in sound-dampeners, significantly reducing the noise commonly associated with mechanical key switches. It's the perfect blend of tactile response without the unnecessary clatter.

    What's the big deal about mechanical keyboards?

    Why use a split keyboard?

    Tailor the Freestyle Pro for a more ergonomic typing experience

    Diverging from traditional single-piece keyboards and immobile split ergonomic keyboards, users have the flexibility to disengage or "splay" the key modules, eliminating detrimental wrist bending based on their unique body type and typing stance. The separated configuration and the standard 20" connecting cable cater to a diverse spectrum of body sizes, accommodating individuals ranging from petite to large-framed.

    What is the adaption time?

    Adapting to the Freestyle Pro is a breeze

    The Freestyle Pro mechanical ergonomic keyboard boasts a familiar layout, ensuring a brief adjustment period for touch-typists. We recommend initiating with the key modules in close proximity and the lowest tenting setting, gradually expanding the configuration until you discover the ideal setup for your body. Keep in mind that every key on the Freestyle Pro is customizable, allowing you to rearrange them to align with your workflow seamlessly.

    Which tenting accessories should I get?

    It all boils down to your preference for palm support

    The Freestyle Pro keyboard offers two tenting accessories: the VIP3 and V3 Pro kits, both enabling tenting at 5˚, 10˚, and 15˚ angles. Opt for the VIP3 Pro Kit if you prefer added comfort with included palm supports and cushioned pads. Alternatively, go for the V3 Pro Kit for tenting without palm supports (please note that it's not compatible with them). The choice of using palm supports is subjective, but it's worth noting that the VIP3 Pro kit tends to be more popular among Freestyle Pro users.

    Will my Freestyle2 accessories fit the Freestyle Pro?

    The accessories for the Freestyle 2 might seem identical in appearance and functionality to those of the Freestyle Pro, but they won't snugly fit your Freestyle Pro.

    Blame it on the mechanical switches – their introduction prompted a tweak in the mounting points for all tenting accessories. So, for you Pro users out there, the path to accessory bliss involves snagging Pro-specific gear like the VIP3 Pro Tenting Kit (AC925), the V3 Pro Tenting Kit (AC930), and the Pro Palm Supports (AC906). Happy accessorizing!

    Why aren't accessories included?

    Similar to its predecessor, the Freestyle Pro mechanical ergonomic keyboard is all about being fully modular, catering to each individual's preferences. This means you have the liberty to cherry-pick the accessories and configuration that perfectly suits you, without being tethered to paying for parts you don't require. It's all about customization and making it uniquely yours.

    How to record a macro

    The Freestyle Pro stands out as a leading macro keyboard, leveraging the SmartSet Engine for intuitive macro creation and execution. Macros can be recorded directly on the device using the dedicated Macro key or customized using the SmartSet.


    Initiate on-the-fly macro recording by tapping the dedicated Macro key to enter Macro Programming Mode. Any of the 95 keys on the Freestyle Pro can serve as a macro trigger. Modify pre-programmed hotkeys or assign macros to unused keys. If all keys are occupied, opt for a 2-key combination using any modifier key (Shift, Alt, Control, Windows, Command) with a non-modifier key.

    Once the macro trigger is set, type the desired macro contents on the keyboard. Each macro can capture up to 300 keystrokes. Exit Macro Programming Mode by tapping the Macro key upon completing the recording.


    Execute macros effortlessly by tapping the assigned trigger key or key combination. It's a seamless process designed for practicality.
