Product Description

Are you a professional working with video, audio, picture, CAD or similar software?
Or a gamer, programmer, enthusiast, designer, office worker or editor?

Then you surely know the "problem" of endless key commands.
The new EK-128 offers 128 freely programmable keys.
Each one can be assigned with a complex keycommand of your choice.
Never forget a key command again - no need to remember those anymore ! Boost your speed.

An example:
You place the keycommand strg+alt+c to the "button 1" of the EK-128.
Now you just have to hit the "button 1" to run this key command.
strg+alt+c will automatically be "typed".
Extremly useful for often used, complex or difficult-to-remember key commands.
It is also possible to open programs with the touch of a button.

Program compatibility:
WINDOWS ONLY - NO APPLE SUPPORT.
Because the EK-128 is recognized by Windows as a keyboard device it will works with any program using key commands
For example with:

Avid Pro Tools, Media Composer, Sony Vegas, Acid, Adobe Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Premiere, After Effects, The Foundry NUKE, Eyeon Fusion, Side Effects Houdini, Microsoft Office, Word, Corel Draw, Autodesk AutoCAD, 3ds Max, Alias, InfraWorks, Inventor, Maya, Combustion, Smoke, Propellerheads Reason, Steinberg Cubase, Nuendo, Ableton Live, Magix Samplitude, Sequoia, Cakewalk Sonar, Presonus Studio One, Fruity Loops FL Studio, Solidworks, Siemens Solid Edge,...

Important:
To avoid errors within the programs, the keyboard has no auto-repeat function.
With one continous touch of the respective key the programmed command will run exactly one time only and will not autorepeat itself.
Please make sure this fits your application needs.

Took a little while to arrive, despite me requesting for next day but I suspect this was due to it coming from Germany.. When it did arrive, it did so nicely packaged and to my relief sporting Cherry MX Blue switches! (I also own some Pi Engineering XKey products and some of their products only feature a clicky PCB mount switch rather than a full depth mechanical). The keys all popped off easily and I was able to replace them with another matching set (I plan to use this as a custom keyboard to drive software for a Stage Lighting application).

You only receive one 2x1 wide key but after a swift email conversation with Expert Keys themselves I had 2 more in the post. It's true that currently it only works with Windows and not with Apple systems - However I am assured that this is in the works and as the quality of build is there in the hardware I am prepared to hang on and find / mod / hack my way around this problem for now.

Very pleased and the quality really is there for the price!

I bought this keyboard because at €179 it was much cheaper than the X-keys XKE-128 (at $499.95 not including shipping and customs duties).
It seems well made for the money and the keys have a positive feel. The supplied software for programming the keyboard is quite confusing and not very "user friendly" but it gets the job done. Originally these keyboards were aimed at "Point of Sale" applications and not really intended for end users.
I'm a freelance software developer and switch between development environment, operating system and programming languages every few months. My plan was to program this keyboard for the common operations I need to perform e.g. "run tests" and have different configurations for the various environments in which I work.
I can confirm that it works well on Windows but sadly the keyboard is not recognised at all in recent Apple OS releases due to issues with the keyboard's USB implementation (in fairness, there is no claim from the supplier that it works with Apple kit). I hope to have a workaround whereby the keyboard is plugged into a computer running Windows or Linux and the keystrokes are forwarded to my MacBook via Synergy (keyboard and mouse sharing software).
In summary, if you need a 128 key programmable keyboard for Windows and want a low price option then the Expertkeys EK-128 is a good choice.

The EK-128 is an awesome piece of gear.
The build quality is very good and the design looks nice - not as trashy like a lot af gaming keyboards.
I'm using it side to side with my regular keyboard and it`s a blessing not to remember all those key commands any more. Now they are all triggered by the push of a single button.
I speeded up my workflow big time.
For example my right hand can stay on the mouse at all times.
Be aware that you need to invest some time for programming and labelling the keyboard.
It comes with 5 different coloured pieces of paper for labelling.
I use red for "zoom" commands, use green for "transporter" commands....you get the idea.
The USB cable is very long...no need for an extension.
Only works on a Windows based PC.
If you work with a certain program on a daily basis - and want to speed up your workflow - you can`t go wrong with this one. Recommended.
