Understanding Your Skytech Gaming Keyboard


Today we will be discussing how to set up the RGB lighting on the Skytech gaming keyboard. In a previous blog, we provided a detailed review of the Apex Pro, which you can find in the description below. However, in this video, we will focus specifically on the RGB lighting and how you can customize it to your liking. There are two ways to change the colors of your keyboard – directly on the keyboard itself or through the application that you can install on your PC.

Changing RGB Colors on the Keyboard

To change the RGB colors using the keyboard, you need to access the illumination settings. Located next to the screen, there is a menu button. By holding it for three seconds, you will access the settings menu. The first setting you will see is “Illumination.” Using the roller, you can move up and down to navigate through the options. The roller also functions as a button, so you can click on it to enter the illumination settings. Within the illumination settings, you will find five different presets to choose from Vapor, Coast, Haze, Prism, and Orange. By clicking the roller, you can select the color preset you want.

It’s important to note that the roller acts as a select button, while the menu button functions as a go-back button. Additionally, you have the option to create your custom illumination preset. By selecting the base color, you can choose from a variety of full colors such as red, green, blue, white, yellow, purple, and orange. Alternatively, you can select the brief colors option, which applies a brief effect to the same colors as the base. There is also a breathing multi-color option available. If you prefer to turn off the lights of the keys, there is an option within the base settings to do so. Simply navigate back using the menu button to access this option.rgb keyboard

The Reactive Layer

Another setting available on the keyboard is the reactive layer. This layer is visible when you press a key and adds effect to your chosen colors. For example, you can select the ripple, line, fade, or no effect for the reactive layer.

AFK Settings

The AFK settings determine the effects that will be seen when no keys are pressed for a certain period. These effects are the same as those found in the base settings. By adjusting the timeout option, you can control how quickly the AFK effect activates.

Brightness Control

Lastly, the keyboard provides an option to adjust the brightness of the keys. You can increase or decrease the brightness until the keys are completely turned off.

Using the Application for Advanced Control

While changing the RGB colors directly on the keyboard is convenient, using the Skytech GG application on your PC provides more advanced customization options. To begin, download and install the application from the Skytech keyboard website. Once installed, open the application and navigate to the “Engine” tab. If you own multiple Steel Series products, you will see them listed on this tab.

Select the Skytech gaming keyboard to access its specific settings. On the top left of the application, you will find the profiles that you can fix and edit at any time. In the center of the application, there are different tabs. Click on the “Illumination” tab to access all the settings we previously discussed, as well as additional per-key changes. At the top of the “Illumination” tab, you can turn off the base effects or select a single color by pressing the edit button

This allows you to choose your desired color for the entire keyboard. Below the basic effects, you will find the ready effects, such as color shift, gradient, and breath. These effects provide a dynamic and eye-catching appearance to your keyboard. Additionally, you can select from various presets, including Chasing Ghosts, Electric Orange, Haze, Prism, Vapor Dreams, Warp Drive, and West Coast. These presets offer pre-defined color combinations and patterns. The reactive layer, which we discussed earlier, is also available within the application. You can select the line, ripple, fade, or no effect for this layer.

Similarly, the AFK effects offer the same options as the base settings, and you can adjust the timeout to determine when these effects activate.

If you want to customize the color of individual keys, simply select the “Select” button and hold the control key while selecting the specific keys you wish to modify. For example, by holding the control key and selecting the WASD keys, you can change their color to blue. To change the color of keys that already have the same effect, select one button with the desired effect and use the “Select the Same” tool. This tool will automatically select all other buttons with the same effect, allowing you to make changes to the entire keyboard or specific sections.

Within the application, you can also adjust the speed of the effects. This includes the base, reactive layer, and AFK effects. Each effect has its speed adjustment, giving you complete control over the appearance of your keyboard. If you create a gaming profile, you can assign specific lighting effects to the keys you use most frequently. This allows for a personalized and immersive gaming experience. You can also turn off the RGB lighting entirely for a distraction-free gaming session.
