An out of the way, but easily accessible macropad - Made with a powder-coated steel plate and satisfying aluminum knob - The perfect macropad for any setup.

3, 5, or 7 Programmable Key Configurations

The Pikatea Macropad GB3 is a fully programmable macropad that mounts to an underside surface. We think this is the best place for a macropad since it doesn't take up desk space but is still right within reach. The device is programmable with a GUI to help with music control, repetitive tasks or actions. You can program each button to provide input to your computer such as:

  • Control your music with play/pause, seek/skip actions
  • Activate your screenshot tool 
  • Start or stop your recording program
  • Control the volume of programs independently
  • Control your streaming application, change scenes, mute your microphone, toggle an overlay (OBS, Streamlabs, etc)
  • Mute yourself in a video conference
  • Adjust the computer volume with the knob
  • Switch your computer sound from speakers to headphones
  • Type out a phrase like a street address or a commonly used email reply
  • Type out an emoji or emote

View more examples in the user guide. The device is loaded with VIAL firmware but is compatible with QMK and VIA.
