Thnikk's a really friendly guy :)
Received mine a few days ago and I'm really happy with it. Great build quality!Sticking it to the edge of your desk makes it way easier to stream with than a regular keyboard IMO.

I r8 8/8 :D

500 sales!



(And 60 reviews!)

Thank you guys so much. 500 is a huge milestone for me and I can tell you I definitely didn't think I'd have made 500 keypads at the beginning of the year. I really do enjoy doing this just to be able to give back to such a nice community. It's great having people to talk to in-game and hearing how happy you guys are to get your keypads. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and I'm very happy to be a part of it :)

Also, parts for the LED and RGB models are on their way and will hopefully be back up by the middle of the week. The basic and basic+ are available exclusively in white until my black cases come in (also around mid-next week.)

Update 11/13

Everything's back in stock (except for glow in the dark keycaps.) There was also another slight name change from the osu! keypad (r2) -> LED osu! keypad (r2). Hopefully clears up some confusion.

Update 11/23

Reprogramming guide updated to include the LED and RGB r2 models
Sorry to anyone that was waiting! It's the same page for the other pro micro models [link]

Slight price drop for the LED and RGB models
The LED went from $31 to $28 and the RGB went from $35 to $32. I've been wanting to do this for a while to have smaller price jumps between models.

Working on a bluetooth prototype
Probably stupid because of latency but I figured it'd be a fun project :)

I'm also planning on using RGBW LEDs in it which may replace the LEDs in the current RGB model (though there's not much of a difference.)

Probably not a very good idea. Also many properly built desktops don't have bluetooth.

Just purchased one. :)

Does this device help with how fast you can push the buttons?

I think I am going to get myself one these for the holiday. I’ve been playing osu with my bad keyboard for the past two years and I feel like it is partially holding me back with how long it takes to press the keys. I was looking for something custom made for osu and happened to stumble across this promising device.

No it wont make you better but it will probably make it more fun because light up buttons are cool. The only way to improve in osu is the tried and proven method of playing the fucking game.

It depends on the switches you use, some are better for osu than others.

switching from blues to gateron reds brought my rank up about 20,000 in a day

For anyone who has issues with the tape not being sticky anymore:
Try using some rubbing alcohol on it.


My keypad wouldn't stay still anymore, the thing would slide a mile away as I tried to hit the pause button during my farming LOL. What I did was put some rubbing alcohol on a Q-Tip, and cleaned the bottom of the tape with it.

Worked like a charm, and the tape is as good as brand new. 8-)

I would definitely say you could see an improvement if what you're currently using is holding you back. This is what I generally say for any "gaming" peripherals. Going from rubber dome to mechanical does help quite a bit, and f you have a mechanical keyboard with blues or browns and you don't like them for osu, you'll probably also see an improvement moving to linear switches like DEAR SPARK (or moving to lighter switches if you have bad stamina.)

Where you wouldn't see any improvement is going from the LED to the RGB model, it just looks cooler :P

Have you seen my guide (posted in the OP)? I say to use water here as I'd be afraid of rubbing alcohol removing the adhesive.

Yeah, I've been doing the water thing for a while, but the thing is that it still actually wore off over time (not sure if related to water or not), but searched up how to make double sided tape sticky again, and I read that rubbing alcohol works. Surprisingly, it pretty much makes it stick like it's brand new again. I guess I would suggest using a minimal amount on the Q-Tip to avoid removing the adhesive. Mine is still stuck on perfectly fine, but I'll update whether it affects it or not in the future.

I'll try this out the next time mine wears out. Thanks for the tip, I'll add it to the guide if it works :D

Pardon my use of Sketchup. My Autodesk skills are non-existent.
I'm actually thinking about getting a 3d printer for myself for chirstmas. I don't play osumania so I haven't bothered making one, but maybe doing something with some 1.5 and 2x DSA keycaps could be fun. I've also been playing with fusion 360 lately so maybe I'll try to throw something together myself :)

At this point I'm just gonna move my pictures to Art forums in the hopes of avoiding the imminent thread lock.

Pls respect this thread as it is one of the more serious ones in G&R
