Drive Us Crazy!

I would like to introduce everyone GMK Power Chord







About

This set was inspired by two of my interests, HKS and Raise A Suilen. HKS is a Japanese tuning company that focuses on producing aftermarket car parts that improve the performance of your car. Raise A Suilen is also from the series BanG Dream! If you know GMK Devoted, you already know. The color scheme is based on both HKS' and RAS' color schemes. The colors have been matched physically with a RAL book with official merch.


Inspirations


References and Colors Chosen





Colors: CR, RAL 170 60 50, RAL 300 60 35, RO2, MG1, WS1
The main colors are Green and Purple. The purple is lighter than GMK DY to improve readability.
The red is for the essential icons that show up on your car's dashboard. MG1 is for the pink stripes found in all HKS livery.



Kits

The kits are designed to fit most 60, 65, 70, 75, TKL, 96, 1800, Full-size keyboards in ANSI, tsangan/WKL, ISO, HHKB, Alice and more.
Fill out the IC form for more layout support!

All novelties and logos were designed by ItszBrian.

Hiragana Base Kit
OLD KIT


New Base kit based in an attempt to add in basic 40s support, Alice support along with making accents standard


Latin Base Kit
-Please vote in the IC Form if you're interested in a full standalone kit

Full Latin Base kit to keep so no one would need to buy 2 kits if they didn't want Hiragana


Boosted Novelties Kit
Key profiles are:
-R1 1Us

OLD KIT


New Kit: added in Row 4 novelties


Music Novelties Kit
I plan on removing the Cat ears and using the vinyl as the main logos, I think everyone here would know why.
Key profiles are:
-R1 1us
-R3 DJ Enter
-R4 Piano Left Shift
-R4 the rest


Accent Kit
-comes with 6.25u and 7u


Expanded spacebar colors and removed Pink accents since they are included in the base kits

Fill out the IC Form! If I were to add UK ISO, should I add it in the Base Kit or Latin Alphas or both?

Can you consider move the standard (esc, enter and arrows) keys from Boosted Novelties to base? I think it's better in term of kitting.

Any chance to separate the accented keys from the boosted novelties kit?
Interested in base and those accent keys but not interested in the car novelties at all.

Cool. And looks like the people that missed cyberspace (i think that's set I'm thinking of...) should be pretty happy there's something some what similar (color wise at least) for them.

Very nice and lean kitting, and only two custom colors. I think this'll do well.

Is it possible for you to get a UK Vendor for this?

It would be amazing if you could

I like the set and all but wew lad that's an odd combo of themes for one single set.
