[GB] GMK Analog Dreams 2 (Closed)

GMK Analog Dreams 2
~ June 4th to June 25th ~



Not satisfied with other vaporwave themed keysets, I set out to create my own. Thus, GMK Analog Dreams was born. The beige base evokes the aesthetic of vintage computers. Add a splash of soft pastels, complimented by a pop of bright purple accent, and the result is a unique keyset that stands apart.

Its sister colorway: Digital Nightmares, is a dive into the world of synthwave. The deep purple base provides a vibrant backdrop to the Analog Dreams pastels which serve as an elegant thread connecting the two sets.
 
On with the show.

Kits





2 base kits: Analog Dreams and Digital Nightmares.
Both feature as comprehensive base coverage as you'll find in GMK: Fullsize, TKL (even those F13 ones), 75%, 65%,
60%, 1800, physical ISO, Alice, and basic 40s support, don't even need a separate spacebar kit!
The pastels of Digital Nightmares are the same as Analog Dreams and while I was deciding on a good base purple,
I realized I had a great one on hand already, so it's actually the same color as GMK Taro's modifiers.




Expanded a bit from R1, I added 65% column support and some fun windowed caps to lean into the faux-vintage a e s t h e t i c.
Note: rendered with purple LEDs, the windows themselves are uncolored.




Who doesn't love some extra color in their life?




For all you split space weirdos.

Loving the kitting provided in the base. Glad to see more designers going a bit wider and covering all of the common layouts.

Unfortunately. It was probably the single most requested thing in IC, too.

I mean, you can't say it doesn't fit the theme. Japanese language and 80's/90's Japanese imagery are staple aspects of vaporwave.

That's the ultimate reason why I'm skipping on this. A lot of different colors is great, don't get me wrong, but not at the expense of a coverage.

Deskmats are cool.

No surprise about kitting though, check their previous sets for bottom row R4

- No 1.5u Super/Win/Code in base
- No extension kit, no 1.5u
- No 1.5u in novelty kit

Fortunately this oddity in Analog Dreams is not an issue that is common in other GMK sets with a novelty kit. Cognoscenti designers include at least a 2 x 1.5u R4 :thumb: with considerate kitting coverage vs multiple colors/accents. See Oblivion v3.1 (colors/extension) and British Racing Green (novelties).

To me, I'd feel compelled to offer 2 different designs for 1.5u legends, as I'm not a fan of how it looks having a singular text legend in one position and a novelty in the other.

The kit's already thick and colors are very important to the set, so I'd rather not offer them than make the set that much more expensive by adding at minimum 4 1.5us.

Just makes room for the possibilities of 1.5u Artisans.  Personally I could care less for a 1.5u novelty as what is offered is ample w/in that option, also you don't have to get the novelties if you don't like them.

The crux of the issue is that there's no support in ANY kit for 1.5U supers. Us weirdos usually lean on novelties to solve that problem if they're not in the base kit.

I can see that, since I'm more prone to needing 1u and 1.75 depending on the board.

Hey y'all, no major collab updates or anything right now, just wanted to pop in and make it known that you've got 1 week left to join the GB!

I also wanted to make sure it was broadcast here as well that all kits will be produced!

Thanks to everyone who has joined so far <3

Probably a bit late but I was really curious.
On the Digital Nightmare kit, why is there 2 tilde keys and 2 x R2 pipe keys? They look the same to me.
As far as i can tell, its cause the kitting is a copy of the Analogue Dreams kitting? In such a case if they are the same, does it make sense to replace the keys to something else like a novelty?


Thanks

The tildes are different colours. Mod/alpha coloured text on each.

And I can only see one R3 pipe key, and an R4 pipe key… though looking closer is the R4 pipe key supposed to be there? Is it supposed to be <> like in the light kit?

Hey y'all, just an update in line with the new rules.

The update is I have no update.

Working on cables with Spaztik Cables, will hopefully have more news on that front very soon!
