Title: [GB] GMK Modern Dolch Light
Post by: GarrettSucks on Sun, 02 February 2020, 00:16:16
Hello everyone!
 
The time has finally come, the GB for GMK Modern Dolch Light, a brighter variation of the popular GMK Modern Dolch! Jan and I have worked very hard to make this project as great as it can be and we are very excited to finally bring it to you.

Inspiration/Naming
 
As the name might suggest, Modern Dolch Light was born out of Modern Dolch. Janglad and I realised that a lightened up version of MoDo looked great and after some tweaking this is what we came up with. Modern Dolch light features cool greys on both the alphas and modifiers. It uses the grey from Modern Dolch modifiers for the legends, to give it that unique low contrast and calming look. To add some vibrancy we added a variation of the familiar cyan and red/pink accents found in the original Modern Dolch.
 
Now I know the naming might not make sense, this isn't a Dolch set after all. GMK Modern Dolch Light is a derivative of GMK Modern Dolch which is a derivative of OG Dolch. While this set is not necessarily a Dolch colorway, the name is there to show the origin of the design. One thing is for sure, this set will settle perfectly in every collection as an easy-on-the-eyes colorway that will go with any keyboard!

Buy it here
 
GMK Modern Dolch Light will be sold until the end of the month by these vendors. The set is expected to ship in Q4 of 2020.
 
Day one buyers will get a $5 discount as well as getting raffle spots for the artisans shown below Due to time-zone differences, some vendors having the change pricing manually, ... this 24h mark might not be exact.

Aside from the gray one, are the Pink and Teal Rama caps this time the same as Modern Dolch's ones? They look very similar to me.

The base color is the same, but the cyan is a little lighter than Modern Dolch. Also, the red cap in the MoDo groupbuy had a red ano with Gray enamel fill. This time it is a Gray ano with a red enamel fill

WE ARE OFFICIALLY LIVE!

Few things...

MyKeyboard.eu will have their page live soon.

The promo for the $94.99 price will run for 24 hours on each vendor respectively. So every region will have 24 hours to take advantage.

We will have cables available from MechCables soon. If you want to take advantage of the Day One promos, you will not lose out on the cable. Once they are available, you can just message the customer support of your respective proxy, and we can add it to your order.

Thanks to everyone for the support on the project! Let's make this the biggest one yet!

Why isn't that stuff in the Norde kit as well when you already remove all ISO specific keys from the base?
People who buy the Norde kit won't use the UK-ISO specific keys anyway. Wouldn't it have been better to have a complete UK-ISO kit AND a Norde kit with ISO-Enter, 1.25 shift, etc.?

You son of a *****, I'm in!

I was on the fence at first, then I scrolled down and fell on the Kendo renders and it just clicked. I have two really dark sets on the way, this would be my only light set and it would look amazing on the white Polaris, on the MoDo Light deskmat, and next to the white-and-light-blue Sköll mouse I just got. Complete theme package, and even better when/if I get a Kendo later on.

Good luck with the set, I have no doubt people will love it :D

Yes, that's not a typo. That is indeed nine hundred and thirty-nine Standard kits sold in 24 hours!! This means that the record is broken once again: this is the most GMK sets sold in 24 hours, ever.

Thank you to everyone who joined so far, this set has proven to be hugely popular. We hope this success carries on into the month!

The first day discount is such a great idea, I was honestly on the fence with this and wouldn't have been heart broken if I skipped it but that low cost simple base kit, plus first day discount pushed me over.

Is there a point in the future where the base price will drop considering the popularity of this set? Is that even a thing with GMK sets anymore? I've seen this practice used on Drop in certain group buys but nowhere else.

Drop is one of the only vendors to practice this anymore. Most GBs you see will price a set at a certain MOQ and keep that as the price for the remainder of the GB, no matter how many sets are sold.

Well if we worked with MOQs the way Drop does the starting price would be +$10 higher and vendors would need to refund people manually (+ PayPal keeps refund fees now so it also costs em money). Just pricing at higher MOQs out of the gate is more efficient.

Congratulations on such a HUGE success!

Apologies for the delay on the €5 discount on the Mykeyboard site. Everyone who ordered the set up to this point will get the €5 refunded, the deal has also been extended for new customers until midnight (CET) so  get it while you still can! (https://mykeyboard.eu/catalogue/category/group-buys/gmk-modern-dolch-light_254/)

Will this happen fully automatically, or do I need to contact you about my order?

I will say that I understand completely why vendors outside of Drop won't do this because of the Paypal thing and other issues.

BUT, it would be nice to get some additional "rewards" for supporting sets that hit massive numbers such as 2000 MoQ and higher.

Extra caps are usually added to the base kit... look at bento, metropolis and Dracula.

theoretically vendors could do pending charges like hotel rooms, gas stations, car rental places. i get its a lot of work logistically and i get vendors need and want profit but the extra keys are pretty worthless imo. you buy into a set because of the keys offered rather than what potentially may be offered randomly.

it would be neat to show the possible keys that would be offered at different price points before the actual GB starts though if thats the route that is chosen.

MOQ is usually 50 and I've never seen them not made, even if the set didn't get made. Perhaps GMK Sparta RAMA is the only exception, and that's only because the GB was ended after a week.

I'm pretty sure Dixie and Janglad know there's a demand for an R2 of MoDo. But I'm also sure Dixie has other keysets that he planned to run this year. I'm sure they will get to it eventually.

I promise you that won't be an issue here! Norde already sold more at this point than in the entire 9009 R3 GB and it got made there too :)

In the obscure kit, is the row with "raise", "lower" and "lock" row 4? I am trying to figure out a suitable replacement for the missing R4 "Del" key which is normally part of the numpad.

I've ranted at the colour matching for GMK 8008 in the past, and I just wanted to say a big thank you for taking the feedback on board, giving regular updates and being so detailed about the process. It's actually incredibly interesting to read how it's done, and it gives me a lot more confidence that even if I have to wait a little longer to receive it, the final product will be top notch.

dunno if you’re trolling but there’s a 0% chance of that happening. colors were barely approved a couple weeks ago. then there’s this thing called a production queue, in which there are numerous sets from multiple vendors that are either currently in production or scheduled to be produced ahead of this set.

No worries. I came to GH to find some updates on stuff that were suppose to be shipped these few months and got nothing, so went diving on the Dixie site and it was in their update section.

As keebs become bigger and bigger I fear GH is gonna be left behind in favour of r/mk, Discord and other avenues.

Has this been the case for all GMK group buys? I assume it is all pandemic related (GMK not getting materials, reduced staffing at their factory etc). This was the last groupbuy I was involved in and haven't really followed the scene since that time.

Here with a shipping update we just received from GMK this morning.

They said that the set has not started production, even though we were told it had in the last update. The production start was pushed back due to material delays. Updated shipping date from Germany is Calendar Week 24 or 25 (June 6-19) which means most likely a July shipping date to customers, if customs clearance doesn't present any delays.

GMK produces in Germany, so EU vendors tend to be the first to ship out their sets as they receive them within a couple days versus overseas vendors having longer travel time plus customs clearance processes.

My spacebar was a tiny bit wobbly, but I also realized that my ****ty stabs had popped the wire again, so after I fixed that, it wasn't so bad. The white matches my Polaris e-white absolutely perfectly, and the deskmat is amazing. Love it, instantly one of my favorite sets so far :)

It feels very classic set. I also ordered muted, but its nice that both of them has different rows and alphas. And since r5 is more of a novelty thing than pure standart this can be nice daily driver while muted to embrace some vintage looking keyboard. I wonder how much muted and this mods are similar or they aren't

I don't want to get too offtopic here, but before I get into this GB, do you perhaps know the status of Modern Dolch 2?

The Modern Dolch 2 thread (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=106437) would be a better place to ask about Modern Dolch 2.

But Omnitype sold both sets, and they update their timelines fairly often.
  • Modern Dolch Light: (https://omnitype.com/blogs/timelines/gmk-modo-2) "Keycaps Arrived to our warehouse (as of 7.23.2021)"
  • Modern Dolch 2: (https://omnitype.com/blogs/timelines/gmk-modo-2) "Estimated to ship from manufacturer in mid-Oct and to customers in Nov 2021 (as of 6.25.2021)"


Thanks for this answer man. Fairly sure I've checked Omnitype's website every now and then, but never actually found that page. Right! Looks like I'll have to wait a little longer!

hm, all the pictures (https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/p30hs8/modo_light_on_think_65v2/) i'm seeing (https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/p36oze/modo_light_on_the_peachyuu/) of modo light's "mint/very muted cyan" accent (https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/olzn89/modo_light/) look extremely not minty/muted cyan and lean much more towards aqua/tiffany blue/saturated cyan (https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/oy2lbm/first_build_kbd67_lite_wmodern_dolch_light/). i dont hate it by any means but it defintely seems different from the renders.

I agree that the renders and the final product look a bit different for pretty much every color. However, they look very accurate to the photo of the color samples provided on the main page.

How is everyone's spacebars? I've been buying GMK sets for over 5 years at this point, and these are the worst that I've seen. If I hold down one side of my 7u bar, the gap is aprox 2mm from the table surface on the other side. The 6.25 is not far behind. QA on GMK sets have been declining over this past year or so, but this one takes the cake.

My 7u is like 95% perfect, mounted on my keyboard it shows a veeery slight unevenness but it's not distracting or even noticeable unless you're looking for it. Haven't really checked the 6.25u, since I don't have a keyboard for it right now.

seconded, the renders dont even remotely match the finished product

not sure if its a problem with the renders being inaccurate (can't say since no RAL codes were provided IIRC) or the whole data-driven colormatching process itself was flawed

either way im struggling to see how these accents got approved

I contacted omni type and they're just like
You can return them.

like wtf? Duties, marketprice, shipping fees back and 3% restock fee, and they can just sell as extras... ok budyy.

I don't think we should let this fly?

When did this become a thing? I thought GMK was so good, I heard in the past they would send out re-dos of certain keys that were really off.

The original colors look very luxury, nice. Which is why I pulled the trigger. Now it looks like some cheap ass Chinese set.

I even got two sets cuz I thought this was gonna be one I was going to use for the rest of my life cuz I fell in love with it.

I've bought 3 really expensive group buys in colors specifically to match their renders which used these original colors. (onyx in silver, portal in silver, 7v in navy). Like this is ****ed.

Omnitype was behind the 80082 one as well weren't they.

Edit: looking it into it further people's pictures of the keyset with the deskmat, it doesn't even match the deskmat green lol with the 3 circles.
It doesn't match the rama cap either.

also the HK gaming copy of this actually looks closer to the original (edit: on the mods). my god.

8008, dracula, now this. Omnitype... this is just outrageous

so pissed

You bought 2 silver boards and a navy for the sets to go on...How on earth did you expect the PASTEL colors to match navy exactly? Since when does pastel green match navy? And how could they not match silver? Everything matches silver. The only Rama's that have ever matched the keysets they're supposed to go with have been black and white. Nothing else comes close.

Sell your sets and move on. Plenty of people are satisfied with their sets. People on Mechmarket will be satisfied, too. Make a profit on yours and get something you actually like.

Upon closer inspection, the GMK version is a bit closer, but I would prefer the more subdued over the oversaturated. I personally got it as a better 9009 with a pastel look.
Maybe I can buy an HK gaming set and mix the mods

I literally bought the onyx for this very render: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0238/7342/1376/products/MDL_Top_1024x1024@2x.jpg?v=1613771927

I could have gotten white or green, which I debated over a long time, but ultimately I got it for the modol match. I could have matched my botanical or my minimal instead. Maybe you're not so aesthetically driven or care, but that's a big part of this hobby for people.

Check out the original renders for modol, they look good with silver boards, and navy. Don't be stupid, almost every sick silver board has used this as a render, the original pastel.

Sure silver looks good with a bunch of colors, but I don't like those combos.
I had to float all this money for this long not only for the sets but for these GB's.

---------------------------------------
Topic of just accepting this:

I'm going to move on from this obviously, and I'll find solutions, but this doesn't make this okay.

If you're going to just gloss over it, well have fun with future GB's because you're helping set a precedent that it's ok.
It's really not okay, and stop letting it be if you don't want to have ****ed color matching yourself or for others in the future, that's what this is about you nincumpoops.

I get your disappointment. Personally, I can live with the difference but that doesn't mean we shouldn't point it out. After all, WYSIWIG is why we accept the delay added by the colour matching process in the first place.

Just received mine.

I have to say, the colors are much more saturated than the renders suggest. It should be like half a shade less saturated. Definitely slightly disappointed.

I’m sorry, but you bought into three keyboards for this one colorway?

Can’t you just… put other keys on those nice boards? Or replace the mods with Mr Sleeves?

Gmk uses spectrometers to get near perfect color matching, to the point where they’ll ask you to pick a new color code if it doesn’t match (iirc). Not sure if I’d throw shade at them. Edit: Ignore me spreading misinformation  :eek:

If anything, the renders are at fault. Even still, I dunno if the outrage is necessarily warranted.

If you’re risk averse when it comes to GBs, buy things aftermarket or avoid first round GBs.

Sounds like you got your information from GMK Rainy Day post, but haven't read through whole thread :) They don't use spectrometer. It is up to the designer/vendor to match the colors. That is why people get multiple samples, trying to find one that is matching closest to their desired color.

Lol. I was in the GB as well. While I like how the set looks in real life, it is definitely different than the renders. So, I think it would be nice to get some more info on what happened. Otherwise it is just designers/vendors making a mistake, and just going on to the next sale, since there are enough buyers anyways. (Extreme example of this was GMK PnC Light, so maybe we will get GMK Modern Dolch Light Light  :p )

When you look at the swatches from this picture on the first page:

(https://i.imgur.com/Zm9RjZ7.png)

Then compare these colors to the final product, and the renders. It becomes clear that the renders were not an accurate representation of the color swatches used for color matching. To me, the final product looks pretty much an exact match to those swatches, which are noticeably darker/more saturated than the renders. It's too bad that the swatches were not shown in the IC phase to avoid something like this.

Finally got the time to inspect my set... and all I can say is I am incredibly disappointed.

The gray is 2-3x darker than the renders/marketingmaterial imply. The mod/esc key are about 50% more saturated.

The set looks nothing like the colors on the box art which is more of an accurate representation of what I (and many others) expected.

https://imgur.com/a/N5bLNZ0

No way you can look at even the gray and say that looks anything like these: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0054/0878/4458/products/01_Standard_700x.png?v=1630693867

Super super disappointing.

I was under the impression that Omnitype is one of the best in the game in terms of color matching since you guys take it very very seriously by using scientific instruments. But something either went wrong with your color matching process, or these were the right colors all along and something went wrong with your renders and marketing material..

My apartment during the day is about 5300 Kelvin color temperature give or take, but it was a bit of a cloudier day so it might even be higher Kelvin that day. About as normal of a color it can get in most people's apartments.

I can take some pictures later with my studio lighting setup that can go between 3000-6000 Kelvin. But I know it still won't match what the renders suggest which is much much more desaturated.

Studio lighting vs Florescent lighting

EDIT:

Here you go, since you mention studio lighting (3300K) vs florescent lighting (~5000K), I gave you the whole spectrum that my kelvin-adjustable studio lights has (3300K to 5600K).

Camera + lens: Sony A7III + 35 mm 1.4

Photos shot at fixed color temperature on my camera at 5500K to aim to be as neutral as possible. Shot at f5.6. All photos are raw unedited straight from camera (converted to JPEG).

I even threw in a GMK sample color ring and a RAL R7 color swatch that's used for GMK for color matching. Lights in my room all turned off + blinds all shut so there's as little outside light as possible to affect internal room color temperature.

For this experiment, I incremented from 3300K up at 500K increments up until the limit of 5600K.

3300K

To test my hypothesis of Omnitype's renders using an overly large flood light that desaturated all the colors, I brought my light as close as I could to the keycap set, and it does look closer to their renders.

I think the pictures speak for themselves.

tl;dr I think the renders are inaccurately lighted leading to blow out of saturation leading to a much more desaturated render when compared to the real colors.



What

The color temperature of my room and light source doesn't affect color saturation so much that the colors become 50% more saturated and the grays 2-3x darker

The only way my picture could look like Omni's renders are if I have a very very large neutral light at around 5500 that blows all the colors and saturation out. My room has a similar color temp but not light intensity, but the results won't be that dramatic of a change.

Doing god's work my man

I'm not trying to cause drama or start ****. If Omnitype did indeed make a mistake with their renders, they can just admit it and promise to do better for next time. If they messed up in color matching, same thing, just admit it and do better next time. I wouldn't even be mad.

Ignoring us and hoping we'll forget about it is pretty rude.

And paying >$150 for a TKL base kit (no numpad!) and defending a (genuine) mistake is also pretty silly.

I'm not mad or anything, but I didnt like the set lol. Will have to sell it. I'd say the worst thing is the light alphas make it look washed out.

This is my goto pic: DCS Sleeper on top, GMK modol on bottom.

Calm down. I offered a possible explanation that did not exceed more than a single sentence. Good on you for running the tests, but you need to relax. And hate it break it to ya, but nothing is properly lit in your photos.

I spent less than 10 minutes on this. If you want me to "light it correctly", say less. But the results will still be the same.

Sounds like you were more worried about validating your own theory instead of producing a valid test. I get that you're mad, but do some growing up and maybe not antagonize anyone who doesn't immediately agree with your sentiment.

My dude, proper lighting doesn't mean simply shooting at a photo at 5600K. Lol You do a lazy lest, you're gonna get lazy results. But keep on with this crusade of yours and keep getting angrier. And might I suggest spending less time building keyboards and more time building your social skills.

For some reason, my D and F is really close to each other... Same as most of the photo people posted.

First time I saw this was with GMK hennessey where U, I is close to each other and some other keys.
I have not yet seen this in my other sets before.

Yeah I didn't notice it until you pointed it out.
Is this within the acceptable quality expectations?

Based on overwhelming complain to Drops for GMK Hennessey, they deem it as acceptable problem.

GMK quality been dropping from warp space bar to uneven stem these days... It's quite disappointing....

I am only here to comment on some things I am seeing wrong with methodology and nothing to do with the keycaps.

Color temperature equivalents is not light source equivalents, especially in regards to spectral power distribution. Comparing an LED source to a tungsten source to a fluorescent source all at the same average color temperature can make things all look very different. While those images do show a range of color temperatures, they are so poorly exposed that any meaningful conclusions would be quite hard to come by when the data itself is flawed. The second set of images do more closely match the render, and can support the theory that the lighting conditions used in the render could have been too bright.

I think people need to keep in mind that renders are always a visualization of how a set can look under various conditions, and are never really absolutely indicative of the final product.

My base kit came with a horrendously warped 7U spacebar, making the set impossible to use on the keyboard I bought to pair it with (Mr.Suit).
What can I do? hot water and hairdryer didn't help.
Thanks for your input
