A neat design so far and the roller switch is a great idea.  Putting more than one roller on the board with some software to match could allow volume controls for separate devices which would be cool, or possibly one for volume and one for scroll.

That is a good idea! We'll def consider putting a few more roller/scroll and even try to place them in different positions next time. As for software, I recently bumped in one called MIDI2LR, which uses the MIDI function that is embedded in the QMK to control the Adobe Lightroom. Feel free to check it out on YouTube.

couldn't this also be done with layers?

Unsure which function are you talking about but MIDI is actually realized using layers, just a different kind of MIDI layers to deal with some functions that aren't controllable with traditional keyboard shortcuts (e.g.: ctrl+shift+e).

Any chance of more plate options, or is this set to only have an alu plate?

Unsure which function are you talking about

oh, I meant, for example having one wheel for volume and one wheel for scroll, you could just program them on different layers instead, so there is no need for two wheels

Indeed, with layers. I guess it's down to preference when some other ppl want to have more physical keys/gadgets but we value the balance of the function and aesthetics so this is a good solution for us. Hope you like it. :)

We worried a lot about our development speed, tbh. Glad we got the dibs. We'd love to see more creative designs but we have to admit it takes more than time and effort to make a decision deploying a new gadget.

You actually reminded me of confirming the layout. I'll post the exact combinations of all supported bottom rows later in the post.

Have you ever consider making the scroll wheel on the left... it would be more intuitive if any form of rotary encoder device to be put on the left because most people use their right hand for mouse. I feel like I will smacking my mouse hand to the scroll wheel. If there's I think there's instance I want to use the scroll wheel and the mouse at the same time, I can use my left hand to operate the scroll wheel and right hand for the mouse.

We have thought about in the development process. To keep a rectangular shape and keeping the ESC botton as well as a relatively thin bezel are our priorities thus the left side scroll wheel route wasn't taken at the end. We feel you about holding the mouse while using the wheel tho. We will review that path if we have more freedom in the bezel design choices and the technical ability to realize that perhaps on the side (like a camera scroll well, on the side instead of the front)

That's what I was thinking when I originally saw it as well. Would be great to have layers change the functionality (volume, horizontal vs vertical scroll)

But yea, definitely interested the board :)

if you are suggesting turning off the per key rgb while keeping the strip on, then yes it's possible. :)

Got my Voice 65 from the Chinese GB today! I'm typing on it right now. The board feels great and I love the wheel for volume control. I turn the per key rgb off but leave the light strip on just for a little flair. The light strip can be customized to match keycap sets which is great aesthetically. I also like that you can change the saturation of the rgb as well to make the light color white when I just want something very neutral. I'll make a reddit post with a mini review soon.
