[IC] GMK Media Keys (WoB & Minimal)
« on: Mon, 22 March 2021, 17:44:36 »

Media keys kit extension for White on Black and Minimal.



IC FORM

Inspiration:



A bean sídhe was a fairy spirit, that would wail whenever a family member was about to die. (In English, we refer to them as banshees.) The bean sidhe didn’t cause death but announced the death or warned loved ones that death was near, so they could prepare. Some believed she escorted their loved ones safely to the afterlife...so I of course decided to make this set!


I always remap Print, NumLock & Pause to Previous, Play & Next and am left with unrelated legends due to lack of support for media keys in current keysets. Same goes for the right column on my 65%.


Kits:

GMK White on Black Extension



GMK Minimal Extension

Price: TBD

Count me in!! I keep forgetting where I mapped volume up and down on my 65 column!

Please consider deskhero, ashkeebs, Apex keyboards, or minokeys for a Canadian vendor.

Thanks!

I wonder, do these legends exist already with GMK? Perhaps it would be cheaper to go ePBT or geekark for dyesub?

Yes, 100% yes. I'm in for several sets of WoB. I always map the typical PgUp and PgDn R2 and R3 on a 65% as Vol Up and Vol Dn. Any chance you'd consider adding text versions of each of them too to match the typical Drop WoB set along with keeping the icon versions to go with WoB Hiragana and Katakana sets?

This. I am definitely in, but I would vastly prefer a play/pause button rather than just play.

This is useful, this is nice. I like this. Are molds needed for these? Also please consider fixing the play key to be play+pause.

The molds for play/pause, mute, vol up, and vol down keys were used in GMK ThinkCaps:

Duly noted!  :thumb:

Some of them exist some don't. Regardless, this will happen at a reasonable price.

Yes, 100% yes. I'm in for several sets of WoB. I always map the typical PgUp and PgDn R2 and R3 on a 65% as Vol Up and Vol Dn.

Will consider it. Thanks for the suggestion.

Nice. Are they within specs tho?

Renders are approximated. I'll get them to spec before the GB.

I'm in. Really happy you chose WS1 (GMK Minimal).

Consider making more of these, I'll buy em all.

Already have a handful planned (to fill in my own keysets, tbh :p). I wanna keep this one nice and easy.

Nice! Trying to get a standard dark and light keycap set to mix with modifiers etc from other kits. Minimal is the light one and this will help out.

Maybe not all but would have been even better if it had a few more "common" symbols like calculator, light +/- , screen brightness +/- , mic mute, etc.
F row with symbols could be nice when I think about it as well in the future ;D

If you're looking to save on costs, the volume icons already exist, at least the ones that GMK ThinkCaps used. They are a bit different, but I prefer them to the ones you used anyway.

I think piggybacking on the molds created for GMK Thinkcaps is the move.

Please also consider adding a U9 kit for classic beige colorways

+1 for beige. Also if you could create an extension for NorDe UK too that'd be great.
