Dygma Raise Advanced Gaming Keyboard

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2017-12-23

Take your gaming to the next level with the Dygma Raise Advanced Gaming Keyboard. This ergonomic keyboard is ideal for esports and offers you total comfort and control. The Dygma Raise actually detaches in the center so you can angle the keys as you need. In addition, every key is remappable and can be configured to your specific needs. Plus, the keys can take on special behaviors based on a tap, several taps, or holding it down. With open source software and firmware, you can adjust and improve the keyboard as you see fit and learn from the community. The Dygma Raise has 8 thumb keys that are comfortable to use since they are where the thumbs naturally rest. You can even use just part of the keyboard in conjunction with your mouse for a more comfortable layout. This makes it perfect for left-handed users as well. Finally, for total comfort, the Dygma Raise is complete with palmrests and pads for your wrists.

> But everything is going as planned! Except for the _at least_ 1 month delay for Early Bird backers that has been acknowledged in comment replies but not mentioned in any official update... right? I have resisted mentioning that the delivery dates weren't clarified in the latest update like you said it would be, because for all I know you may be still figuring out exactly how much delay is expected, and I would love to avoid posting critical or negative comments without due cause. The only reason I mention it now is because it's concerning to see you claim that "everything is going as planned!" which is plainly not true, or at best is misleading to the vast majority of backers that have not been informed of the changes to the delivery timeline. If anyone's curious or is not sure what I'm talking about, here's my previous comment for context: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deilor/dygma-raise-the-worlds-most-advanced-gaming-keyboa/posts/2214120#comment-20753292

Couldn't find an answer in the updates...
Is the lack of "blank" keycaps option in the survey fixed? If so, how do i correct it? Do the survey again? Correct me if i'm wrong, from what i udnerstand its if i choose any option other than "US keycaps" i'll be receiving 2 sets - US and the chosen one, but only one set in casue the US keycaps is selected?

Thanks for your comment! It's been quite a busy last few days! But everything is going as planned!

Have to say after looking through all of the last update, I'm thoroughly impressed with the attention to detail on every piece of the Raise and truly appreciate the effort going into this! So looking forward to having it!

Thanks for the answer :)

@Pus Pus The pam pads are detachable and washable so you can always clean them :) @Patrick
For the moment, only the English US and English UK keycaps are PBT. But you will be receiving them by default anyway! If you choose German (ISO) as your keycaps in the survey, you will also receive English UK (ISO) by default. :)
Patrick Praas
Review from Kickstarter
Is it possible, that you will be offering a german layout with PBT caps later on or will I have to change to US or UK layout to get PBT caps?

Review from Kickstarter
I actually love the white version more, but afraid that it would get dirty very fast, especially the palm rest will eventually getting yellow over time :(

Review from Kickstarter
@Petr
Ok, I will put a note on your survey and you'll get ANSI, EN US. Your blanks will also be ANSI.

Review from Kickstarter
@Dominique, thanks. Found a list of countries that I missed before. In that case 1) can I ask for different set? Cause my county is in ISO list, but I'm used to ANSI. 2) Blanks will be ANSI or ISO(Asking mainly because of size of LeftShift and Enter key), or same as main set?
Dominique
Review from Kickstarter
@Petr
You'll be given EN UK if the country you're from uses ISO; and EN US if you're from the US or living in countries using ANSI layout.

Review from Kickstarter
I updated my BackerKit to Blank caps, how do I choose if my first set is EN US or EN UK?
Thanks

@dominique Oh no it's fine if it's in october. No worries about it. Thank you for clarifying.
Dominique
Review from Kickstarter
Hi @Chieun! It would be around October. If you want, I can put a special note on your Backerkit saying that you will change your address that time.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi there,
I just wanted to know the approximate shipping date (month would be sufficient) for early backers (not super early bird), not that I'm in a rush to get it, but rather it will affect on where I would like the keyboard to be sent to so I can update it if necessary.

@Dominique, Gordon Since I ordered two keyboards (with choices to get more switches) I got both types. So if I don't like one, I can switch ^^. Thanks for your help and suggestions!
Dominique
Review from Kickstarter
@Gordon
Thanks for replying to @njt's question. @njt
The Kailh Copper switches would be a good option for you. As Gordon said, the short travel distance till the key is actuated can be similar to a membrane switch you're used to. But it is also similar to the Cherry MX Brown. With the Browns, the travel before the key is actuated is slight deeper, but it does feel slightly easier to push down. It's really a matter of preference. If you're a heavy typist, I think you would prefer the Copper switches. Hope this helps!
Gordon
Review from Kickstarter
@njt Those are like the scissor keys on many modern laptops. In my humble opinion, the closest option being offered here would be the Kailh copper switches, low travel distance (not as low as the Sculpt Ergonomic though) while still maintaining a tactile feel you'd be used to on a membrane keyboard. Of course, they're not gonna feel the same, even a full board of kailh low profile switches wouldn't mimic the feel of the scissor mechanism.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, I have the Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop and I like the feel of the keys - which ones would I order to get the same feel as this keyboard? https://www.microsoft.com/accessories/en-us/products/keyboards/sculpt-ergonomic-desktop/l5v-00001 Someone wrote about it, but still unsure of which to choose.

Review from Kickstarter
Ok, thank you. So 24 € for extra Keycaps, which are made of ABS.
- Are the non printed keycaps (as add on) PBT or ABS?
- So, will normal keycaps made for mechanical switches keyboards fit?
(aside from the space bar I guess) Dominique wrote
@Florian
Sorry for the confusion. Only the English UK and US keycaps are PBT double-shot keycaps. The rest: German, Spanish, French, Japanese, and Nordic, are ABS laser etched. This applies to the extra keycaps that we offer as Add-Ons.

@Dominique, I was just wondering if you had any updates/news on the tenting feature? Also could you add a note in my backerkit survey that it should be ISO layout?
Thank you in advance!
Dominique
Review from Kickstarter
Hey @RC !
To answer your question a few days ago: We are working onn the redesign now, and we will relay some info to all of you soon. For sure the PCB will be redesigned if we remove the USB A, to make is as small as possible.
Dominique
Review from Kickstarter
@Gordon
Done. I've added a note in your survey!
Gordon
Review from Kickstarter
@Dominique I have updated my backerkit response and selected Blanks, can you help note down that they should be of the ANSI layout? Thank you!

Thanks :) That way i have the silver ANSI & black ISO

@John Christy
Ohhh okay! I see! Let me put a note on your survey to make sure you get that then!
John Christy
Review from Kickstarter
@Dominique
Yes I know all caps won’t fit on ansi I’m only going to use some of the caps to make black/white for certain keys between both keyboards
Dominique
Review from Kickstarter
@Shela and @Yoshitaka
I already made a note that you will get the ANSI layout. @John Christy
The layout for the Japanese keycaps is ISO. Only the EN US has the ANSI layout. This means that some of the Japanese keycaps, like the 'Enter' and 'Shift' keys, won't be able to fit in the ANSI layout. If you select Japanese as your 2nd set, you will get the EN UK keycaps which is also ISO. Let me know what else I can do to help with your decision!
John Christy
Review from Kickstarter
@Dominique
I would like to have my sliver raise to have the ANSI layout with the japanese key caps as my 2nd set. The black one I want to leave it as iso with Japanese keys caps.
Yoshitaka Ishihara
Review from Kickstarter
@Dominique
I decided to go for the blank keycaps so can I also get the ANSI layout for my default? Thanks
Shela
Review from Kickstarter
HI @Dominique
I confirmed my survey information. Would you be able to note that an Blank ANSI layout is required with my survey?
Dominique
Review from Kickstarter
Hi @Shela
You will be given the layout based on the country you're from. Unless you'd want to have a different layout. If so, I can make a note on your survey to specify what layout you want. @Copec the German layout is ISO, so you will be given the English UK keycaps which is also ISO. Yes, you can choose the EN US language for your first keyboard, and for the 2nd one you can choose the German language. With this, you will receive both EN US and EN UK, and the German keycaps. I hope this answers your question! @John Christy, yes you can buy extra black key caps as long as the layout is the same. German and Japanese have the same layout so that will work.
John Christy
Review from Kickstarter
Yeah i 2nd the question @Copec said and i wanted to get set of black key caps also so i can customize mine. As black keys in spots on white keyboard would be awesome
Copec
Review from Kickstarter
If I choose german layout which English layout will be included? I backed two keyoards. Is there a way to get different english layouts for every keyboard additional to the german or are the switch positions different? Thanks for helping me in advance.
Shela
Review from Kickstarter
@Dominique
I noticed that Blank can be selected in the language of my survey.
If I choose Blank, how do I choose whether the layout is ANSI or ISO?
Dominique
Review from Kickstarter
Hey @Yoshitaka if you get the Japanese language, you'll get the English UK keycaps because they have the same layout, which is ISO. The English US layout is ANSI.
Yoshitaka Ishihara
Review from Kickstarter
I chose the Japanese layout as my secondary keycaps, but how do I make sure I get the US layout and not the UK layout for my default?
Dominique
Review from Kickstarter
Hi @Kiran. Sorry about that. We're trying to add the 'Blank keys' option to the Languages but the system is probably still adjusting to the change. I will contact Backerkit to see what the issue is. Don't worry, you'll still be able to make changes to your answer. Thanks for bringing this up!
Kiran Shields
Review from Kickstarter
So I just did the backerkit survey for switches, color, etc. and there weren't actually any language options for me. I could only leave it unanswered or pick blank keycaps. Is it chosen at a later date or something?

Review from Kickstarter
I would prefer number 2, no hub
RC
Review from Kickstarter
I like the hubble with the detachable USB-C cables. I don't mind to loose the USB hub but I really like the hubble desing, because we could, eventually, use our own microcontroller (if you're this kind of guy). But I've two questions. If the whole hubble is removed, where the microcontroller will be? If the USB-A is removed, will the board maintain the connection for it or will it be a redesigned?
Dominique

@Jimmy @Daniel
Thanks for giving your preferences. We will continue listening to everyone's feedback to make the best possible decision. We'll keep you all updated!
Marvin Dannecker
Review from Kickstarter
@Luis and Gordon thanks for answering my question. I might have missed that update but thanks for clarification. I actually prefer the connection with USB Type C, you don't loose the connection when moving + you can exchange the cable easier.
Jimmy Dahlin
Review from Kickstarter
Number 2. No hub, keep it simple.
Daniel Thompson
Review from Kickstarter
My personal preference regarding the Huble would be to have the thicker cable with two USB connectors.
Luis "Deilor" Sevilla
Review from Kickstarter
@Sean and @John Thanks for your feedback. We will continue listening to everyones preferences and keep you updated. @gg23 That would be pretty cool but I have no idea what the cost of developing it would be and if it would be viable from a business point of view. In any case, thanks for sharing it :) @Shela Glad that I could help you :) @John Raise's physical layout won't change with the Japanese keycap set. Some of the thumb keys will be used for the special Japanese keys.
Sean Ryan
Review from Kickstarter
I'd say either take out the extra USB socket or ideally just leave it the way it is.
I really wouldn't like a thicker lead.
John Christy
Review from Kickstarter
My opinion on the huble is just take it out and maybe give us extra switches instead. I don’t see how not having a USB plug on keyboard is a really a big deal to me.

Review from Kickstarter
It would be great if you could develop an advanced/pro version of the Huble in the future which could be connected to 2 (or 3) computers simultaneously and users can switch between active computers using hotkeys.
