    The Mouse Software

    The Kone[+] software shares a common theme with the Isku through the use of blue and silver.  Driver and Firmware versions are displayed at the top of the window with settings set across 5 tabs.  Again we find the game profiles along the bottom.
    The Main Control tab provides the core of your mouse functionality.  Sensitivity, scroll speed, Mouse wheel tilt and DPI all get settings.  Out of the box I did find the Double Click rate a bit slow but it's a quick fix I really only noticed in Audacity.

    DPI settings are particularly nice as you can set them on the fly based on your preferences.  I settled in at 3200 DPI for my normal mousing but will jump to 6000 for some games particularly RTS.
    The Button Assignment Tab is where all the customization occurs.  Thanks to the Easy-Shift[+] system each button can have two functions resulting in a total of 22 functions at any time.  Much like Isku, each of the buttons can be assigned manually or through the selection of common functions offered by the dropdown.  The ROCCAT Macro Manager is again available to create macros manually or using one of the presets for the included game types.
