post #7191 of 14567
It's just so freaking nice to have a keyboard that isn't squeaking; even my domer's space bar was squeaking for the month I used it.

Yeeeeeeeee!

Oh okay thanks Crazy9000, liked the 2nd keyboard on that vid better than the ffirst I think.

Now the brown ones sound AWEFUL:
http://geekhack.org/showwiki.php?title=Island:4495

perhaps he is heavy handed? It does sound rushed I guess.

But I think it is now decided. If the blues are at least 'above average' but better than a rubber dome keyboard anyway, then I will get the Filco Blues.
I just hope that I won't keep everyone up late up night...would be hard to relocate my system to another room, lol!

Thanks everyone!

edit:

If I'm thinking [reverb] means delayed sound/slight echo then no it doesn't because I am in a small room so hopefully it would sound like the noise on the geekhack link



yes ok thanks I will deffo listen to more vids/aud samples: trying to make a good choice and hopefully not regret it...although I have a funny feeling that eventually I will get the browns and blacks at one point in the distant future anyway lol
Yeah that Brown recording sounds like he is just mashing keys, not doing any kind of realistic typing, although could be a good "gaming sounds" benchmark.

I like the part where he presses the key then 10 seconds later the sound appears.
The audio and video was perfectly synchronized for me. I guess it might've just been a fluke for you. I've seen that video dozens of times, and I've never had any audio/video sync issues with it (it was one of my favorite videos when I was trying to decide on my first and only mechanical keyboard).

The best thing to do is to just listen to the audio very carefully while pretending that you are there in person. The result is that it's usually pretty obvious what quality recording you're dealing with. Like in both that unboxing video as well as that HotHardware video, the audio quality is decent thanks to a relatively decent HD camcorder. Of course, it would be better with decent condenser microphones, mic preamps, etc.

That's a decent one. It's actually easy to tell which keystrokes are bottomed out and which ones aren't!

He has a light touch, but yet every keystroke was bottomed out. Plus, the mids on this audio clip are a bit high (it sounds a tad bit on the nasally side). It's not the best representation of the sound that the Tactile Touch makes. So, watch more videos.

Due to how careful you're being, I can almost guarantee you that you're going to feel that your mechanical keyboard (whichever one you get) is significantly superior to whatever you have now. I upgraded from both the Razer Lycosa and the Logitech G15, and the difference between those keyboards and the Tactile Click is night and day.

The clicks of the Cherry MX Blues are quieter than the sound of bottoming out.

Reverb and echo are actually two different things. Echo is a repetition of sound while reverb is just sustained sound. A perfect example of reverb is the kind of sound you get in a gymnasium: the sound doesn't repeat, but instead every sound is just sustained and gradually fades away. But if that gymnasium had thick carpet on the floor, walls and ceiling, then the there would be almost no reverb at all. So there's typically absolutely no reverb in a bedroom due to all of the sound-absorbing materials like carpet and the bed combined with the small size of the room.

Anyway, I'm very confident that you'll absolutely love the sound. I'm also confident that it won't be too loud at all.

Yeah, if I had the money as well as the physical space, then I'd probably have at least a dozen different mechanical keyboards by now - and I've only been into mechanical keyboards since late February of this year.

Typing up ebay descriptions is a lot of work. As is taking pictures of all the items. (Especially when you're selling a ****ton of 80-something NES games complete with boxes and accessories)

There's actually a huge market for old Nintendo stuff, it's fairly incredible. I saw this NIB World Class Track Meet (or something like that) sell for 40 grand. There's only two NIB copies in existence, and barely any copies to begin with.

In a sense, you kinda did. I mean, for those of us who know that you have a Das Model S, it should sound like you're saying "but it's a pleasure to do that with my Model S", or something to that effect. Or, "It used to be a lot of work, but not anymore!"

Actually the best single source of keyboard sound recordings on the whole Intertoobs are the ones I did since it's all using the same equipment, same typing sequences, same volume settings, and same setup for the mike placement. Link.
