New streaming setup is almost...umm...setup. Excuse the over-gunned LED lighting, I had to crank it up to avoid bleaching the screens in the photo.



I decided the new 27L (7G) fish tank wasn't the smartest idea sitting in the middle of $10K+ of gaming equipment, so I took a quick snap before ripping that sucker outta there and moving it to a safer location  :o

A few retro consoles to drop into the spare shelves and the dishes are done. I'd love to slot a backlight into the Pip-Boy display, but that's beyond my meagre electronics skillz.

Upgrade time...

43" 4K 120Hz Asus screen replaces the 32" 1080p Bravia. It's set it to ultrawide 3840 x 1440 for PC gaming and 4K for PS4. This may be replaced with a Samsung Odyssey G9 49" 240Hz 5120 x 1440 screen by year's end, depending on console specs and requirements.


CoolerMaster ControlPad has been added to XIM APEX / Titan Two setup for on-the-fly digital input &/or a macro-pad. GoPro Hero 5 + Lume Cube Air replaced the Razer Kiyo as the hand cam to reduce video lag in OBS.

A second HDMI matrix needs to be wired into the shelves for a Nintendo Switch and a few retro consoles, so it's not quite complete, but is getting there.

The kids go back to school in a week, so I'll start streaming again very soon. J2K at ConsoleTuner is working on something for OBS which I'm hoping to showcase asap.

Brand new setup. PC courtesy of my Trump Bux. Likely the only time I'll directly thank a President for something.


PC Build:

Gigabyte B450M DS3H Motherboard.
Ryzen 3 3200g.
16 gigs of T-force VULCAN Z 3000.
Gigabyte RX 570 (4gig VRAM).

Wow some of you have some nice setups. I will be truthful about mine its messy, so I'm not showing lol. I do lots of modding. But I will tell what my setup consist of. I use N52TE I have two one with cherrie red mod and one with reds and analog also. And I use the Asus gladius 2 mouse for it's great shape, sensor, and the fact that I can replace switches easy without soldering like I had to do with the G9X.

I will say that of my two pads I do prefer wasd instead of analog stick. But if I really stuck with it maybe it would grow on me.

Hello Antithesis, I have had conversations with you on another site where you helped me with coding. I saw your setup and seen you are left handed. Nice setup. I also saw the modular controll pad you are using. Can you give a quick review on the quality of it and if it works with XIM. I will assume yes being you are on this site. Also one more the split keyboard will it work with XIM? I have disability and can not use just any controller. Thanks for any reply.

Hey Scope, the Ergodox EZ split kb works on XIM APEX, but it's very expensive. I use it mostly for work but can swap the right half of it across the desk to play console games. USB switching from Mac to XIM APEX is very reliable (unlike Windows 10) so swapping between devices is very simple.

The gamepad is an Azeron Compact. There's a thread dedicated to Azeron here - https://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=71861. Azeron is right up there with XIMs and Titans in terms of the best console gaming purchases I've made. It's 3D-printed, so it lacks the finish of a mass-produced product, but it looks and feels hand-crafted and works great with XIM is almost every game (I prefer a kb for building in Fortnite).

The smaller keypad is a CoolerMaster ControlPad. More info here - https://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=86547.0. ControlPad's main feature is the analog switches, but it relies on PC software for analog mode. Digital (WASD) mode works on both XIM APEX and Titan Two. Titan Two can pass it through to XIM APEX in analog mode from PC via KMG Capture. Build quality is excellent and it's great if you want a small keypad for console gaming, but the workaround for analog input is expensive (PC and T2, as well as XIM APEX).

I prefer to use an Azeron for analog input and the ControlPad for digital input. Both can be connected to XIM APEX at the same time, but a power adapter is required, as well as a larger USB hub. I currently chain a couple of XIM APEX USB hubs, but have bought a Belkin powered mini 7-port USB hub to replace it (waiting for delivery).

That... is a lot of stuff!

Iím not surprised, as youíve commented on your kit (and helped me with mine) many times, but, dang, six screens? It looks like you could launch satellites from there, dude!

Some quality tech youíve got. I especially like the chair. Iím looking for a fully loaded Herman Miller Aeron on eBay, right now, but Iím patiently waiting for a bargain.

Only a photo of one of your kids? You should love them all equally, antithesis! ;)

Two screens, an iPad and a Google Home Hub Max. I use that mostly for family photos, Google Music, voice Google searches and streaming YouTube or Twitch while working on the Mac.

By the way, I got ControlPad working in analog mode via KMG Capture on Titan Two. Analog is better than a Wooting (not as shallow) but itís no Azeron. Really nice keypad, but Iíd rather a lefty Orbweaver.

Good work. So to go analogue Iíd have to buy a ControlPad and a T2? In your opinion, is it worth it?

Antithesis, I may try getting one of the printed controllers. You did a good job matching the colors. It's a great looking setup.

Itís not worth it. The ControlPad has great build quality, but I canít imagine itís selling well and likely wonít be supported for long.

I play mostly with Azeron these days and find the keypad pretty limiting by comparison. Itís good if I want to swap to WASD or use it as a macro-pad with T2, but I would rather use the Ergodox for the thumb cluster. An analog mod for Orbweaver or Tartarus would probably be the best option for right-handers.

I have a backup Azeron Compact due next week that more closely matches the blue on the kb.
