Introducing GMMK Numpad

Glorious HQ

August 04, 2022

Meet the GMMK Numpad - our first fully customizable wireless macro pad.

 

The development of this product has been a long journey for us. Over the last few years, a Glorious Numpad has been one of the most requested products by our community.  

But we did not want to create another boring numpad. It needed to be innovative, premium, beautiful, and meet the needs of any user - keyboard enthusiasts, gamers, streamers, creators, and productivity.

GMMK Numpad packs a full suite of powerful features, several of which have never before been seen on a pad available outside of the enthusiast world.

Its 17 mechanical keys, clickable rotary knob, and convenient slider are all fully configurable for a near-limitless array of uses.

Intentionally engineered as a perfect companion to GMMK PRO and GMMK 2 65%, its sleek aesthetic and anodized aluminum case offer unparalleled versatility for almost any setup. Powerful Bluetooth 5.0 LE connectivity delivers reliable wireless functionality, and a hotswap PCB makes changing your switches effortless.

The GMMK Numpad comes out of the box ready to use with pre-lubed Glorious Fox Switches, GSV2 stabilizers, and shine-through ABS Doubleshot V2 keycaps. But it has been designed for complete customizability, nearly every component can be replaced with ease.

An ecosystem of accessories will be available at launch, allowing you to fine-tune your pad to your personal style - including switches, switch plates, top frames, knobs, sliders, and even a PCB.  

A perfect mix of form, function, and versatile features - there is no other pad quite like this one.

FAQ

 

Will I be able to see any reviews for the GMMK Numpad before completing my order?

Yes, a very limited number of trusted independent reviewers have been given early access to GMMK Numpad prior to launch. Their reviews will go live on the launch date.

 

Will the GMMK Numpad be available on Amazon?

No, at launch the GMMK Numpad will only be available through the gloriousgaming.com website and our international partners.

 

Will accessories be available at the same time as the main product?

Yes, most accessories will be available for pre-order at the same time as the Numpad, and are expected to ship at the same time. However, unforeseen circumstances could cause delays.

 

Is the Hotswap PCB North or South Facing?

The GMMK Numpad comes default with North-Facing LEDs, which offer maximum RGB shine through and brightness. However, we are also offering a South-Facing PCB sold separately for those who wish to modify their boards to their preferred orientation and compatibility.

 

Is GMMK Numpad a Main Range or Glorious Forge release?

Numpad will be a main range release, meaning it will eventually be fully in stock. However, initial quantities are limited.

 

Can the GMMK Numpad be used in wired mode too?

Yes, the GMMK Numpad can be used both wired and wirelessly. A braided USB-C charging cable is included in the box.

 

Can I pair the GMMK Numpad to my mobile device, tablet, MacBook, etc.?

Yes, the GMMK Numpad uses Bluetooth 5.0 LE technology and pairs with most compatible devices. However, certain features require Glorious CORE software to be installed on the device to function properly.

 

Do I need a dongle to pair the GMMK Numpad wirelessly with my device?

It depends on your device. Some desktop PCs may lack a Bluetooth receiver, which is required for pairing. If your device does have a Bluetooth receiver, then no dongle is required. Note: This is not the same technology as our 2.4Ghz wireless mice.

 

What can I control with the slider and rotary knob?

By default, both control system volume. However, you can reprogram both inputs to control separate audio channels via Glorious CORE software. Only the rotary knob is capable of channel switching through the use of optional keyboard shortcuts. At this time, reassigning the slider must be done through Glorious CORE. More functions are coming soon for the slider and knob – please don’t hesitate to send us your suggestions on social media!

 

Does the GMMK Numpad’s color and finish match the GMMK PRO/GMMK 2?

Yes, the GMMK Numpad is anodized to perfectly match the GMMK PRO and very closely match the GMMK 2.

 

Do I need to own a Glorious Keyboard to use GMMK Numpad?

No, GMMK Numpad is its own device with its own Glorious CORE integration. It does not rely on other Glorious products to operate.

 

Do all Glorious keycap sets fit the GMMK Numpad?

Yes, no add-on kits required. This includes both ANSI and ISO versions.

 

Does the GMMK PRO’s rotary knob fit the GMMK Numpad?
Yes, they are the exact same product.

 

Does the GMMK Numpad use GSV2 stabilizers?

Yes, the GMMK Numpad comes with pre-lubed GSV2 stabilizers and accepts most third-party screw-in options.

 

Does the slider require a tool to replace?

No, replacing both the GMMK Numpad’s slider and knob is quick, easy, and tool-free.

 

Can I install my own accent badge?

Yes, you can replace the accent badge with one of our options or any badge of your choice that fits. Requires disassembly of the GMMK Numpad. We recommend a Phillips #00 screwdriver.

 

Will you offer other badges in the future?

That's the plan!

 

Comments

Alexander:

Will we be able to replace the larger modifier keys on the board with normal keys to make a 20 key macro pad?

August 10, 2022

yes:

ok

Justin:

Looks really interesting, but I have to agree with some of the others, it would be great if it could come with the south-facing PCB as an option out of the box. That way it could match my GMMK Pro without having the e-waste that would come along with just tossing out the north-facing PCB.

Nate:

This thing looks great – but the price point feels way off. $130 for a numpad, but only $30 more buys me the behemoth that is the GMMK Pro? A fraction of the Aluminum, remarkably similar tooling required, same number of encoders, a fraction of the hotswap sockets. A slider does not make up for that cost delta, IMHO. Again – neat design, but I’ll pass this one up unless the price comes back down to reality.

Michael:

Could we get the dimensions/will this match the gmmk pro in width or is it shorter?

August 08, 2022

Painless:

Bummer, nobody said anything about this as maybe being a thing so I just bought (2) Keycron (spelling) aluminum numpads. I would have happily purchased these from Glorious and would rather have done so but so much for informing the public before hand. :-)

Kai:

I wish we can use the rotary knob as a scroll wheel so it can be used to zoom in and out in game too.

August 05, 2022

Phil:

Though super excited for this to add to my GMMK Pro the price is very restrictive to import into the UK.
It’s only $5 away from being hit with import duty (like my Pro was) and as it’s only in black or white and I’ll have to buy the accessories to get it to match my Aqua Blue Pro, I think I’ll have to wait until the sales or Black Friday next year to avoid import duty.

Great idea just too expensive for those who don’t live in the US.

August 05, 2022

Dexter:

Do you have any plans to release E-white (others..) ?

August 05, 2022

Ethan:

I hope there’s a barebone version where we choose what we want such as with the pcb, I’d rather have an option to only get the south facing pcb so that I’m not wasting what I don’t want/need.

August 05, 2022

Andrew:

Finally! However, given it costs more than the keyboard I’m pairing it with, I think I will wait for a price drop…

August 05, 2022

Luna:

Does this mean that we will get Glorious Core for Mac as well?

August 05, 2022

Nicholas:

It doesn’t explicitly say, but is this QMK compatible?

August 05, 2022

Martin:

Man I gotta say, I’m super excited for this. Consider me signed up. Will there be a barebones version offered on launch?

August 04, 2022

Terry :

Do you have any plans for a 4×6 ortholinear version, or only this one requiring stabilizers?
