Setting up the Tactile Pro 2.0 on Mac OS X

The Silver/Black version of the Tactile Pro 2.0 comes pre-programmed for Windows, and with the Optimizer features activated.

The White version of the Tactile Pro 2.0 comes pre-programmed for Mac, and with the Optimizer features NOT activated.

Both the Silver/Black and the White versions of the Tactile Pro 2.0 are electronically identical, and can be programmed for either Windows or Mac, with or without Optimizer features.

In order to re-program your Tactile Pro 2.0 for Mac, please follow the instructions below.

Once you re-program the keyboard with the desired layout and features, please note that no other special software or drivers are required - the keyboard layout (and the Optimizer features, if chosen) are now programmed into the keyboard.
