The last keyboard I'll ever need
My keyboard history: Keyboard #1: Ducky - LEDs died within a year. A piece of junk, but hooked me on mechanical keyboards. Keyboard #2: WASD Code - great keyboard, lasted for a couple of years, but (a) the ABS keys eventually wore through and (b) there are better switches than Cherry MX Browns, so . . . Keyboard #3: CTRL - fantastic keyboard. Outfitted with Hako Royal Clears for most of the keys, except for some keys (like Enter) which got a Kailh Box Navy (for a little click) and some keys (like the shift keys) which got Hako True Violets (my pinkies don't bang the keys as hard as the rest of my fingers). The CTRL is probably the last keyboard I'll ever need. Don't like the switches? Swap 'em out! Don't like the backlight colors? Reprogram 'em. Don't like they keycaps? Buy new ones. Now all I need is a 21-key numeric keypad to match it. (NUM Mechanical Keyboard, anyone?) UPDATE Feb 2, 2021: Still love this keyboard. No double-typing issues (yet). Still waiting for a matching keypad . . .

Would recommend to a friend.
Got mine yesterday and couldn’t be happier with it. The board is absolutely gorgeous. Everything works great and the led features and bright and vibrant. 10/10 would buy again but I hope they don’t make it again so I can lord it over all my friends hahaha. Can’t wait to get some of the key caps I’m waiting on from massdrop to customize it. https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment/KYTRtoIPQCGI18hj6g00_E3A52633CE0D49E989AE43FE76796CEE.jpeg

Can I change the keycaps on this keyboard?
Not just the keycaps. You can also change the switches to your liking.
Is this keyboard loud?
It depends on what switches are installed. The switches are easy to change with the included switch removal tool.

When can we get a European layout, with the bigger Enter key and smaller left shift? I'm waiting for this layout to order.

What are you doing to address QMK dropping support for Massdrop removal?
Reference: Build warning: This MCU support package has a lack of support from the upstream provider (Massdrop). There are currently questions about valid licensing, and at this stage it's likely
their boards and supporting code will be removed from QMK in the near future. Please contact Massdrop for support, and encourage them to align their future board design choices to gain proper license compatibility with QMK.

Where can I find the default LED backlight c source code? I already know about configurator but I want to have an original source.
