    I met someone who had a mechanical keyboard, I loved it so much I went out and bought one myself. I'm using it now, and the only drawback I can think of is that it doesn't have any media keys at all, just your basic 105 or whatever the number is. I bought the Das Keyboard, this one in particular.

    Is there some way of turning a couple of keys into media keys? Maybe like scroll lock or something I hardly ever touch. I just need Next Track, Previous Track, and volume up, volume down would be nice as well. What would be the best way to accomplish this?

    I feel stupid o_O Winamp had it in it's options to do what I needed. I made Ctrl + Alt then the arrow keys do what I need. Up is volume up, down lowers it, right is next track and left is previous.
