Software and Summary
As with most gaming mice, the Clutch GM60 will function just fine as a plug-and-play solution. In its out-the-box state, the 11 LEDs are all permanently on and set to red, and the DPI toggle switch will alternate between four levels of sensitivity: 1,000, 1,800, 2,800 and 3,600 DPI.
The default settings are sufficient for most users, but you'll want to download the accompanying apps to make the most of the customisation options. MSI's apps sadly aren't available from the Windows Store, but both Mystic Light and Gaming Center are available as free downloads from msi.com. The former is helpful if you have a range of MSI products with RGB lighting and want to synchronise effects, but mouse-only users will only need Gaming Center.
MSI's first tab, Buttons (pictured above), is self-explanatory and allows for each of the eight buttons to be mapped to a function of your choice, including keyboard keys, multimedia shortcuts and macros. The built-in macro recorder works well enough, with the added ability of custom delays, but having key presses show up in another language reveals that the software is still rough around the edges.
The Sensor tab is where the bulk of the customisation will take place. MSI allows for independent sensitivity adjustments on both axis, as well as a choice of polling rates and lift-off distances. Just about everything you're likely to need, though do be mindful when making changes to the five available profiles, as there doesn't appear to be an easy way to revert the sensor to default settings.
Finally, the LED tab provides fine-grained control over the 11 RGB lights, with the option for common effects such as breathe, cycle and rainbow. Getting a colour-match with your other hardware shouldn't be difficult, but if you like everything to be in sync you may lament the fact that the three DPI LEDs on top of the mouse are fixed to red and can't be changed.
