How to use a Pro Micro as a cheap controller/converter

I didn''t think to try another keyboard. Well I connected a Focus 2001 through the pro micro and it at least sort of works, some keys repeat but it does type, meanwhile the Model F does nothing. So that seems to confirm that something is wrong with the keyboard, thats too bad. Well thanks anyway.

I think I've seen reports of the usb connector on the pro micro's not being very secure and that one would need to glue them. Is this a general issue?

I certainly wouldn't like to trust them far. I boxed mine up in such a way that there's no strain/wiggling on the socket.
