Default cannot use number keys and lowercase letters for macros

Hello everybody,

my K30 refuses to accept number keys or lowercase letters in macros.
If try to record the following macro:
(press)LAlt -> (press) 1 -> (release) 1 -> (release)LAlt -> (press)LAlt -> (press) 2 -> (release) 2 -> (release)LAlt
the following will end up being recorded:
(press)LAlt -> (press) ! -> (release) ! -> (release)LAlt -> (press)LAlt -> (press) " -> (release) " -> (release)LAlt

This also happens if just try to record "1", without any modifiers via the software -> advanced options menu.

I also noticed that press the "^" key (next to the 1 on the german layout) results in a "\" and the "´" (next to backspace) in a "]".
Also, if I enter F10 in the "single keystroke" menu the next key few presses will be ignored (noticed it when trying F1 to F12), however this isn't and issue when recording a macro via the MR key.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a general issue with this keyboard / its software (which would really surprise me, given that it would make the macros useless for 95% of the games out there)?

USB Keyboard:
VID: 0x1B1C
PID: 0x1B0A
Manufacturer: Corsair
Product: Corsair K30 Keyboard
Firmware: 1.03
Windows: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

Btw: switching USB Port or reinstalling the Software in english instead of german doesn't help. Already tried that.

Ok, I just figured the main issue out myself.

If you use the num-block keys the software records the actual numbers.

Make kinda sense, if you think about it.
