What is USB Overdrive?
The USB Overdrive is a device driver for macOS that handles any USB or Bluetooth mouse, keyboard, trackball, joystick, gamepad or gaming device from any manufacturer and lets you configure it either globally or on a per-application, per-device basis. Note that the Apple Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad are not handled by the USB Overdrive to let macOS implement its full multitouch support.
The USB Overdrive reads all kinds of wheels, buttons, keys, switches and controls and assigns them to useful actions like clicking, typing, scrolling, launching, opening documents and so forth. It can easily handle several devices at once and can assign different settings to each one.
The current version of the USB Overdrive works with macOS 12.x Monterey and macOS 11.x Big Sur. The previous release works in macOS 10.15 Catalina, macOS 10.14 Mojave, 10.13 High Sierra, 10.12 Sierra and 10.11 El Capitan. Older releases are available for ancient macOS versions.

I have tried Karabiner and USB OVERDRIVE and I love the ease of use of this app. And it does 99% of what I want. Got this instead of razer synaps where it wants force you to sign in, share your keylogs and all that. This app is recommended.
Brain-dead simple configuration, integrates nicely with macOS and handles tons of devices. I use it in place of Logitech's mouse and keyboard drivers.
It's a great utility, it just falls short because it does not distinguish between left and right Control, Option/Alt, and Shift for apps (MAME, some games, etc) that need it. I'm taking a guess that the options that do exist are only for the left side keys.
