Configure each individual RGB light to function how you like. It's as simple as changing the settings in the software. 8+ predefined RGB modes are included but making your own is an option too!
Use the LEDs to represent what "layer" you are currently on.
Make a Mix with Midi
Turn your device into a Midi controller and control the audio level of individual programs. Just press a button and turn the knob.
Midi is a powerful protocol and many other applications support it. Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, audio software, Adobe Premiere.
The gif shows our Macropad R26 but the concept is the same!
Easy to Program
The programming is easy thanks to an open source program called VIAL. The interface is easy to use. It lets you control the action of each button press and knob to do whatever you like instantly without flashing new firmware or doing anything complicated.
Vial can run in the browser too if you are unable to download software.
More information on VIAL can be found here. QMK code and VIA firmware is also available to download
