Permanent backlight glow for controls
« on: January 10, 2019, 06:46:43 pm »
Hi anyone,
i received my KeyLab 49 MK2 today. Its really an awesome controller.

However, i already have one simple idea and wish for a feature:
Is it possible to get an option to always backlight/dim the controls?

Obviously its already implemented on some controls, as my transport controls and the mode-selection permanently lights up dimmed.
But the rest of the controls is just dark.
Especially on the pad controls and the channel/category select button on the right, this would improve orientation a lot when your not working in bright daylight.

Would be cool to get a feedback on my idea ;-)
Thanks for your attention

+1 for this.

I bought the controller for both studio and stage use.

On a dark stage, in user mode, illuminating buttons that you've assigned controls to helps you do your job.

You've got awesome rgb LED's in there, please let us use them!  If they are only on when pressed, they are under my fingers, and I can't see them anyway.  An illumination option in the Midi Control Center config panel for the control would make much better use of the hardware.  I'd gladly throw some software development hours at it if it's a resource issue.  I do embedded dev, hit me up!

Regards
