Oh man, I'm excited about this. I've done another revision of the Finger Drummer PCB, this time including RGB LED's, front facing, to light the buttons themselves. RGB LED's (Light Emitting Diodes) are LED's that allow you to mix Red, Green and Blue light. This lets you produce any color out of a single LED.
The Finger Drummers can now be configured within Traktor/Ableton to light up, based on any mapable parameter. You can set them to come on based on all sorts of things (loop active status, play status, VU meters, filter position, etc.). This lets you bring a lot of information back to the controller from the DAW. I'll be posting a much more in depth demonstration video of this once I get these all completed. I'm just waiting on the pushbuttons to arrive and the artwork to be finished.
So exciting! I love all these crazy colors!
