receive midi light up the keys

Recommended Posts


I'm about to buy Lk-280, but before doing so, I would like to ask you a specific question.

I would like to use lk-280 in a certain configuration with my DAW:

While enabling "key lights off" mode; would piano keys still light up when lk-280 will receive midi signal from my computer?

In other words: I want to be able to press down a key without it being lit up. However I would like the key lights to be controlled by midi signal from my computer (via usb cable) simultanously. I don't want to see feedback of my fingers, just midi notes coming from my computer.

It would be perfect if it is possible.


Thanks for helping me.

No!  The Key Lighting feature of the LK keyboards is not that sophisticated.  When Key Lighting is ON the keys will light when a "Note On" signal is received from any of the three possible sources - the key board, the internal song player, or an external sequencer (PC, etc), but it can not differentiate among the sources - that is ON for one of the sources while OFF for the others.
