Default RGB Keyboard Visualizer for Windows

I've made a new music visualizer app for the K70 RGB (along with Razer Chroma SDK), this time only for Windows using some Windows specific features to make it work better and easier to set up. It has a user interface now with some configurable settings and does not require a loopback device such as Virtual Audio Cable or Stereo Mix like my previous visualizer required. Simply download the program, set a static lighting profile (no reactive or effects, just a static color) in CUE, open my program, and start playing some music. The only other requirement is installing Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 (32 bit).

Source:
https://github.com/CalcProgrammer1/K...VisualizerVCUI

Latest Build (v1.04):
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1F...ew?usp=sharing

Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (get the 32 bit version):
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=48145

YouTube Demo:

It definitely works with K70 RGB US layout and a YouTube user helped me add support for the German layout. Let me know if your particular layout has any missing LEDs and I'll try to add support for it. Same goes for K95 RGB/K65 RGB as these have a different USB PID/VID and won't work at all without additional support.

New build 1.04 adds a color wheel background option.

You should ask Elestriel for the PID/VID values. Pretty shre she knows most if not all of them.

I'd love to use this with my K95 RGB (CH-9000062-NA), and maybe even my Scimitar. Is that possible? I'm not sure how to get the USB PID/VID for you, but if you tell me how, or give me a link saying how, I'll get right on that.

Looks like a great program, especially since you don't have to exit CUE (macros don't work anymore when CUE's closed!).

Elestriel updated hers. Id say she has the best one because she has been adding to hers for a while. http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=139027

Thanks. Last time I looked at that one I had to exit CUE, I see I don't have to anymore.

I'll try it on the STRAFE RGB when My Brother in law stops playin' ANNO 2205......


It didn't do anything to my static profile when I played some music in Winamp..

Was that really necessary?


As to the topic at hand, thanks for the profile I'll give it a whirl and I look forward to seeing where you take it.

why not just have the one with the most features? no offense to this one or anything im just pointing out what has already been being developed by Elestriel for a LONG time which means its more improved.
Good job on the software non the less.

Why limit yourself to one? If we used that same logic then we could just all go home after the first profile was made. I presume Elestriel had to start somewhere much as the OP is doing now, why not give the OP time and encouragement to continue working on their profile rather than shooting them down? It just seemed needlessly harsh to trash their efforts and promote a similar profile in their thread.

Why remake the wheel? Why not just improve it? I'm not intending to trash his efforts, instead of taking it offensively, take it as advice, maybe he can take what Elestriel has made and improve it. And even collaborate with Elestriel to make the best of the best instead of having everyone remake the wheel. By showing him that there is competition, it can influence him to make an even better one. If there is no competition, there is less improvement.

This is a software, not a profile.

Maybe if you had offered it as advice and not in the form of a snarky put down then a recommendation to use someone else's profile or software, if you want to split hairs, then the OP would maybe take it as such.

I don't see what harm the OP is doing, I also don't subscribe to the rather childish view that this is somehow a competition, why can't the OP simply enjoy what they are doing without you trying to play them off against someone else.

TL;DR Just let the OP enjoy what they are doing and don't use it if you don't like it.

Youre clearly taking everything the wrong way, im not trying to forcing anything on anyone, not to discourage anyone, nor am i not allowing anyone to enjoy their own creation, am i wrong to suggest improvement and competition? It all depends on the type of person you are. None of what i said was a put down unless you see it as one. maybe what i said will encourage him?

Originally Zirq was asking how he can use this on his K95 and Scimitar so I gave him a working alternative, didnt intend to harm anyone

You didn't do any of those things and it isn't a mater of taking things the wrong way, here I'll quote your comments and break it down for you since you seem to be struggling:

"Elestriel already made one tho http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=139027"

That isn't advice or encouragement, you are basically saying why bother someone else already did it, trying to claim anything different is frankly hilarious.

"Elestriel updated hers. Id say she has the best one because she has been adding to hers for a while. http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=139027"

I literally cringed myself a set of wrinkles reading that, I realise you are still a child but really. Again this isn't advice or encouragement, unless you consider encouraging people to ignore the OP's work and look elsewhere as encouragement, it really isn't.

Again it's not a matter of me seeing anything and simply a matter of reading what you wrote, better to just own what you said instead of squirming around and trying to put a non existent positive spin on it.
