If you have that kind of skill, why not go for a R,G,B LED and put a little knob on the M3.

Regards
James.

I 'think' what Sharp might mean, is rather than having colour LED's which change colour by themselves (like the 1000's of Christmas decorations now hitting the stores !), is it possible for you to add some kind of controller so you decide if you want permanent red, green, blue - or whatever else a multi-colour LED can achieve?

By the way, I tried to look on you tube but couldn't find exactly the right thing. However, this mod might interest you:

You could have the colours on the M3 change when the tempo gets faster (or the sound gets louder Twisted Evil Twisted Evil )

Exactly, there are LED’s out now that can produce any colour they want. They are RGB LED’s, which as the name suggests, they have 3 lights in one. Just like the cell in a TV.

If your going to go to the bother of adding and replacing the LED’s in your M3, then RGB LEDs are what I’d install.

This way if you put a small Pot (Knob) in as a controller, you can just twist the knob at any time you like an change the colour of all the LED’s.

Regards
Sharp.

The 2 or 3 lights led have 3 and 4 inputs( one "-" and 2, 3 "+"). The standard have 2.
Even if i try to do that there is no space for that kind of leds.
Anyway i will need to make another 2 path or even 3 paths in case of 3 lights. So imagine that.
Every single led have two path the "-" and the "+" I will need to make one or two "+" for every single led and because i cant do this on the "printed circuit board" i need to make a standard cables. So... one cable"+" to knob and 3 cables"+" to return and that i need to do with all buttons!
Maybe variable voltage but i am not sure that this way would be ok.

Woah that looks really cool actually, especially the different colors on different modes seems useful.
