"Breathe" mode is also one of the options that are pretty simple to figure out. Here you can select a color for the dim to light, and back to dim effect, this offers. You also have the option to change the speed of the pulsation of light.

If you desire something different still, maybe try this "ripple" mode. You can select color and speed here, but neither Customize nor Random seemed to make a difference in the mode. This is like throwing a stone in a pond with each key press.

"MultiLayer" makes it all very interesting. Here you can use the checkboxes to enable multiple modes at once. So you could have the Color Wave enabled, and the ripple effect, both working at the same time. There is a drop-down box that offers these fist five modes selectable.

This image just shows that we also find the last five options to choose from. You can even leave the layer empty, which turns all the LEDs off.

Moving past the game Snake that we saw on the RAPID-I, just, this time, offered in full color. We get to the "System Status" mode. Currently, we have the equalizer selected, and with Pandora playing in the background, we see three bands of color, and the EQ is a running pulse style, more like a ticker tape in the presentation.

The CPU Loading option works very well too. With the PC at rest, there is a sporadic blue blip that runs across the bottom of the keyboard. As we fired up a stress test, with the CPU at full load, the keyboard lights entirely, ending in red to let you know you are at the upper limit of usage to the processor.

While we showed all of the images on just one profile, there are four that can be held within the onboard memory of the MCU. The Library tab allows you to keep a list of many more profiles you may create. They can be renamed for easy clarification. The backup folder is also contained onboard, and not saved to the drive so that you can still have an army of profiles, for whatever game may spring up.
