Keyboard Lights 2 - Make keyboard's lock lights dance to music.

Staff review

Haha... this is clever

Utilize your normally boring Num/Caps/Scroll lock buttons by turning them into beat detecting madness. Not the most useful plug-in, but, it's still amusing. -dg


Great Plug-in! - August 17, 2010 by Andy A

I seriously heart this plug in. - Yeah, it actually changes the different states. But it's still really freakin cool. But, I have a laptop, so, sadly, I don't have a scroll lock light, and the num and caps are on opposite sides. But it still looks cool tho. I wouldn't mind typing (just for chatting or blogging) with the caps changing, but, again, laptop, so the keypad is on top of the numbers, so... I gET Th5s, whIch 5S A 3ItTLe hArdeR t6 reaD.. BUT nOT T6O HOrriBlE. And it does kinda mess the mouse up. But chill out people, just use for fun when you're not too busy.. and close when you're done and all is well. - September 11, 2005 by Shanna Lee

first one was better... - I like this plugin but in my opinion the first one was better for it didn't affect the actual states of the num/caps/scroll lock. fix this and it will be perfect. - July 4, 2005 by Jesus Nazareth

wow - i love it!!so cool! - May 7, 2005 by Elefunk Forslund

original and good - The idea of blinking "lock"-lamps have never ever crossed my mind before... But i love it! - February 9, 2005 by Jonatan Kindh

Pretty cool - This is a very unique plug-in that's fun to watch. I was kind of disappointed that you can't watch AVS visualizations at the same time, though. - February 4, 2005 by Lord Patent

LOVely - LogGing ofF OF WINdows wiTh tHis thiNg enablED WAS The bIggEST MISTAKE i'VE maDe ThIS WEek - August 14, 2003 by mod em

Nice, but unusable - It does what it says: blink the keyboard lights in time to the music. Unfortunately it does it by rapidly toggling the _actual_ key states (e.g. caps lock on/off) rather than just twiddling the lights. This makes actually using the computer while this plugin is running rAtHeR dIfFiCuLt. - July 7, 2003 by Andrew Rich

looks funny, but... - fucks up yer typing, - April 26, 2003 by Kamagurka Hagaki

HaHaHHaaHha - HaHa its screwing with my caps lock. This thing is funneh - January 11, 2003 by chris wilson

Origional as hell, But... - BAdass Plug-in, soesn't react well to my type of music tho (metal) because it doesn't have the clearly defined beats, such as Techno does. If your a Raver, this is the Plug-in for you. - January 6, 2003 by Phlux Phlux

Really Hot!! - This is the coolest thing i have downloaded for winamp. - November 22, 2002 by Aaron Alger

c00l - this is the c00lest thing i have tested - July 5, 2002 by nino danonino

hmm not usefull for me sry - haha maybe a nice plugin but it isnt something for me.. i have a wireless keyboard without these lights for the status.. - June 22, 2002 by Ralf Kutzner

Cool enough, but...... - I like the options given with this version of keyboard light plug-in, however.... 2 of the styles freeze my mouse, and the other makes movement extremely erratic. Fix this issue and I would run this plug-in forever!! - June 17, 2002 by Heath Kraft

hahaha i love it - The most uselss piece of junk i've ever downloaded in my life but i love it!!! The coolest piece of useless junk ever!! keep it up! - June 11, 2002 by brandon Denton

OH MY GOD! - HOW DID YOU DO THAT!?!? THIS IS SOOOOOO COOL!!!! I LOVE THIS THING!!!! - May 22, 2002 by Jennifer Guyton

This is great! - lol if you're ever bored.. hours of bored stupid fun watching these lights dance to the beats of your winamp music, download this, its just plain fun! and it doesnt really turn on your caps or anything, just the - April 8, 2002 by David Cain

different - but very cool, shame that on NT based OS's the actual state of the keys is changed, must be something to do with the security. Anyway good work - March 19, 2002 by Stephen Ball

Sorry, I'm a retard - HAHA. For got ya gotta go start the plugin for it to work. Awesome Idea - February 16, 2002 by Strap Frazzl

funny,but.. - It's a funny thing, but how long u want to watch your keybord LEDs? And works well by me only, when only Winamp is running. When my machine is more busy - then mouse cursor get frozen - and this is not funny anymore... - February 16, 2002 by jacek karma

crashed - This was cool for a short time until winamp froze over and over until I deleted the plug-in. nice idea but needs work. - January 26, 2002 by rick stein

Great Idea! - It's a good idea. Butyou could try to syncronize the music with the light movements better next time. Otherwise it's awesome!!!!! - January 18, 2002 by Reneti Hanketi

help - i cant rate this .... i dont no ho wit works......its not in general .......if any1 nows email me or if u have msn add me at [email protected] - December 22, 2001 by Hector Arambula

It's Ok - Well, it was fun for all of about 30 seconds, then it just got annoying. It also froze winamp on several occations. All in all, it just wasn't worth downloading for blinking lights. - December 20, 2001 by Adam Norris

COOL!! - check the lights@!!!! - December 2, 2001 by Bouke Versteegh

Neat - The coolest among all, but has any connection with rythm. - December 2, 2001 by Asdf Qwerty

Great - It's a great program, but I wish it didn't actually affect the modes, such as Caps lock. It was very hard trying to type this when it was running (I'm not into that kiddy alternating caps "coolness"). This is just something else on my computer to freak out my family. Mwahaha. - October 5, 2001 by Laebshade Lampcover

A Great Plug To Show Off, Not For Everyday Use... - Impress your friends with your keyboard! Say it's your own plug! Just kidding. Actually I dont reccomend using this every day. First off, it sometimes screwes up docuMEnts your TypiNg. See what I mean? Second, don't use MouseKeys with it. Your mouse will go nuts. - August 7, 2001 by Fareed Ahmed

we only come out at night... - keen idea, fast download, crashed winamp. (illegal operation) win98 2nd ed. erg. keyboard. - August 3, 2001 by j h

nice plugin - works great for me. - July 19, 2001 by j m

CoOl - thIS SIdeEFFect WIth wiERd TYpInG is NeAT WHeN UsINg Irc =) - July 13, 2001 by Christian Axelsson

Iike it - Brillant. It doesn't make any difference to your typeing unless I'm very luckly and am typing this inbetween the CapsLock comeing on, but I find that very unlikly! - July 4, 2001 by Giles Cotterill

good ol' kbd - This has gotta be _THE COOLEST_ VisPluggie around. No Geiss or any s*ht like that can beat the flashin' keyboard! _Respect_ the creator Stefan! Thanks d00d! - July 3, 2001 by Jorma Kyttyrďż˝

Wicked - Kool but what is the point? - June 30, 2001 by Dean Marsden

COOL - I JUST LIKE THESE THINGS - June 29, 2001 by Norretix .

amazingly brilliant - how the hell did you accomplish this a very well deserved 5* - June 28, 2001 by matt pen

Very nice plug-in. - 7h|$ ?|u61? ?0x0r! You have to try it, but, when it's in use you could get some problems with other programs.. Turn it of after use ;) - June 26, 2001 by Multiflex W&M2001

Sounds nifty, but it crashes my Winamp - When I try to view the Visualizations set-up page in Winamp, everything comes to a screeching halt. Delete the dll, everything's normal again. - June 9, 2001 by Jared Stein

Thought it was cool, but .... - This program looked like it was going to be cool, but it's a worthless hack! It doesn't blink the lights (that would be cool) it actually toggles your caps, num, and scroll lock status, rendering your computer completely unusable while the plugin is active. Well, unless you just want to use the mouse, I guess. - June 6, 2001 by joe blow

coool!!!! - whoa! what's happening` with my keyboard. funky, groovy channel keyboard - June 4, 2001 by IAN LYMAN

Very Cool - Very good idea, works great. It would be much much better if you made it more freindly to windows, with the plugin on normal tpying is not possible. - May 28, 2001 by Joseph Battistelli

This is cool - This is pure and simply... sweet. I would never thought it posible... - May 23, 2001 by Steve Wojciechowski

gotta love it! - it is so cute!!! And not to mention neat! make one that flashes lights along the bottom of the screen to, or makes the start bar flash lights in random positions and ill be really impressed!!! but a clever job!!! - May 20, 2001 by Nic Borrott

Handy bugga' - Very cool i do like this,dancing keyboard,who'da knows :) - May 20, 2001 by Mike Treadwell

My god... - What will they think of next, eh? My laptop looks brilliant now. If only it had the capability to make the power and hard-disk lights flicker on and off without me having to reboot ;) Brilliant vis with lots of nice customisations to play with. I love it! - May 16, 2001 by Tom Staight

Very Amusing! - Neat little program. Try it with the lights turned off. I used to play with those lights all the time, now, all I have to do is sit back and watch. - May 12, 2001 by Jon Miranda

Great fun with Keyboard Lights ;) - When you got bored with fuzzy vis,I recommend you Keyboard Lights 2. It is a kind of fun to watch those lights flashing with rythms lol - May 11, 2001 by Alexander Wong AmD911
