Seriously Fun Mac and Windows Software

Wave R G B

Dynamic rippling key lights!  LGS and G Hub have never offered this quintessential RGB keyboard effect as a configurable option. Older hardware doesn’t have the mode built-in. Get Wave RGB to see highly-customizable rippling colors around each key as you type.

A couple other utility apps (like Project Aurora) offer versions of this effect on Windows but they bundle other capabilities that you may not want, or create compatibility issues. And Aurora doesn’t run on macOS.

On Windows, the light show can flash across your RGB mouse and headset. Also, it’s compatible with zone lighting on the G213 keyboard.

If you get an error that the app could not connect to LogiLED, the solution is to install the latest version of LGS from Logitech even if you use G-Hub.  Installing LGS will provide the missing Logitech software bridge. You don’t have to start up LGS when you boot up, just have it installed.

The app is designed for US-layout per-key RGB keyboards. Results will vary on European keyboard layouts.

If Windows shows a security warning when you open the app the first time, click the “More Info” link in the warning window and click Open Anyway. The warning will not appear again.

Click to download for macOS 10.13+

Wave RGB version 2.0.1

Version 2.0 features easy background color changes and corrections for WIN and ALT key lighting.

Tested with LGS 8.98.306 and 9.0.20

Not compatible with G Hub on Mac. Rings will not appear if G Hub is installed due to old Mac API support from Logitech.

Version 2 features in in-app editor for the color rings.  Using the LGS Applet settings screen is no longer required so G Hub users can join in the fun!

New pop-up menus for the background light color and 11 flashy ring presets make Wave RGB better than ever!  The ring recipes are now included and just a click away.

Spark up to 5 rings of color with each key press. Choose any color, any size, and how long each ring will appear. Animate each ring’s size & visibility over time. Use delay to echo rings from each key press.
