I didnt want to sound like an ahole but I was thinking just put a piece of tape or sumn over the light if it's driving ya that crazy. You gotta remember chicks love flashing lights when they come in the studio, it makes them think we know what we're doing ;)

OK then! I now have a nice piece of black electrical tape on my brand new Ren to cover this completely unnecessary constant flashing light.

Like MPC-Tutor said, it should be quite simple for Akai to program something about that!

I wonder what would be the best way to send Akai a message about that...

I think all the Red buttons are too bright actually. The Q-Link lights are fine, but all the other Red function buttons are so bright that it's hard to read what the button is when your in a low lit room. Won't really matter once you memorize the buttons though I guess!

That didn't turn it off for me, can anyone confirm?

On the 5K it is extremely easy to turn it off.. Also, is there a way to turn off the pad lights by default (creating a default set up, period on the Ren), without having to open a template?
Thx
