Welcome to SignalRGB!
This quick-start guide will get you up and running in no time!
1. Downloading and Installing
To install SignalRGB on your computer, first download it from our website here. Then, click on the installer you just downloaded to install the program onto your computer. If everything goes as planned, you should end up on the SignalRGB Dashboard page. This is where you can view and download lightscripts.
2. Setting up your devices
To configure your devices on the effect canvas, first click the Devices tab at the bottom of the page. This is where all of your connected devices will show up if they are supported by SignalRGB. To see a full list of supported devices, please visit our Supported Devices page.
To view the settings for a particular device, click on its picture. Each device has 4 options in the bottom right corner to adjust brightness, move the device's position on the lighting canvas, activate or deactivate the device, and to configure additional settings. Position each device on the canvas in a way that works for your setup and your preferences. You can do this by pressing the move button, which will open up the canvas view. The white box represents the devices and what it's currently capturing from the effect canvas. You can adjust the horizontal and vertical position, rotation, and scale. Its important to keep the white box inside of the boundaries. If you don’t configure this correctly then the lightscripts won’t function properly on your devices.
Certain devices, like fan and RGB strip controllers, require additional configuration. To configure these devices, click the config icon to open the additional settings and then click on the settings tab. Scroll down to where you can select what devices are connected to the device, and choose the appropriate ones. Next, go back to the devices view. Here you will see the devices you selected, allowing you to position the individual devices on the canvas.
3. Using Lightscripts
Now that your devices are all set up, you can being using lightscripts. There are hundreds of lightscripts in SignalRGB. We have over 70 free lightscripts as well, including Space, Fireworks, Rainstorm, and an audio effect that reacts to your music. If you subscribe to SignalRGB Pro and support our development, you will get access to our massive library of constantly upgraded game integrations and other advanced effects. To install a lightscript, simply hover over it on the Dashboard and press the install button. Then, you can apply it by clicking the checkmark.
Many of our lightscripts support customization options that allow you to tweak them further to your liking. To use these options, click the Effects tab on the bottom of the screen. Here you can adjust whichever properties you wish to customize the lightscript.
4. Using Game Integrations
SignalRGB Pro unlocks access to an ever-growing library of game integrations. To install a game integration, go back to the dashboard and follow the same procedure used to install static effects. Just like static effects, game integrations support customization too. Go back to the Effects tab to do so.
5. Using Screen Ambience
SignalRGB also has a screen ambience feature that mirrors content on your screen to your RGB devices. This effect is perfect for when you're watching movies or videos. To use it, go back to the effets list and select "Screen Ambience". Simply select it and it will start working automatically.
6. Using Audio Effects
One audio effect is included with SignalRGB. It is called "Audio Spectrum". To use it, search for it using the search bar on the dashboard and apply it. In the effects tab, it has many settings just like the other effects. These allow you customize color, position, intensity, and much more. This allows you to create audio-reactive light shows across your entire setup. If you'd like access to more audio effects, check out SignalRGB Pro.
