OpenRGB is a free and open source RGB lighting control software for Linux and Windows. With this tool, you gain the ability to manage all supported RGB devices seamlessly through a single application. This includes the capacity to define colors, select various effect modes, and save configurations as profiles for future use. Notably, OpenRGB also provides command-line support for enhanced flexibility.
A key feature of OpenRGB is its capability to connect multiple instances, allowing for the synchronization of lighting effects across multiple PCs. This functionality proves particularly valuable for users seeking uniform lighting experiences across different systems.
