    Thanks.
    Unless some one writes a plugin we're out of look outside of WMP & iTunes. We have 2 M18x's. Only difference is one has a 2920XM and the other has a 2960XM. Maybe I'll make a AlienFX video in HD with both M18x's playing the same song. :)

    What about morphing? Would it be possible to do that without too much effort?

    AlienFX does have an advanced set of features that includes morphing. It just doesn't do it very well. We are lucky that Dell/compaq took the time to include the AlienFX plugin for the M18x, M14x & R3.

    I couldn't find said feature. How do I set it up? Also what should the music setting thing be set to. The one that deals with Hz ranges or w/e

    What you're looking for is the Optimus Maximus keyboard. Each of the 113 keys is its own little screen. The letters change when you press shift or turn on caps lock, and when you enter a program like say, Photoshop, it can be set to make each key show the shortcut that that key performs. If only it was cheaper or I was a millionaire...I wonder if anybody would actually be stupid enough to spend $1800 on a keyboard...

    is the fx timing on the itunes same as the one in wmp? wmp is already awesome but if there is some distinction between the two in terms of musical timing then i might give itunes a try also.

    I feel like there is a difference but I'm not 100% sure. In iTunes, it seemed laggy so I switched to wmp, but it still seemed laggy (but it felt less laggy) so I'm not sure. I think it just seemed laggy because I listen to mostly dubstep/ electronic and it doesn't change colors for a lot of the sounds.
