Help Requested: binding separate Chroma Studio profiles to individual keymaps on Tartarus Pro

  1. I bought a Razer Tartarus Pro (optical switches) and I created multiple keymap layers and chroma profiles via Synapse 3 to simplify my Adobe Illustrator shortcuts. My goal is to apply different colors to each of the 3 layers (Green, Yellow, and Purple) so I can easily recognize the keymap layer upon switching.

    Each of the 3 keymaps work fine and I'm able to confirm the switching works fine after each button press. However, the chroma lighting profiles do not change upon toggling between the 3 keymaps.

    I expected to see the Green, Yellow and Purple colors shift upon toggling each layered keymap.

    Here's a summary of what I've done:

    1) Created a dedicated profile for Adobe Ilustrator - "AI - Profile" to group all settings

    2) Within the dedicated Adobe Illustrator profile, I created 3 layered Keymaps bound to respective keyboard shortcuts

    3) Within each keymap selected, I go to "Lighting", then "Chroma Studio" to apply each individual keymap's lighting effects

    4) I created dedicated chroma profiles for each of the 3 Keymap layers (3 chroma profiles in total)
    • Chroma profile for Keymap Layer 1 - Green
    • Chroma profile for Keymap Layer 2 - Yellow
    • Chroma profile for Keymap Layer 3 - Purple

    Each of these chroma profiles are set to Green, Yellow, and Purple (respectively) via the "Static" effect. In addition I apply a White "Reactive" effect layer in each chroma profile so that a pressed key turns white.

    In addition to the 3 profiles, I created a 4th Chroma profile (Blue Static, White reactive) dedicated to the Hypershift sub layer under Keymap Layer 1.​

    After confirming the 4 chroma profiles work in Chroma studio panel, I test it in Illustrator and unfortunately, only one chroma profile seems to be active (the most recent chroma profile I worked on).

    It doesn't cycle through Green, Yellow and Purple profiles upon keymap switching. Also the hypershift layer doesn't apply its own chroma profile.

    Does synapse 3 support chroma profile per keymap and its Hypershift sub layer?
    Am I missing a step? Or is this is not supported yet on Synapse 3?

    I'm looking for the same answer. My Orbweaver Chroma is only supported by Synapse 2 (which is a big question mark on it's own) and it didnt offer specific lighting per keymap. So I bought a Tartarus v.2 thinking Synapse 3 would have this functionality.
