A request for a simple lighting effect that may be complex to set up

Hello there, I recently just bought a Huntsman Elite and am very pleased with it so far! However I am migrating from a keyboard where I had a very particular lighting setup that I enjoyed very much and wish to replicate it near exactly here if at all possible. To be clear, I don't mind how much effort it takes me to replicate it even if I had to go down the route of using the SDK or related items to create it, I'm just looking to be pointed in the right direction.

Basically all I am after is having a base background static colour, and then having that colour change to a different one instantly on keypress, and reverting to how it was on key release. This effect looks identical to the one that happens when you press a hypershift key except it is per-key and only changes the colour of the key pressed. I am looking to replicate that exact same speed and type of colour change, in fact if you bind one of your hypershift shortcut keys as a hypershift activation key itself you get an even better idea of what I'm aiming for, just on an individual per-key basis.

In summary, I just want my held keys to light up differently and stay lit to show they're activated and to go back to the static colour as soon as they're not. I have so far tried the reactive lighting, but that is far too slow and it flashes on and off before coming to rest, I have also tried using a highly tuned ripple effect set to affect a single key at a time and this achieves near the colour speed change I want but does not stay lit for as long as I am depressing the key. I have not found a combination of effects that's able to be morphed into what I am after yet and I've so far turned up empty on any way to make it happen at all, so any assistance here would be sincerely appreciated.

I'd say its not possible at the moment to recreate this effect. We'd need something like a toggle effect to do this
