    x-keys matrix board question

    I want to get the x-keys matrix board US 59.90.
    I have fsuipc and widefs installed and i am building my new sim
    and i want the toggle swithes!

    will i have a repeat (keys been pressed down) with this board?
    can i use leds to identify if a switch is on like the "spd hold" on the mcp?

    If anyone has experience whith this board it would be great help!

    I am turning into x-keys instead hangstrom because of the half price!
    But i could be wrong....

    If I were you I would rethink this. X-Keys is a matrix board and wiring IMHO would be a real pain.

    Take a look at their manual to see how they show you to wire your inputs. Good luck.

    Now take a look at how a hagestrom is wired. The KE108 is awesome and very easy to wire. It also has 3 analogue inputs for pots and 2 rotary inputs. The software is extremely easy to work with and each switch gets wired to its own connection point. No diodes or resisters required either.

    You get what you pay for.
