1. Connect your LUMI Keys

Turn on your LUMI Keys and connect it to your computer using the supplied USB-C to USB-A cable. Or, if you're using a Mac, connect via Bluetooth.


The visualizer shows your LUMI Keys and any other BLOCKS that are connected. The keys and buttons in the visualizer will light up in accordance to your physical touches.

The LUMI Music app automatically updates the firmware on your LUMI Keys. If you need to update via Dashboard, follow these steps.

Click on the LUMI Keys visualizer to highlight it. Hover your mouse over the visualizer to see its firmware version and other information, click "Updates" to check for firmware updates.
