    The format they came up with was definitely influential. Some of those changes were definitely "in the air" for many builders and it was matter of time because things like large LCD screens became a lot cheaper lately.

    If you want to see where this entire design trend comes from google "art lebedev keyboard".

    If you want to track the cheap availability of color changing LEDs and their implementation in MI tech, Novation launchpad is the product to history-trace.

    I designed a communications product with a multi-color LED back in '94/'95, so, no - they've been around for a very long time. I think that they were on some high-end recording consoles back as far as the '80s, but I could be mis-remembering.

    Let's see the graphic on who "invented" scenes/snapshots. I'm colorblind anyway.

    Those were even in the early Roland VS880 HD multitrackers.
