NLED Aurora Control Software

Most NLED Controllers are compatible with the NLED Aurora Control software. The software is used to create a multitude of patterns and sequences on a computer then, upload them to the compatible controller for the device to run by itself, without a computer connection. The simple GUI makes it easy for anyone to create custom color sequences of any sort and upload them to the controller over the USB connection. Great for any LED project that requires custom color sequences. In addition to standalone sequences, it also supports USB Live Control, send packets over USB to the device for direct control of the outputs. It supports single color, RGB, or RGBW LED configurations.

This software is available free of charge and only works with compatible NLED Controllers. If you are having trouble using the software with your device, please ensure your device's firmware has been updated. Check the device's webpage for the Firmware Update Image and apply it using the instructions at and, ensure you have the most recent version of NLED Aurora Control.
