    Hi everyone,

    The wait is finally over! The advanced configurator for the Razer BlackWidow Chroma is now available for MAC users via the latest Razer Synapse update

    The Razer Chroma configuartor unleashes the full potential of the Razer BlackWidow Chroma and allows you to :

    1- Define your own key zone
    Choose from a range of presets and game templates, or simply click and drag to define specific reactive zones on your BlackWidow Chroma.

    2- Customize your own light effect
    Decide the precise color, angle, speed, duration, split, and countless other functions to create your very own lighting effect.

    3- Add multi-layer effects
    Take your personalization options to the next level as you assign multiple lighting effects to individual keys for an impressive psychedelic display.

    With this update, MAC users will also have the new ripple lighting effect available.
    All existing chroma configurator effects that have been made by the community will also work on mac.

    Have fun!

    Am I missing something? I did the update and the only difference I see is the Ripple effect.

    I plan on picking one of these keyboards in july or august in order for synapse to update and get the glitches people say theyre getting out with this brand new configurator. anyway I am very curious.. has anyone found a way to re program the windows key to a command key so it is useful for mac?

    where can we download profiles like the heartbeat and stuff?
  9. I just downloaded it a few days ago. It works. It actually works. Great job, Razer.
  10. 1) Did you try selecting custom?
    2) Restart the computer. It wouldn't work for me either until I restarted my Mac.

    Does anyone know what is up with the function keys?? Sometimes when i plug in my chroma the function keys perform different tasks like sometimes the functions will be the original mac functions but the fn key dosent do a thing. And sometimes i get the razer layout of the function keys but i dont need to press fn to do any of the tasks. The thing im worried about is screen brightness, sometimes it will be f1 and f2 and sometimes it will work when its fn+ scr lk and fn+ pause break but right now there are no keys allowing me to adjust the brightness of my display.

    I wondered if anyone was having this too! I am and its bugging me! the only way i can see to fix it is to restart the computer but after a while it seems to go back to being the usual mac layout! We need help!

    The Chroma Configurator is not showing up at all on my MacBook Pro. This is on OS X 10.10.3 and a 2011 MacBook Pro. If I boot the system into Windows through my Boot Camp partition on the same system, the configurator works just fine.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled Synapse to no avail. See this image for the missing launcher:

    There is an update within Razer synapse. There should be a box with an exclamation mark in the bottom right. Click on that.
