Hey there,
Sorry if this has already been asked - I didn't find it anywhere - but what is the meaning of the different vocabulary in the colour section of the Emerald sabers? What is the difference between RGBW and RGBA? Which is better - 4-channel or 2-channel?
Thanks.

RGBA = Red, green, blue, amber (creates yellow/golded hues)
RGBW= Red, green, blue, white (makes purer colors, bright silver/white)

4 channel means all 4 channels are connected, every color imaginable is possible
2 channel means red/green. red/blue, green/white, etc. are what is connected, so colors within those combinations are what's possible.

does this help?

If anyone wants to give more information, or correct me if I'm mistaken, please do so.

Points for both of you as I have had this question also, as some of the vocab is quite confusing. And because this is a great answer and helps greatly!

It's not a problem at all! The Emerald Enclave is a very new section and I just thought that with its creation, this would be a great topic to have there Smiley That way, others with questions about Emerald can come to a central location and find these answers as well!

If someone wasn't sure if it was a 2-channel or 4-channel how would you be able to tell?

Best way is to download the software and plug it up.

This is quite an old thread.  US does not sell 2-channel Emerald anymore for a few years.  I have heard that lately this driver can still be found on some of the raffle winning sabers.  As Inf01 has said... connect to the computer program and see what comes up for options.  Smiley

The raffle prizes that are 2 channel Emerald have the 4 channel Emerald diver. They just come with two colors programed when it is sent out. I know because I won one in a previous raffle. Just hook it up to the computer and you can use all 4 channels.

So the 2 channel and be set to use 4 once you connect it and change the settings? Good to know.

Wow... a 4 year old post resurfacing...
Has it really been that long since I first arrived here?  ... Man, I'm old...
