Flic as a HID Device - The extra mini keyboard

HID stands for Human Interface Device and includes most standard devices such as computer keyboards, mice and gamepads. This means that you can configure your Flic Button to act as any of these devices and you will be able to connect it to anything that supports Bluetooth HID.

This includes Windows, mac OS and Linux computers as well as iOS and Android phones and tablets.

Flic as a MIDI Keyboard

MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface and is used in musical equipment such as music keyboards, foot switches, drum pads, etc

With Flic buttons as MIDI keyboards, you can create, compose, and control music in an entirely new way

  • Music Production: Trigger musical notes, chords, and samples in your favorite MIDI software.
  • Live Performances: Incorporate Flic buttons as tactile and responsive MIDI controllers.
  • Studio Efficiency: Speed up your music production process by assigning Flic buttons to commonly used functions and commands.

Create Sequences

To further extend the use of a Flic connected as a HID or MIDI device, it is also possible to execute key combinations, macros or sequences. For example, if you want to start an application on Windows, you press [Win + R] to open the “Run” dialogue and then type “https://google.se” to open up a browser with this address.
