@Phil > Sorry, but I have to respectfully disagree. The lighting operation manual is very simple to follow and provides easy step-by-step instructions for every feature and function.
As for controlling the lighting with the pads, they're not "triggers" - but rather overrides. You can use either the PAD EDITOR (depending on the hardware) or the MIDI editor to change the assignment of one of your existing pad modes to control the lighting features per your desire. Personally, I never use the KEY SHIFT functions, so I've used that for my lighting pads.
