default- color wheel continuous

F1- allows the color mixing wheels to make two complete rotations

F2- locks dim, color, and effect systems to MSpeed

F3- enables forward color spins on the fixed color wheel or synchronized color mix sequences

F4- enables reverse color spins on the fixed color wheel or random color mix cycling from the subtractive color wheels

F5- color wheel color lock and quickest path
