popinns.
Yes you can add LEDs to the ABXY buttons. With the voltage supplied though you will have to find low foward voltage LEDs and use them. Blue will be the toughest for you to find. I have used blue 0603 surface mount LED's. The easiest way is to use all white. If you use all 4 colors you will need a separate resistor for each LED with a different forward foltage. I have added a coin cell 3v battery and resisted down from the 6v in a few I have done but thats fully optional. If you know how to resist leds properly you will have no problem at all. An easy way is to get the 4 leds first and try hooking them up to 2 AA batteries. If only certain ones light up you know you will need to resist them ones down. If you need any extra help let me know and I will try an give you a hand. I have done more than a couple of these.
