Serial port would be interesting because you can write to it which

Writing to leds on a HID device would be nice too, basically what I do
want is some visual feedback but I don't want to be staring at the
schreen while making music if it's not nesicary.

Maybe I'm the only one who wants to do something to the scroll-lock
