Question about Riing Fans and RGB control

I just love the look of the RGB Riing fans, they look simply great! Especially the newest "Plus" series! (although i'm abit mad that they released those shortly after the premium series. And me #### bought a pack of the premium ones back in november D:...)

However, as cool as they are, i have a big issues with their RGB control policy. I would LOVE to be able to control Riing fans, RGB LED fittings, RGB lit hardware and various other RGB lights through ONE software or controller. Why must it be SO hard?! I really wish for RGB control standarts and cross compability!

I hate to rely on 4 different softwares and even hardware controlls to light up all the RGB... not even mentioning the synching of the lights.... nightmares!

For example i want to control the Riing fans (premium) with AURA software from ASUS, because i got the 1080 ti Poseidon which has a BRG+ header. I know certainly that i can't just plug in a makeshift splitter from the header to the fans, because the header (and the entire AURA software) works with the simple analog RGB signals while the Riing premium work with digital control (data in and data out).

The thing about Aura is tho, i can hook up any simple LED stripe or light to it without many ristrictions (exceppt that it's 12V) while with the Tt RGB stuff i can't even make the fittings and the Riing fans work together in synch, which is just sad and frustrating. Also alot of manufacturers joined this Aura movement, sadly none of which who makes Riing like 140mm LED fans or RGB fittings :(

I don't know if there is a converter that turns RGB signals into whatever the Riing fans or digital RGB LEDs need to turn on the proper lights... maybe there is? I just don't know what to look for.

I've stumbled across a "DMX Module" that seems to convert data+ and data- into RGBW signal, but from what i understand it's for music purposes? And it's also the other way around as i need it.

However, since the Riing fans are controlled digitally, can't Tt make a controller that has a BRG+ input that accepts RGB signal from eg. Aura and convert it into it's own signal for the fans to light up in the desired colors without using the riing software (could also implement a 4-pin PWM input for fan controlls via mainboard)? Would it be so hard or what's the deal with all this proprietary controlls that work half the time and cause more frustration than joy for every RGB enthusiast? And i know it's not just Tt, there's also Corsair (Link), NZXT (Hue+) and some other that don't want to share compability. I get that digitally controlled RGB is much fancier than analog RGB, i agree with that, but even the prettiest RGB effects look bad if they're out of sync with the rest of the RGB stuff.

Please Thermaltake, release a controller that makes your RGB Riing plus fans compatible with Asus Aura (by adding a BRG+ and a 4-pin PWM input to the controller)... PLEASE, I BEG YOU.
