Change Color of Cloned Spotlights

Hello all, i created a spotlight and cloned it so now i have 6 lights, no problem, i want each light to have a specific color so i headed for the "Randon" Effector and turned color mode on.. However the issue is the colors are random alright but i cant change each color to what i really want. Is there a way to do this without accepting the random colors?

You can put a material on the cloned light with a Mograph Multishader in the Transparency channel - set the Multishader to Index Ratio and use as many colours in there as you have lights

It would be possible with xpresso using the clone index or possibly plain effectors with clone selections but with only 6 lights it might be easier to just have 6 lights... Is there a reason you want them to be clones

will all the lights be targeting the logo? (centered on it?)
