Alright, so I am starting a new project that will eventually get installed in my car. What I hope to have once it is all done;
an arduino that controls a 5050 analog RGB led strip with the following options;
THE FOLLOWING HAS CHANGED, SEE POST #40) on\off button
1) a potentiometer (or digital encoder if needed) that when turned will control the color of the LEDS (one potentiometer though, not 3)
2) push a button and turn on/off leds change brightness based off of sound (color of LEDS stays constant to that picked from #1)
3) push a button and turn on/off leds change brightness AND COLOR based off of sound
I know next to nothing when it comes to arduino programming so this should be interested and I will really be relying on you guys a lot. I so far have my LED strip setup based off of this tutorial and have gotten the example code to work perfectly to fade the colors. http://learn.adafruit.com/rgb-led-strips/usage
So now my next question is, how can i use a single potentiometer to pick the color of the LED strip, I have seen it done using 3 one for each color but I would love to do it with just one.
I will do this step by step and then I assume, combine all those steps into one final sketch that will execute what I laid out above. Any help is greatly appreciated guys.
