Hello,

i just made a moving led sketch with my arduino board and a 74hc595 shift register.

the most annoying thing about startup web sites is that they repeat the same stuff over and over and over....enough

Never the less Komika,
Let others complain, it's great that you've got your moving lights working.
Sure, there's a lot more one can do with an arduino, but If you like electronics and already did this, the only way is forwards, in 12-24 months time people also might ask, "fgs... how the h*ll did you do that ?"

If you want to  dim each led individually, (which can be very... interesting using RGB-leds)  google shiftpwm.
By daisychaining 3 74hc595 chips and using 8 rgb-leds, you can create a moving light in  16+ million colours.

I made this to make an 8 step Step Sequencer:

Its just a little test for me, i will extend my sketch, maybe with a LCD Display to set up the notes and length.
