I'm creating an "alpha rod" for a music festival, basically a large stick that my friends can see from afar and know where we are so we don't lose each other. I want to program an LED light strip for it.
What I currently plan on using:
-arduino micro with headers http://www.adafruit.com/products/1086
-Adafruit addressable RGB strip, LPD8806 http://www.adafruit.com/products/306
-A battery pack, to be planned
It's not necessary, but I would love to program it to act similarly to these LED shirts that pulsate to music,
I've found a lot of tutorials for programming the lights to pulse to music that is directly connected to the audio source, but nothing that helps with programming it with external sound sources. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on where to start!
