So, I am very new to Arduino and have been sailing through the steps until now. I received serveral products sensors wires etc. yet, I have been stuck however on the Programming code.
A little background: I am building a costume for BlizzCon this year and it is a marauder. It will stand approx. 10 feet tall 6 feet wide and about 4 feet thick. This is a monster. I will be on mini stilts inside it and it will have Lights, Lasers, Speakers with voice, microphone, air powered grenade launcher etc. I have poured more than $5000 into this project and thus far this is the first time i've needed help. (Goes to show money cant be everything. lol) On top of these features I wanted the mouth to be a double stacked 20/20 - 20/20 led bar graph that will move to a noise sensor it has. I would like the sensors to move to scale like you might see on a boombox screen. I have received all the parts assembled it and quite frankly am confused with this coding.
So, I have attached the pic design of the project I am working on and all of the parts for the led bar graph... I have nearly built the entire thing and it looks awesome! Its made from fiberglass, bondo then vacuformed and painted. Just the final touches that makes the difference and I think Arduino is a key to the final touches.
I have the arduino R3, Grove Base shield, eight - 10 leds with wires as shown and a noise sensor with wire as shown.
The leds will be on numbers 2,3,4,5 and 8,9,10,11.
Then I had a question if the Grove base shield has a certain port the sensor has to plug into..?
I do hate to ask, but if anyone has the code or knows the code for this to work, and what to plug where, that would be awesome.
The best part is its all snap and play so there isn't much to the wiring part!

I think this would put my project over the top and any help would be so very much appreciated. Thank you
