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 #4
0) on\off button
- a potentiometer (or digital encoder if needed) that when turned will control the color of the LEDS (one potentiometer though, not 3)
- push a button and turn on/off leds change brightness based off of sound (color of LEDS stays constant to that picked from #1)
- 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.
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.
