Hello everyone! I would like to control an LED strip (This 12v one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01E4JP6AQ/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
by using the output of this microphone module: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00XT0PH10/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
By control I mean the voltage out of the microphone module to control the voltage in (brightness) of the single channel LED strip.
Because of my inexperience and lack of info on the page, I cannot tell if that mic module output has a DC bias, etc (hopefully you have an idea?).
So I have been researching, but again because of my lack of experience it is hard to tell what direction to go. I would like to do this WITHOUT an Arduino and with a circuit alone! I assume I should use a transistor, I was thinking a MOSFET but can't get it to work :/
So my real questions are: What kind of transistor/component should I use for these (mic and LED strip)? What other values of components may I need to get for it to work? (Resistors, Capacitors, diodes, amplifier?) Also if you had additional advice on what kind of potentiometer I should get to attenuate the voltage feeding into the LED strip so I can tweak the range?
I hope this makes sense and I really appreciate any help or guidance! Thank you
