So like the total noob that I can be sometimes, I'm completely spacing on how to pull this thing off with hardware. I want to say that I need a pair of 74ls595s, but I wanted to check first...
Here's what I'm working on: an 8x8 button matrix with LEDs in the button caps. Kinda Monome-like. push a button, and the coresponding LED lights up. push the button again and the light goes off.
The code isn't a problem. the scanning of the buttons isn't a problem (just a pair of 4051s there...). The LEDs are what's getting me... would I wire them up just like the buttons but with 595s (the anodes of column one going to 595 A output pin 1, the cathodes of row one going to 595 B output pin 1), or am I missing some other chip that I should have?
