I posted once before but I didn't get a reply, probably because the question was too vague.
I have made two projects so far using micro-controllers , albeit following a guide. The first was an animated LED strip that responded to music (used this guide http://www.instructables.com/id/Party-Lights-1/ )
The other was a Amazon Echo controlled RGB LED strip for my desk. For this I didn't use a Arduino but I'm sure there is an equivalent way of getting it to work with an Arduino Chip (again I used this guide https://www.hackster.io/pirumpi/voice-control-rgb-led-dd0ba5 ).
What I wanted to do was find a way to mix both the projects, and have an Amazon echo controlled LED strip that also responds to music. Something akin to the Phillips Hue.
I apologize if the answer is obvious, but I am fairly new to micro-controllers and Arduino in general.
Many Thanks, Dan
