My attempt a making a quick prototype sketch of a light organ using a speaker. LEDs and push buttons. After programing the buttons to correspond to the specific LEDs, I worked on having the LEDs fade in and out. Then I added different sounds, using the tone library.
I built a little cover for this out of cardboard and reflective shimmery plastic, so the lights could bounce off and create more of a glow. If I work on this further, I will try to space the LEDs out more so that they fill more of the space, rather than being in a single row.
I had a much easier time with the code this week. Being mastering the art of arrays, and they are so useful for this type of programming. Makes the whole project easier to scale and organize. I have also being trying to write more of my own functions, so that most of the code can live outside of the loop.
A note about the video: The sound is a little too soft, as I might have been covering the microphone. But I swear there is sound, you just have to listen closely.
