Project Help

by kcirtap52 on Sat Oct 17, 2020 6:35 pm

Hi, I am not super proficient with electronic projects, so I might be biting off more than I can chew. I am a model railroader trying to build a 1/87th scale concert scene. I would like to build something similar to this: https://www.eurorailhobbies.com/product ... k=NO-66823 I am looking at the Neopixel rings or Neopixel sticks for "concert lights". I want them to be driven by music, so I am also looking at a sound activated rgb controller https://www.aspectled.com/sound-activat ... rgb-lights

Can I do this with the Neopixel rings or sticks?

I was not sure which forum to ask this question.

Thanks for any help.

Patrick

That particular controller looks like it is designed to work with analog strips. For Neopixels, you might want to use this guide as a starting point: https://learn.adafruit.com/sound-reacti ... ce-pendant

Thanks for the help. As mentioned, I am not very "in the know" about electronics and LED technology. So, after reading your reply, I found this: https://www.walmart.com/ip/WS2812B-LED- ... /212110708

It says it works with "Individually Addressable Digital Programmable LED Strip" Would this work with the Neo pixels?

Thanks again

Patrick

Yes. That should work with neopixels.
