Some screenshots here of the arduino code and the programming software
I've seen the vixen lights software
before, but I don't think it works on a mac? Also, part the fun was to make my own sequencing software
. It's all HTML5 based and works in the browser. Each block is a draggable div, you can select many or some in one go, copy/paste, change colours, fade in, fade out etc. These are then split into tracks and saved to the database, then exported as function calls off a 50ms timer in the arduino code.
It's an Arduino Mega, simply due to the programming space required and the fact it has more available timers in the chip. Some are used by the MP3 player
, so it was important not to mix timers.
As for programming a whole house display... although I know I've the technical know-how... it's not something I'd want to do! 🤣
