    Default wS 2811 through hole pixels for beat-track play back

    I wanted to have a simple-easy playback method rather than a the display preview on the computer .

    These through-hole pixels combined with an Esp module provided that ahh so simple method .

    I do much the same thing, although my display board uses five Renzillas for a total of 480 monitored channels...

    Well I have hit another Ws 28** debbie downer .

    I can power 100 sk 6812 from the usb on the PC and individually chat with each and without issue .

    After connecting up a mere 5 of these through hole Ws 2811 , I have hit the limit .
    Adding a 6th produces a white pixel that will not chat .
    In summary these Ws pixels are power goblins and produce a buzzkill to being a simple multi beat-track solution .

    On another note , this forces my hand at connecting multiple strings of sk 6812 to a single data source and prove or disprove its reliability .
    The way these Sk are designed/assembled , makes easy work for them to be through hole as well .

    Some times you need to kick yourself ! . This was a boob error on my part in just assuming things to be a given .

    Of course I checked the pixel count setting in the EspixelStick GUI first .....................right .

    Why are the answers always in the last place you look ?

    If you think about it, even if you find it in the first place you look, it is also in the last place you look.
    At least you are looking!

    It appears that Camtasia is unable to capture 25 msec effects . I tried every setting to no avail .
    So I captured with my phone and synced re synced to audio .

    . Any suggestions on a screen capture that will work ?
