    Default Crazy Question: Sound activated software to drive Arduino, ESPixel, for dynamic show

    Ok, here is a crazy question. I had a DJ just approach me and ask if he were to do a live social media feed and tie into my light show which is normally sequenced via Vixen, could the lights be tied into the music mix dynamically? In other words, is there software that will dynamically do effects, or something from a live feed? It would have to be dynamic because he would be mixing there on the spot and I don't have time to sequence a 2 hour show in 2 days.

    If there is nothing out there, that is fine, but I wanted to ask just in case I am not asking Professor Google the right question.

    Search for "color organ". Here is one potential controller. https://learn.adafruit.com/trinket-s...ed-color-organ

    In essence, a color organ breaks the audio signal into multiple frequency bands then triggers light effects based on the volume of each band.

    I don't think any of the common and free christmas light sequencers have this functionality. But I believe LightJams and Madrix do.
