- 05/23/2018 : Adding Autostandby Mode to turn on/off lights automaticly (based on volume level)
- 05/21/2018 : Adding Random Mode on pattern/Vu sequence.
- 04/2018 : Adding more Aux1 patterns
An evolved LED Mod for your sound machine based on Arduino.
- Arduino Uno based
- Addressable Led strips (Left/Right channels & a custom static one)
- Stereo sound responsive from lineout
- Works on any sources
- A switch allow to turn lights on/off and change pattern.
- Customisable effects
- Manual, Autochange, Random patterns
- Can Manage : 2 "Stereo" Led Strips et 2 additionals Strips (Aux1 for a pattern, Aux2 for the "mode" color)
What's it look like?

Every boombox equiped with a lineout can be upgraded. The challenge is about led integration. (speakers/grid shape) but they can be placed everywhere (radio scale, tape...)
- Some little ground noise due to the Switched-mode power supply (Filtering needed)
How to customize the code
- You need to set the number of LED on each LED strip.
- Depending your coding skills, you can change colors on some templates. (firsts VU for exemple)
- You need to install FastLed library and use Arduino 1.65 software to prevent crashs.
- to be continued...
How to use it
By default, all lights are turned off. A short press on button allows to:
- Turn on the lights in Auto Standby Mode
- Switch Pattern selection from Auto Change to Random Change and finally to Manual mode by selecting the next pattern.
A long press on button allows to:
- Turn on the lights in Always On Mode
- Turn off the lights
What i need to make it ?
I recommend to use WS2812 strip led with 100 Leds / Meter because of the black PCB/Led (check pics) (1M 100 IP30) https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/1m-4m-5m-WS2812B-Smart-led-pixel-strip-Black-White-PCB-30-60-144-leds-m/2036819167.html
Depending your setup, you may need a dedicated power supply (5V 6A) https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/LED-AC110V-220V-TO-DC-12V-24V-5V-1A-2A-5A-8A-10A-15A-20A-30A/32822508171.html
Do your own Shield or use an Arduino prototyping board : https://www.ebay.com/itm/263092669047
Some components (see Schematics folder)
Help needed !
- Most templates have been created for a linear system. If some have a correct visual rendering, others would need to be adapted to the round shape. (-fire- for exemple) Anyone can propose modified or original templates.
- Regarding electronics, I need tips on filtering to remove power supply and LED noise.
- Looking for a way to turn off light when a silence is detected during a predefined time. (a kind of autostop)
