Help for making an Arduino powered Nixie Bar music visualizer Answered

Hello everyone!

I would like to make a nixie bargraph music visualizer which is controlled using an arduino.

The problem is i can find guides on making one without the arduino, or with the arduino but without the nixie bars.
How do i combine these two together and what about the code? 

Are there some kind people on this forum who will assist me accomplish this goal? :)

What you should do is to build two separate devices first to understand what you need to do. Build an arduino bargraph music visualizer( Adafruit ampli-tie project) that lights up LEDs and build a nixie tube visualizer. If you understand how the LEDs are being lit up, that same signal can be used to light up a segment of the Nixie bar. The hacking is to probably change the code so that it can activate a relay or turn on the switch for the high voltage Nixie segement. Good luck.
