    Sound Reactive Equalizer Skirt

    My 13 year old daughter (Artist and guitarist... and budding electronics geek), and I put this together over a couple weeks. She first made a test strip of 3 LEDs and it worked like a charm. Excellent instructions! Then she placed all the eyelets, hot glued the "lenses" and then soldered the other 17 LEDs onto the strip. We used shrink tubing for that 'pro' look and sacrificed a bunch of prototyping patch cables for the connectors. Lina, this is a great project, many thanks for posting your excellent instructions!I'll have to dig further into the code... is there a simple code mod to reverse the color scheme, so the more yellow/red colors are at the high end of the scale?

Worked perfectly the first time. Lina, thanks for the excellent instructions for this project!Any thoughts on a simple code mode to reverse the color scheme of the LEDs, so the bluish colors are at the bottom? I'll have to dig into the code, probably pretty straight forward.
