Here is the very humble start of 2012's light show. I have a few more songs to sequence for this year and then plan on some more subtle haunt ambient music with eerie lighting.
This year I have a better grasp on Arduino and Vixen and hope to put out a tutorial on how to put this kind of setup together. It's basically like having Light O' Rama, but on the cheap, as in a few hundred dollars as opposed to a few thousand. I think I will have the ability to have 44 separate channels of different banks of lights this year with only the added cost of low voltage landscaping wire. ( last year I used speaker wire which is a pain to hide). The entire setup uses free software, bulk LED's, wire, and a wall wort or two (in addition to my homemade props and a fogger). A lot of patience, hot glue, PVC, blood sweat, and tears were also required. :tonguevil:
