    hi all,

    its my first time and visiting this website which i found from google. this is an amazing website, and everything seems so interesting.

    I am a student attending university, but for the past few years since i got my car, i always wanted to make something with led's to make them go with the beat of my music.

    I once bought a neon light that does that and couldnt find anymore, plus now in the summer, i want that to be my project.

    I took some engineering courses in high school, which sort of explains some knowledge of vocabulary i have such as leds, capacitors etc.

    Anyhow, im basically brand new, to start off with, so if u can help me out id love that.

    I want to create lights for the interior of my car, that basically will flash or blink with the beat of my music. I really am willing to dedicate my time to this and i really hope you guys can help me with this first post.

    thank you

    Hi There

    Heres one aimed at in-car use. This will do for one channel (left or right) So 2 would be required. I suggest in view of your newness you take some time to learn what the symbols mean. Up to a point you can just build from a schematic or a kit. It's when things don't work that a little more knowledge would be useful in preventing your project from becoming a white elephant.

    Checkout the links at the top of the page. Very useful stuff, but start at the beginning.

    Get a few simple circuits under your belt. It will make the likely hood of success with your 'major' project more likely and in the event of a failure you will have learned skills that will help fix a possible problem.
