    Hi guys, :)
    I am working on an Audio Spectrum Analyzer based on leds,
    and i just cant think of something effective to add for it.

    I mean, I will make the graphic change the display style (rising dots, bars..)
    with a "number board" attached.
    But I have no other cool ideas that i can add to the Project.

    Can you give me an advice about some effective/cool stuff I can add?

    Thanks a buch,
    Erez. :)

    Form follows function. If it's doing what you want, I suggest working on making it as small, clean, sturdy, beautiful, as possible.

    On a Cadsoft Site there is a Projects section and free downloads. If you have to download Eagle freeware latest version and open project folder. Download a Audio Logic
    Analizer project found in project area. Un zip with 7 zip after you place it on your desktop.
    Then drag and drop into open folder. View entire project includeing extensive PDF. Only frality One transistor number was missing. Complimentary pair number works. Beautiful project thou. Enjoy

    I though about adding speakers,
    and controlling thier output frequencies with digital resistors so the "Analyzer" will respond identically and this will make the leds display more prettier and functional..

    This method seems too complicated with a microcontroller,
    someone knows a better and a more simple idea achieving such a goal?

    Help will be much appriciated! :)
