  • Using an LED Ring with Raveberry
    5 projects | | 28 Nov 2021
    In the first video, you can see how the LEDs light up to the beat of the music in realtime. In order to produce this effect, multiple steps are necessary. First, mopidy (the music player) duplicates the audio output into a fake pulseaudio sink. cava then captures the audio from this sink and transforms it, splitting it into its frequencies. Raveberry maps these frequencies to colors from red to blue and lights up the LED ring accordingly. Since the transformation takes a short amount of time, the audio output is delayed by approximately that time to sync the light flashes with the beat. All in all, this allows for a pretty neat sound-reactive spectrum visualization on the LED ring.
