Hey guys, it's me again.

So I'm trying to run synchronized_lights.py and it will play the mp3 but won't update the lights.

sudo python py/synchronized_lights.py --file /home/pi/Downloads/Soviet.mp3
and it is in that directory.

Thanks <3

Trying to clean things up a little. I was curious, is there a way to create aliases for the various commands? eg I want to make start_music_and_lights just start and the same for stopping the lights. Make that alias stop. Can this be done, if so how hard/easy is it to do. Can you shed a little light? Thanks again everyone.

Hey all,
I am trying to run this lightshowpi the hardware_controller.py file. However, whenever I run it, it shows up testing all the pins. but my LED strips don't flash.
(sudo python py/hardware_controller.py --state flash)

I know all of my pins are wired correctly because I can run them with another script that isn't part of lightshowpi. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Got lightshowpi installed and working, now I need config help

In this video https://youtu.be/oAf2q7XOfM8 we see the lights working well, but in this video https://youtu.be/y_znB_45Bl0 only three of the inside lights blink. So where do I start on the defaults.cfg file. Which setting first, attenuate percentage? Standard Deviation? Min Max Frequency? Which should be adjusted first??

Will adjusting something effect the other songs? Of course it will. How do I adjust for individual songs? Please be specific.

Told you I’d be back

Has anyone received this error when setting up the lightshowpi?

I've looked online for help and seem to be taken down different rabbit holes. Much appreciated...

Is it possible to have the program run the lights based on the frequencies of one song, but output through the speakers another song? I'm trying to have the lights coordinated with the instrumental version of a song but hear the song with lyrics?

When I run install.sh, I get the following:

I am running this on a Raspberry Pi 3B...
