Audio Spectrum Analyzer - first impressions

Postby Florin » Sat 03 Jan , 2009 9:38 pm

I really think this project came out great, even better than I expected. I would like to thank Morgoth who helped allot on making this project(he wrote the code for the ATmega) and I hope we can work again on future projects.

But let's hear what you think about the Audio Spectrum Analyzer, do you like it ?

Hi Florin

You have created a fantastic product with the spectrum analyzer and full credit goes to you for it. I'm not sure if you have already had the request but i'm in the process of building a spectrum analyzer for the front of a DJ box that will go for hire as i'm in the process of starting up a very small events company.

The DJ box will be similar to http://www.djdeckstands.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=69_97&products_id=306 and will have around 20 tubes along the front http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbSGes-xvCk or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H36x9a5ZSZs. The tubes i am looking at purchasing are the JB Systems LED Pipe http://www.terralec.co.uk/led_display_products_/ledpipe_rgb_bar/24708_p.htmlas they have a built in power supply once daisy chained and a built in VU meter, although i'm led to believe this mode will only fire down the length of the one tube, continuing to the next when that tube is full of light. The optional controller does state different modes for the meter but i'm suspecting i wouldn't get the desired result from it http://www.terralec.co.uk/led_display_products_/controller_for_ledpipe_rgb/24709_p.html. I'm not sure if the controller will carry out the function i want but i was just wondering if it wasn't able to carry out the function with the controller, how could the analyzer you created be adapted?

What i'd like is for each channel to be independant like your analyzer. I know that the LED Pipe units respond to DMX signals so how could your analyzer be adapted to have twenty XLR sockets outputting to each tube just like your analyzer? I have found many people who have managed to get this effect from MADRIX to control the tubes but that is far too expensive for what i need and also involves a laptop.

The LED Pipes have 144 LED's inside meaning a better resolution from the display (48 red, 48 green, 48 blue) and they are all colour switched via DMX values.

Sorry if it's a little off-topic but you have created the best specrtum analyzer i have saw yet that meets my needs. Just for the record the original goal was to re-create this but it costs just under £3000 for the LED system alone! http://www.disco-designer.com/CEILING_AND_PIXEL_DANCEFLOOR_PANEL.html and here http://www.disco-designer.com/Equalizer_panel_video.html.

Hi Chris,
Sorry for my late response, I haven't checked the forum in a while because I thought it will email me when something new gets posted but it didn't.
The motherboard from the spectrum analyzer I designed can control a number of 20 channels but it wasn't designed to control the color of the channels so it can't do that.

If you're interested I can design a custom control box for your specific lights, The price will be higher than a standard spectrum analyzer that I sell, but it will be lower than what you can find in shops.

Just send me an email at this address http://www.youritronics.com/contact/ and we can discuss this further.

Florin, What an amazing Analyzer. I love it, and it works perfect every time. Once I turn it on, which is every day, I can't seem to turn it off, because I keep watching it. It's so cool. Thanks for designing it. I hope that everyone else that has one is enjoying it as much as I am....

Thank's Mike....USA....

Florin,

Today I received the motherboard you sent me for your spectrum analyzer. If you remember, I'm the one who fried the first one I got. :(

Hooked it all up, and it all works fine.

Looks great. Thanks.
