@sticilface is the mqe7 code portable to that simple sketch of mine :D
probably not :D

naah to hard for me
nope :D

this lib seems the easiest i think

@marksev1 Look at this fine idea: Latino ch-lightmusic project Arduino is also can used there.

yeah this is too complex for me
i just want to strobe a led strip with music beats
:D

can some pro-coder take a look if this https://github.com/ruralguru/ERW_MSGEQ7/blob/master/examples/ERW_MSGEQ7_Mono_example/ERW_MSGEQ7_Mono_example.ino looks to be able to work on the esp8266

Could someone please help me how to use this library - https://github.com/ruralguru/ERW_MSGEQ7 ...just something to get me started. So I could pimp up that sketch of mine. In the next few days I'm gonna test that sketch of mine :D

@marksev1 Not even sure that will function on Esp8266 if you are using WiFi features. It is using the dreaded noInterrupts() and interrupts().

Oh. Dang

Also not sure why that project is using a IO expander for the NeoPixels, he just needed to string them all on one bus?
marksev1
@marksev1
Apr 15 2016 15:45
Yeah dunno
Then my only hope is if sticilface packs that feature from his code into a lib :-p
Like u know want that vumeter effect for parties :-P
Synced with music

Makuna what about this lib -https://github.com/NicoHood/MSGEQ7

@marksev1 nope, esp8266 only has one analog in, that requires at least one per frequency.

Oh noes ok i'll paste next one :)

@marksev1 you need to spend more time learning to code if you plan to do these sorts of projects. Do you know what the Arduino function analogRead() is or does? How it relates to my statement above about the other library?
marksev1
@marksev1
Apr 15 2016 16:12
Yes i know that esp has only one adc and that it would require 7 for that library
Since there are 7 frequencies
Michael Miller
@Makuna
Apr 15 2016 16:12
Did you look at the code for the latest link then? It also has this call?
marksev1
@marksev1
Apr 15 2016 16:13
But i would like to just display one frequency out of the seven
For example the lower bass one
For the beats
Does that mean i can use it?
And i would use just one msgeq7
Since if i'd use two there wouldnt be enough adcs

probably; but those libraries all assume reading all channels; so you need to understand it well enough to cut it up.

Apr 15 2016 16:17
There is one more lib but probably the same as othera
I will ask maybe the authors of libs

Makuna thanks for the tip. So no interrupts in these latest pasted libs
