Sound visualization using Arduino

After understanding the basics of sound visualization, we will move on to implement sound visualization using Arduino. Before we develop our LED Christmas tree, we will develop sound visualization on an LED matrix.

An LED matrix is a combination of 64 LEDs connected together as shown in the following circuit. As Arduino doesn't have 64 pins, we can't connect individual pins to control each LED. Instead, we will use the concept of multiplexing:

Sound visualization using Arduino

With the use of multiplexing, we can control any number of LEDs with Arduino. For controlling an 8 x 8 LED matrix, we need one multiplexer circuit. We can use the backpack from ...
