What is LedFx?
----------------

What LedFx offers is the ability to take audio input, and instantaneously processes the audio into realtime light show to multiple LED strips/matrix.
No need to spend hours on end to program one song to program your LEDs, as LedFx will do this all for you!

LedFx real-time LED strip music visualization effect controller using is a network based devices (ESP8266/ESP32/Raspberry Pi 4) with support for advanced real-time audio effects! LedFx can control multiple devices and works great with cheap ESP8266/ESP32 nodes allowing for cost effective synchronized effects across your entire house!

Demos
-------

We are actively adding and perfecting the effects, but here is a quick demo of LedFx running three different effects synced across three different ESP8266 devices:

- Flash WLED to the ESP device: https://github.com/Aircoookie/WLED/wiki/Install-WLED-binary
- Ensure all WLED devices are powered on, and connected to your Wi-Fi.
- Test you can access the WLED web interface from your PC. If so, then you're good to go!

#. **Install LedFx.**
- After you have WLED installed on your ESP device, download: `LedFx.exe`_ and install LedFx.
- For Mac and Linux, see the `installation documentation`_ or `LedFx Guide`_.

#. **Direct computer audio output to LedFx.**
