Topic: Controlling LED Strips
Is it possible to export information, such as bpm and cue points, to an arduino to control led strip lights?

edit: I understand almost nothing about arduino, so please put your answers in only slightly technical. However, any help will be appreciated

Don't know exactly what you want to do, but a while back I bought this small controller to get a sound to light effect.

You just connect the input with your master out signal and the output to your amp or whatever is next in you chain.

It has a frequency splitter for low and high frequencies.

This is what it looks like in action (not my video).

Or this one (my video):

EDIT:
It seems they are more common these days. So you could just buy something like this one:

ok, I dmx led light strips and then use the two way tape to wrap stuff with them.. the dmx led light controller only allows one strip and costs 21$ but there is a dmx for 4 light strips on ebay for 50$ usd.. there is 4 channels and they can be mapped really easy in freestyler through the fixture maker.. or even the 12 channel ... It is easy to set to led strip or tape
