I found a box of blue LED icicle lights on sale at Wal Mart and I decided to buy it just to play around with them since I've been experimenting with LEDs. I am animated with Lights and Sounds of Christmas, and I plugged the icicles into the end of one of the strands of lights I have in a bush. They flashed like all the other lights, but would turn on very dim and would get brighter as that channel was on longer.
I decided to turn the animation onto steady mode so that all the lights were on static mode, but the music was still playing. All other lights stayed solid, but the LED's brightness changed almost with the beat of the music!
I turned the animation back onto multiplex where the lights flash with the music, and plugged the LEDs into the cord that supplies power to my reindeer, which is not hooked up to the controller. The brightness still changed almost with the music, but the reindeer's brightness also changes with how many channels are lit.
Does anyone have any ideas as to why that is? The LEDs were very bright when I plugged them into a wall outlet in th kitchen.
Let me know if my story doesn't make sense.
