That's a hell of an accomplishment for being 24, Trent. This, along with your other posting, is really inspiring and a great read. And If your life has been like this so far, I can't imagine where you'll end up with all of your electronic and musical knowledge.

I wanted to share another awesome thing that happened last night. I got a last minute call to throw a surprise birthday party for JuJu. While it was going off, I asked him to listen to my most recent track for this very game. We were in his studio at the time checking out some of his new house music. There was a group of maybe 10 people hanging out on the couches lining the walls of the room, having a conversation of their own. We put on the new GoldenEye theme and chatted while it played in the background, but he suddenly lost focus of what he was saying and interjected "wow, this bassline is... fucking awesome." A girl from the couch yelled out "hey, I like this!"

I think I just recruited Juju.

Later in the night I ended up with a playboy bunny and my best friend in the car. What a night. I decided to be the most epic bro ever and wingmanned it for him. Took them to an exclusive, members only afterhours club on the house, drinks included. These are the kinds of powers I've gained by constantly giving and giving. People give back.

Come to think of it, I don't remember the last time I've ever paid for a drink. Anywhere.


I also added a final conclusion to the bio that I encourage everyone to read.



Edit: I actually added a whole new section covering my role as lead engineer of the Solar Decathlon. Can't believe I never talked about that.

Can someone sticky this? Idk how. From now on I'm going to use this topic for any random ramblings I feel like making public in the future. I also want to keep it up for questions and whatnot.

I'd think you'd be able to make things with with ease...

Hey, how much would it be for one of those LED doodad strips in the second video? Probably out of my price range, but I'm curious regardless.

A 5 meter reel of RGB LEDs typically costs around $40 if you get it from a Chinese wholesaler. They usually come with a control box and power supply too. I just like to make my own control boxes... because I can.

So I just brought another musician onto trial. He's a DJ/Producer at a club I work for. He's into minimal tek-house, so it'll be interesting to see how it turns out. He'll probably murder it and be our fourth official musician. We'll likely find out by our next media release... hehe.

Here's a recorded stream of the club with him DJing. Note that this club is rated #60 in the world (http://www.djmag.com/top100clubs/?op=detail&start=&page=6&year=2011&id=360)

But then you need an arduino, transistors, and some other things. I was trying to replicate the same thing in the 2nd video. It ended up being a $96 project including shipping. I just didn't know the whole put it together/soldering part  :-X

EDIT: Here's the link to the doc I made for all the materials. Trent, please correct me if I'm wrong with any of it. (This is from when we talked about it in steam months ago)

That list is spot on. How to use the arduino... well, I'll leave that up to you all to figure out, it's not hard :p

I understand the arduino pretty well. The code, loading it, and all that good stuff. Just the wiring, I'm clueless.

Perhaps I'll learn a bit about it and see what I can come up with. I have no experience in coding, or electrical endeavors, however. At any rate, I'm not going to get anywhere until I get a job.

all you need to know: use the PWM pins (of which there are 9) and FETs to switch from low to high voltage. You'll probably want to use Processing to send FFT information to the arduino to pulse the FETs.

Would using a would using a ULN2003 be more efficient than using 3 separate transistors like the one in this blog post:

That chip would fry as soon as you turned your light on. These strips pull a lot of current. That's only rated for 500mA. That's about 5 feet of RGB LED tape. For small scale, yeah that chip is awesome. I'll go ahead and buy some :)
