Christmas Music Light Shows

The flickerSong plays a music light show with LED string lights by changing the brightness in artistic synchrony to the music.

Each unit powers eight - 110V outlets for the string lights, from precise fades to strobe-like effects for fantastic holiday and party light shows. Plug and play expandable to as many flickerSongs as you want.

The flickerSong connects with WiFi to the iPhone or Macintosh using free ScottEffx apps

It is also a powerful dimmer controller and timer, 10 events per day scheduled to 'play' a particular dim setting or sequence, timed on a 24 hour clock with NIST precision

Halloween Music Light Show

The flickerSong light show is controlled by a MIDI stream as you program it using a Digital Audio Workshop such as Logic Pro, Ableton Live, or Pro Tools.

Each flickerSong outlet ‘plays’ a light show effect
such as a fade on/off, attack, short burst or ANY brightness effect with 210 samples per second precision in response to each MIDI note. A Note/Channel MIDI map defines what effect is played.

Free ScottEffx Macintosh app lets you simulate your light show from a photograph of your desired scene, which you ‘decorate’ with
LED string lights using Photoshop or GIMP.

A completed light show is then bundled or ‘bounced’ using our free app to an mp3 music file with the light show configuration and MIDI file saved in the ID3v2 tag

Fantastic MIDI Music Light Shows!

Yes. flickerSong comes with built-in dimmer and timer functions with NIST timebase accuracy so you can turn your lights on and off to pre-determined dim states with 10 timer events per day. And as a bonus, any of those events can be a (no-music) light show sequence played at the time(s) you program.
