Ledcorg8Francisco writes – “Amazing electronic DIY projects and absolutely incredible craftmanship. The Peasant is dedicated to inexpensive, easy, and fun Do-It-Yourself electronics projects, particularly those which involve music production and reproduction as well as alternative energy. The color organ stars shown are built point to point, using a technique that I had never seen before. A MUST to check out if you’ve ever soldered anything!” Link.

    It looks like a good way to go if you *REALLY* like to solder… I think a much easier way to go is to use one of the LM391{4,5,6} bar graph driver ICs to drive each leg. They run about $5 each at your local surplus electronics store. You just feed an analog signal in and get 10 LED outputs.

    Looking on the Nat-Semi site( they also have the LP3943 and LP3944 which are I2C LED controllers with independent timers for each LED.
