    Hi Ross,
    Your question might be better placed in the RGB section.
    If you have RGB pixels but no controller you could maybe use a pixel tester to control them as a temporary measure? Hanson Electronics sell them for $5.50, so it’s a cheap alternative, you come also power the pixel tester with one channel of your DC RGB controller.
