    Great video and great first up light display.

    I am sure when you look at other animated light sequences that don't impress, you can say my 12 year old can do better and you have proof lol.

    So I've got about 7 years until I can get my 5yo to take over the sequencing...

    Great effort, especially considering how late in the year you started with it all!

    Should be pretty pleased with your 1st year and quite proud of the sons effort. It's better synched than what I'm doing about 5yrs down the track.

    @kane my 5.5 year old has done 3 songs as well, lucky vixen is easy, and I only have 8 objects

    I'm amazed at how they can do it by themselves

    Next year will be harder when I get more stuff and RGBs

    Great first up display, im sure you now really have the CLAP and it looks like your spreading it to your kids. I could only fream of my 10 year old having the patience to do sequencing. Looks like you have the right plan, teach them when its simple and then next year ramp it up on them

    For the first year that is very good.
    Wish I had a 12 year old for sequencing. Especially one that does such a great job.

    Thanks all

    @Mike The song is by DJ Lycan - Christmas Techno

    As much as the kids enjoy programming and watching it, the wife is very proud of her songs that she sequenced. I'm lucky I guess that they are interested and have the patience to do it.

    Recorded the whole show (37minutes) last night just for us to keep to compare against next year.

    Look forward to increasing the LED count and learning about RGBs for next year.
