    Hello !
    I have been meaning to join this forum for over a year, we bought a new house start of 2017 and wanted to use Pixel LED's for the 2017 Christmas lights.
    A busy year passed by and I didn't get around to it.

    So just before NYE I ordered a SanDevices E682 Kit, and
    One string of;
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/BLA...32743468281.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.8eyVWH
    And a string of;
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/5m-.../1142314497.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.8eyVWH
    And a 12V power supply.
    Just to see if it is something I can do.

    The E682 Kit arrived yesterday, and I got it all soldered together and working last night, and hooked up with Vixen3.

    My plan is to start small, with one or two trees (Is Megatree the correct term? I'm thinking only as tall as me). A couple of leaping arches (That is what I bought the led strip for) and if I have time I'll use some of the C9 Technicolor LED's on the house eaves.

    I'm hoping to learn a lot about sequencing this year, I'm Ok with technology, I'm just not very good at being creative.

    Cheers,
    Michael

    Welcome Michael!

    Great to see another Coasty here. As Ben said, the mini will be a fantastic asset for this coming season.
