Hey everyone,

I’m thinking about getting into the game next year, have seen lots of posts around RGB pixel strings - can you get RGBWA? I’m keen to include some warm white in my display which is difficult with just RGB.
Thanks for any suggestions

It's certainly possible to approximate warm white with RGB. Not perfect, but close enough. I am not in front of my PC with xLights on it, but I use it in some sequences. You want to get to a yellow-ish light by starting on full 100% white, bring down green and blue roughly double. So if you take green to 90, blue goes to 80. But you can't bring either color too far from the red, or you'll end up with... well, red. I think that is how I did mine anyway. And then the trick is to keep the R-G-B sliders in the same relative position and bring the overall brightness WAY down.
