As we have had our first heavy rains and cold days, I am finally getting to spend time in the shed working on my first sequence display (without feeling guilty) I have read so much and researched so much and have now settled on using vixen 3 have purchased a j1sys e1.31 controller and some dmx dumb controllers for now. I figure I should try and walk before I run and sequencing strips seems a little easier to start with. I have been having a good time trying to build stuff too. I found a good article on how to build north poles and have built 4 of them and they turned out pretty good for my first attempt. I bought a whole bunch of led strips and modules on special, so if anyone has any ideas on what else I could do with them, I would love to hear.
