I had good luck with the teensy and octoWS2811 board. According this page :https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/td_libs_OctoWS2811.html it does require a 3.x version teensy. You might also have a look at the ESP32 boards for wireless connectivity as well depending on how many leds you want to control.

Hi

firstly thanks for everything you've done.

I try to easily run just one 20LED strip with no octo board (only breadboard) with no luck.

I use MacOs 10.13.6 and Teensy 3.5, do I need to change an Arduino script somehow?

Fetching the bytes to serialConnector DAT seems not working..


Thanks in advance

This looks Awesome! Thanks for your hard work! I am having trouble getting your pixelcontroller to work with my setup. I am using a teensy 3.2 and OCTOWS2811 with ws2812b leds, single strip for now. Do I need to change anything for my setup to work?

Thanks!
