Make Lights react to Audio - do it yourself

The goal of this project is to make an LED matrix, which can react to sound, not only by detecting the amplitude, but also by controlling animations based on the frequency spectrum and beats of an song.

Some of the finished animations are straight forward and you can see a connection between the audio and visual like the audio spectrum monitor in the video. Other animations are more ambiguous where for example on each beat some LED light up and/or move and change their color. The presented system gives you a lot of freedom in what should happen.

For this an audio signal is pre-processed by a filter and then processed by a micro-controller. The controller calculates the intensity of the frequency spectrum with the Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) and performs a simple beat detection. This data gives us insight about the amplitude and frequency spectrum of the audio signal and the beats of the song. Since a controller does the calculations this project is self-sufficient and independent from e.g. a PC.

I'll explain in the following steps the theory and thought process behind this project.
