Hey Gang,

I’m trying to use the FastLED library to drive some leds connected to an Arduino MKR WiFi 1010.

However I’m getting some errors when compiling my code, an “Invalid pin specified” message thrown from the FastPin.h file.

When I set the board to a different one, such as the MKR 1000 I can compile fastLED with no issues and even drive a 300 led strip with no issues, so I’m guessing it is a platform support issue. I’d just leave the board setting be, but then I get compiler issues with my WiFi library.

I’ve looked into porting in MKR 1010 support but I can’t find any solid guidance on that and I’m in a bit over my head as it is.

Would I be better off getting another micro controller that is already supported by FastLED? Or can I get around this bug somehow?

Thanks in advance for the help!
