Thanks so much for all the hard work on FastSPI_2!

Game changer baby!

Really awesome. Thanks for sharing!

I quickly hacked in support for multiple strings (the dress I’m working on has 7 strands). SerialCommand wasn’t working on my teensy 3 so I pulled it out and replaced it with a simpler ‘parser’

int getModeFromSerial() {
// if there’s any serial available, read it:
while (Serial.available() > 0) {
// look for the next valid integer in the incoming serial stream:
int iMode = Serial.parseInt();
Serial.print(“switching to:”);Serial.println(iMode);
return iMode;

and then in loop()
//------------------MAIN LOOP----------------
void loop() {

if (Serial.available())
    ledMode = getModeFromSerial();

@Zeke_Koch How are you setting up multiple strands? Wasn’t sure if I could use LEDS.addLeds… to add a strip on another pin. Any docs on doing this? Thanks!

Works like a charm. I’m using this:

void setup()

// For safety (to prevent too high of a power draw), the test case defaults to
// setting brightness to 25% brightness

LEDS.addLeds<WS2811,12, GRB>(leds[0], NUM_LEDS);
LEDS.addLeds<WS2811,9, GRB>(leds[1], NUM_LEDS);
LEDS.addLeds<WS2811,6, GRB>(leds[2], NUM_LEDS);
LEDS.addLeds<WS2811,3, GRB>(leds[3], NUM_LEDS);
LEDS.addLeds<WS2811,13, GRB>(leds[4], NUM_LEDS);
LEDS.addLeds<WS2811,16, GRB>(leds[5], NUM_LEDS);
LEDS.addLeds<WS2811,19, GRB>(leds[6], NUM_LEDS);

one_color_all(0,0,0); //-BLANK STRIP
