The Music Box RGB Controller allows you to sync lights to music or sound. This is a plug and play system that doesn't require a computer or complex software that needs to be programmed to operate. You just need an audio source, sound system / speakers and lights to have a great display.
The Music Box RGB controller is an RGB LED Controller based on our extremely popular Music Box (AC music to light controller). All the controller needs is a sound source (Christmas, Halloween, 4th of July music), 4-pin, 5050 LED Chip type light reels, 12-volt DC power and the display will sync the sound to the lighting. Plug and play! The Music Box RGB Controller will sync to sound or sync to music, it is a plug and play device that doesn't require a computer or software to operate that will synchronize Christmas lights to music. It's almost like Magic!
No two pieces of music will look the same, with some output channels turning on within some places in the music and others turning on with other parts of the sound selected. Outputs one and two turn on with the beat of the sound / music, while the remaining outputs trigger with other parts of the sound. The richer the music the better the effect.
There are 5 outputs for RGB LEDS lights. Each output will allow for three reels of RGB LED lights to be connected with splitter cables. That’s over 200 feet of RGB LED lights!
- One RGB Music Box Controller
- One 12-Volt, 5-amp power supply
- Five Reels of 5050 (LED Style), 4 pin, RGB lights
- One 3-way splitter pack
How Does It Work?
There are many ways to setup the Music Box RGB controller so that you can send audio from your sound source to both the Music Box RGB controller AND to a source output source so that you can hear the music. Here are some of the more common:
Using a "Y" audio splitter cable
Probably the most common setup. Simply purchase a Y audio cable like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Hosa-YMM-232-Dual-TRSF-Cable/dp/B000068O5G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1536757051&sr=8-3&keywords=1%2F8+stereo+y+adapter&dpID=41ohlTt9cSL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
Then run one side of the Y to the Music Box RGB controller using a standard 1/8" stereo audio cable and run the other side of the Y to your sound output device - be it a stereo, powered speaker, jam box, FM transmitter, etc.
Using a small audio mixer
Another common way to setup the Music Box RGB controller is to use a small audio mixer like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Behringer-802-Premium-8-Input-Preamps/dp/B000J5XS3C/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1536757243&sr=8-5&keywords=2+channel+mixer&dpID=61W%252B4lk8wqL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
Then run the line out from the mixer to the Music Box RGB controller and run your main audio outputs from the mixer to your speaker/sound device such as PA system, stereo, boom box, FM transmitter, etc.
Using an FM transmitter and multiple receivers
If you want to build a larger, synchronized display using the Music Box RGB controller. one way to achieve this is by using an FM transmitter that sends the audio over an open FM frequency out to small FM receivers that you connect to any number of Music Box RGB controllers. For example, if you use the audio mixer example above, you would run the line out from your audio source (phone, mp3 player, etc.) into the sound input jack on your FM transmitter.
Then simply attach a small FM receiver to each of your Music Box RGB controller inputs - and tune the receiver to the same FM frequency that you are using on your FM transmitter. Buy the MiZHi TT-028 digital AM -FM radio from Amazon. About $12. We have tested this unit and it is the only one that we have found will not DAMAGE the controller. In the box with the radio will come with all the correct cables you will to power the radio and connect to the Music Box RGB.
There is an added bonus with this setup. You can place several Music Box RGB Controllers in your display with all the radio’s set to the same frequency as the transmitter and the lights will sync up with the transmitted music.
