  • I have a Bike Lights project that is quite similar using side glow and APA102 led strings. One thing you may find useful is to mask off the first couple of inches of fiber with black shrink wrap. That part of the fiber is usually much brighter than the rest. The contrast makes remaining fiber seem pretty dark. Also try lighting up the fiber from both ends. It makes a beautiful analog color gradient and you have only used 2 LEDs to get the effect. For audio effects check out this graphical equalizer chip https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10468. Run the outputs into some A/Ds and save a lot of processing power while still getting lights cued to the music. Cheers!
