    I am a musician and I am trying to build a sound meter with a large LED readout. I will try
    not to be long winded on describing this one.

    I would like a simple LED about a foot long, tri color Red green blue. with the unit acting as a
    sound meter light as you would find on your stereo or a mixing console , only a larger version
    that would be easily seen across a large room.

    I have seen such a light at this website
    I don't know if this light completely lights or chases up from one end.

    I would like to have the light to have its own sound controler and power supply, batteries
    preferably but plug in would work.

    this unit could be callibrated to a sound meter or could have an integrated sound meter , working
    levels of the unit would be about 70 db to 105 db.

    TI am a musician in a small band without a dedicated sound tech and throughout the night as we
    are performing our volume may increase , I am thinking that the above unit would help us keep
    this in check and be able to monitor our sound level throughout the night, we usually do a sound
    check before the performance.

    If anyone has seen such a unit or know of a LED unit with the soundcontroler please let me know.

    I have seen a DJ with a LED unit complete with sound controler, I looked for a model number on it
    but all I could find was He bought it about 2 years ago and I cannot find
    the integrated unit on their website .

    If anyone is interested in taking a stab at building a unit such as this please let me know.

    Thanks for any help

    Also if there is a better newsgroup that this could be posted to that would be
    more applicable please let me know.

    (hey, they do send s.e.r. folk too!)

    Project a closeup image of the mixer's led meter onto a screen?
