Most of my show is Christmas music (some traditional, some not-so-traditional) but I also add a non-Christmas song/mashup each year (usually suggested by my wife and/or kids). If you're going to invest the time/money/effort into putting a show like this one I think its fine to sequence the music you want to see. While I tell everyone I'm doing it for the kids... deep-down, I do it cause I like it myself. That being said, my kids like Radioguy's show more than our own.
Quick question. What’s the best method/glue for attaching pixel strips to PVC? I used zip ties this past season but they tended to move over time and looked sloppy. Not to mention, they pinch the rubber sleeve so I’m worried about getting holes in them. Thanks.
My very first year I used one altered sequence to to get me started (..2012?). Since then though everything has been original. I'm as lazy as the next guy (and I'm sure I'll get a ton of blowback) but I honestly think much of the sequencing out there is hot garbage. Don't even get me started on purchased/shared pixel tree sequences. I've started using pixels this year and I've decided to forgo the pixel editor as I can't stand seeing the same 5-10 effects I see on every other display. Like George said, the beat wizard is the #1 tool in the toolbox. If you can figure out the beat wizard you're more than 50% of the way there.
