Sound LEDs

a graph showing the different potentiometer voltage values and the peak response

This is a graph of different bias voltages and the sensitivity of the module, mainly I learned, the potentiometer to one extreme or the other and you get nothing, and there isn’t much change with different bias, I have a 3.3V tolerant Arduino type micro so I picked ~1.5V I have a electret microphone module module and I want it to control the intensity of LEDs, ideally the louder the music, the more intense the light. The second part of that problem is when it is quieter, you want lower light. A wave is captured as an AC voltage so a loud sound has a larger wave, in positive and negative.

I started with a the voltage off the microphone sampled and controlling which lights are on and off in the strip. Louder means that there is more variation in the strip. I have ‘machine learning’ (if you call one variable learning) so that it would still change on quieter music with smaller changes.
