Hi all - I have been reviewing all of the code associated with the Alexa and Google Home color patterns and trying to figure out the dang logic behind the patterns. I want to create a new pattern specific to my project with specific colors and sweeping patterns but the code is overwhelming to me.

for examples see: ...

Does anyone know a simpler method to call the LED's, set the colors, and set the timing?

Thanks for this, but it fails because I don't seem to have the respeaker.usb_hid installed properly?

Hi Stephan,

1. do you use the 4 mics pi hat?

2. what kinds of error do you have?

3. do you open the spi interface as below?
sudo raspi-config
Go to "Interfacing Options"
Go to "SPI"
Enable SPI
Exit the tool

4. we use the pixel library from ... pixel_ring thanks.

Thanks for the above, but I searched around and was able to reinstall usb_hid and it now works.

I now just need to figure out how to do patterns. The above code seems to turn them all on or all off. That is a start.
