Sound to light trigger via a external mic


Recommended Posts

I have a LED bar system that has a line in to be able to use an audio source to trigger the lights to the beat of the music. When plugged in via the line in all works fine.

I want to be able to use a mic to trigger this located in the room with the music. I have bought some mic kits to test. I have used a phantom power supply to make the mic compatible with the line in.

When the mic is up against the speaker all is fine but when I move the mic away from the speaker it cannot detect the bass of the beats to send to the controller. Do I need a special type of mic for this ? Some lighting fixtures have mics on board to trigger sound to light which look identical to the type I have bought.

Any advice is welcomed.
