Awesome! that did the trick. So after reading a bit about the APA102C leds it makes me wish i didnt have 1000 WS2812 leds lying around. Looks like an APA102 that is RGBW would be an awesome solution.
remote high five for the help!
I had to mess around with the version of sdfat I used but it seems to compile now.
looks like tomorrow is breadboard fun day!
BTW, I am excited to see what you do with the VR pinball stuff! looks like lots o fun!
thanks so much
