Looking to create the classic audio meter on old boombox that’s a series of leds from green on the left through yellow and orange to red on the right. Basic audio reaction, low level is green, high level lights up through red.
I know how to do this in AE, but trying to avoid a list of things to do in post, and working on a boombox design now, so wanted to get some opinions on easiest way to achieve this. Ideally, I’d love to just find one that’s premade that I can reshape. Not seeing it, though, so…
Seems potentially resource inefficient to create a series of little rectangles that is each fed by a separate trigger via sound effector. Easier perhaps to do it somehow as a single solid, then create a grille to go over it that separates it into separate bits? Not exactly sure how that would work.
Anyone got a short cut to get this cranked out quickly?
