You need a dmx multi exhanger, and than you connect one led to each channel (64 times :D )

Because of the music, youtube says it's not available in germany.

Would you be so kind to make a step by step tutorial on how to build one of these for our other project http://www.thedmxwiki.com ?

i can do that, but there's a much easier and cheaper way.
only one problem that's the way I still don't know. XD
But i'm busy to make it full color. But i didn't get response from the maker.
If I know howto, i'll post!

p.s. Audioswap is done, so everyone can watch it!

im also quite interested in this project. i can't afford a multi-exchanger £200. but i can afford another arduino mega £25.
52 outputs of which 14 can provide PWM. the outputs can v.easily be expanded 16 extra outputs for as little as 54p using a port expander.

store sequences in its eprom so can work without dmx.
it doesn't have to be dmx, stick an Ethernet module on it, or control via usb we could write external software (or have raph modify a version of ledtrix) so that we don't need to use any dmx channels.

heres a prototype iv seen on the net
http://www.agilesystems.it/?p=56

EDIT:
The shift bright leds every one is using look awsome $4.99 each.
a standard arduino (less pins and programing memory,but cheaper) can control 120 of these at 25fps
arduinos can be linked together.
