Adjusting Strip Length
- Go to the far right “SETUP” tab.
- Use the + and – buttons or slider to adjust each strip’s # of LEDs to match your physical setup.

A few seconds after you stop making adjustments the lights return to normal operation.
Slide or tap to the color you desire.
Max Brightness Slider
Slide or tap to change the maximum brightness level the LEDs will reach. This can help limit power consumption as well.
Color Option Drop Down Menu
- Static Color – The color never changes, change manually with the color slider.
- Change with Auto Animation – If the “Auto Animation Change” checkbox is checked, the color will change when the animation is automatically changed.
- Change Every Beat – Each time a beat triggers an action the color will also change.
- Occasional Quick Change – The color is occasionally switched instantly to a new color. If music is playing the switch is synced with a beat hit.
- Occasional Fade Change – The color is occasionally faded to a new color.
- Continuous Fade SLOW – The color is continuously faded through all colors at a slow pace.
- Continuous Fade FAST – The color is continuously faded through all colors at a fast pace.
Animation Options Drop Down Menu
No Prefix – These are standard animations that create effects from the related frequency range.
- Blink – Whole strip all on or all off instantly with beat
- Fade – Whole strip all on instantly with beat, fades to off
- Strobe – Whole strip strobe light effect temporarily with a beat
- Scale Brightness – Whole strip brightens or dims to match the beat
- Scale Linear – LEDs light up from one end of the strip to towards the other based on the beat; like a VU meter
- Lasers – Each beat triggers a “laser” to be fired, a group of lights travels down the strip
- Sparkle Explosion – Each beat triggers the whole strip to erupt into a sparkle explosion; like a full stadium of camera flashes going off
- Section Switch (Hard) – Sections of the strip turn on/off instantly with the beat
- Section Flash (Soft) – Sections of the strip turn on instantly with the beat, fade to off
- Scaled Scrolling – The brightness of the first LED of the strip is scaled to match the current beat, then moved down the strip, repeat
- Magic Stick – Block of lit LEDs bounces back and forth between ends of the strip; speed/direction is altered by the beat
Mixed Prefix – These animations create effects based on all frequency ranges and show them all on the single output/strip.
- Scaled Scrolling – The color is also changed to match different frequencies; bass only would produce a red section, all frequencies loud at one point would create a white section
- Lasers – Different color, length, and speed lasers are created based on the frequency of the beat
Constant Prefix – These animations do not react to music. Depending on the selected Color Option the color can still react to music and change.
- On – Whole strip stays constantly on
- Blink – Whole strip continuously turns instantly on then instantly off at a steady interval
- Pulse – Whole strip continuously fades from full off to full on and repeats
- Sparkle – Whole strip continuously produces a sparkling effect
- Chasers – Groups of lit LEDs move down the strip continuously with fixed length and fixed spacing
- Scroll – Changes are made on the first LED then locked and continuously moved down the strip; only noticeable if color is changing
Auto Animation Change Checkbox
When checked the animation will occasionally change to a random animation, the change will be synced to a beat hit. Currently this changes through all music reactive animations. You can still manually select an animation while this is checked and that animation will be shown for a period of time and then be automatically changed.
Noise Filter Level
This adjusts how much noise is filtered from the signal, 1 is least filtered, 5 is most filtered. In most cases you will never need to adjust this. If your input signal is very quiet and no effects are showing then turning this down may help. If there is lots of effects occurring when no music is playing then turning this up might help. When using a microphone you can adjust this depending on how loud the ambient noise is so it only picks up music. NOTE: This is a last resort, a clean input signal or a mic worn in a loud-music environment should not require adjusting this and when changed it typically makes no noticeable difference. Check that you have a good input signal or proper mic placement before trying to adjust this.
There are currently no presets included in the app , so there will not be any presets to choose from until after you create your own. Also note that Presets are stored in the app, not on your ViVi controller, so if you save presets using one phone and then connect to your controller with a different phone the presets created on the original phone will not be available.
On and Off buttons
There are On and Off buttons at the top of the presets tab. Pressing Off will set all outputs to Off and not display anything on the LEDs. Pressing On will restore the last settings that were running, unless you leave the preset tab and adjust settings on the manual tabs, then those adjusted settings will show up.
If the switch is in the Off position it will automatically move back to the On position if you select a preset or if you leave the presets tab and select an animation for an output manually.
Select/Activate a Preset
To send the settings of a preset to ViVi you tap the center of the preset button that you wish to activate.
When activated the whole button will turn green. The currently active preset will keep a green outline around the button.
If you manually change controller settings outside the preset tab, or if you edit the settings of the currently active preset, the green border will be removed.
You can re-activate the currently active preset by clicking it again. This may be useful if the preset uses auto-animation/color and you want to return to the starting animations/colors again.
Create New Preset
To create a new preset, click the circle button with a “+” in the bottom right corner.
New presets will be populated with the current settings of the controller. The easiest way to create presets is to leave the preset tab for the manual tabs and adjust the settings until it matches what you want, then go to the presets tab and click the “+” button.
After clicking the “+” button you will be in the preset editing view, you can view and change all the settings of the new preset. Changing the settings while in the preset editing view will not update those settings to the controller.
After clicking SAVE you will be prompted to name the new preset.
Clicking the 3-dot menu on the right-side of each preset button brings up options for that specific preset:
- Edit Preset – Enter the preset editing view and you can change all the settings of the preset. The adjustments will not be sent to the controller during adjusting or after updating the preset. You must click the preset after exiting the editing view to send the new settings to the controller.
- Delete Preset – This will permanently delete the preset. there is an additional prompt to ensure you want to delete the preset.
- Rename Preset – This opens a dialog to change the name of the preset.
- Copy Preset – This creates a new preset with all the same settings as the preset you selected the menu of.
To change the order of the preset buttons, press and hold on the preset you wish to move, the selected preset button will grow larger and freely move around the screen, drop it where you would like it to go.
