    Wow. Looks like it works just like the 3 channel color organ I built back in the mid 60's, except mine was only 300 watts per channel, instead of 600.

    Guess everything old is new again!

    Get this... someone posted on pc a link to their ebay auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/Color-Light-Orga...3A1%7C294%3A50

    Would that be considered old school?

    I saw that over on PC and I was like I don't think many people would want those for synchronized Christmas lights. Maybe just a regular light display but not for the high techers.

    That by chance be a HeathKit light organ?

    I built one from HeathKit in the early 70's. Later I converted it to doing my inside tree lights. My son grew up calling it our "Singing Christmas Tree"..

    I'd have to see it in action to tell if it does more than the color organ. It's kinda pricey for simple functions, but if it does more than just blink a few lights, some folks might like it.

    Also, it appears slanted towards the DJ market with having lights pulse with the beat...

    Didn't get that HeathKit back then, but had a few others!

    New location - new display. Looking forward to 2015 season!

    No Mel, no Heathkit, built from scratch. The chasis was a metal breadloaf baking pan.

    Mark, I believe you are correct that it is geared to the DJ market, since it also has microphone inputs, etc

    Hello,

    I would like to respond to few of the comments posted here. Timbre Lighting Controls products go far beyond the simple on-off blinking of the color/light organs of days gone by. We offer the fastest sound responsive light drivers in the world (8-9 milliseconds). With our product, LiteDriver, any ordinary light, incandescent, halogen or quality LED respond to every subtle nuance of harmonics, that you provide.

    Our products are not just for the DJ world as our trip back to Kentucky to the 2009 PC gathering demonstrated.

    www.flickr.com/photos/41081802@N05/sets/72157621940300934/

    We received nothing but positive from the attendees once they experienced the unique qualities of LiteDriver. Chuck Smith has been of great assistance to our forward progress. His personal introduction of me to many within the lighting world was most encouraging.

    For those who desire a simple plug and play for all of the upcoming holidays (for Chuck, the drivers response to Halloween sounds was an eye opener) to the medical field (bio feed back) or, just everyday relaxation, LiteDriver fills the bill reliably.

    Our light drivers are for any area in which creativity and imagination reign and all is accomplished with the music/sounds that are you provide.

    As to the questions about the microphone inputs and the other built-in features of LiteDriver, including special pricing please do hesitate to contact me.

    Thank you,
