1. What are drivers?

Just like effects can be applied to Twinkly lights, drivers can be applied to Twinkly Music for Generation I devices. You can select drivers from the Controls panel.

A driver includes an effect and a special algorithm that syncs the movements and colors of your Twinkly lights to your ambient sounds or music. Choose the driver that best fits your mood and music.
