Drivers Description


Each driver recreates a different effect on Twinkly LEDs. It’s important to deeply know all the drivers to choose the one that best suits your soundtrack so that you can perfectly match its rhythm and the effect’s design.

  • Vu meter: Make your lights become a super colorful VU meter! Let them move with your favorite song – or with your own voice!

  • BPM Hue: with this effect, you will not only hear the rhythm but see it with your own eyes. All your lights will follow the beat of any song – or even just clapping your hands – with vivid and beautiful colors.

  • Psychedelica: This driver will fill your room with psychedelic  light colors that will flash to the beat and will follow all the music complexities

  • Red Vertigo: Get in the holiday spirit with this red and white-themed driver that will bounce along to your music!

  • Dancing Bands: Enjoy all the power of Twinkly Music with this cheerful driver as colorful lines dance to the rhythm of your sound!

  • Diamond Swirl: Be amazed as diamonds dance, distort, and change size right along with your music!

  • Joyful Stripes: See the stripes dance to the rhythm of your favorite song!

  • Angel Fade: The colors really pop with this driver before slowly fading away!

  • Clockwork: Time will seem to fly with this driver that combines vivid color changes with rhythm-based movement!

  • Sipario: Draw back the curtains on this driver which swipes across your led space with the rhythm of the music!
  • Sunset: Get in rhythm with the sun’s rays as they peek over the horizon in sync with your music!
