One Minute Launchpad Lightshow Class Project

One Minute Launchpad Lightshow Class Project - student project

Your class project is to create a 1 minute launchpad lightshow! This can be any part of the song you choose, free feel to use any of the methods you learned in this class to build your own lightshow. If you're feeling ambitious, you can create a full cover as well, but make sure to post your progress in the project gallery, so you can get feedback along the way. So please leverage this group to get the most out of it!
