Volume controller II

Colourful sound control for PC.

This is my volume control with an Arduino Leonardo, RGB LED ring and a rotary encoder. The volume of the music played on the PC is best adjusted with a rotary knob. My volume slider controls the sound of VLC Media Player and Audacious. It looks extra fancy because of the RGB LEDs of an LED ring that light up through the transparent part of the button.

Hotkeys to set
Set up in VLC:
Shift+Alt+F9 Volume up
Shift+Alt+F8 Volume down
Shift+Alt+F7 Pause/play
To set up in Audacious:
Shift+Alt+] Volume up
Shift+Alt+[ Volume down
Ctrl+Alt+P Pause/play
