Does successfully control my lights. Two main issues though. First, didn't detect the Hue Bridge on my network without manually entering the IP; I haven't had this problem with any other app. Second, I don't think the music visualizer is actually listening to the music. The lights change rhythmically but not in time with the music, it seems like it a constant tempo. I compared this to the Hue Disco app and the latter does vary the lights based on the temp.

Hi David, sorry you had to manually enter the IP. This is usually not necessary as I use two methods to find the Hue Bridge. As for the music visualizer, please try adjusting the Volume Trigger on the Settings screen. You can also toggle on Detect Frequencies. Please contact me at support@soundstorm.scottdodson.dev for help and/or a full refund.

I took a year off and then came back. This app is more disappointing than before. Reaction time is terrible, themes do not match up to music not sure why I thought this would be the real time light show that it was advertised as and why I paid for it Edit: not seeking a refund. Seeking an app that does what I was expecting. A light show to the music

Hi Jason, please try turning on the Music Visualizer while there is no music playing and then go to Settings. The Volume Trigger slider should be just to the right of the purple background that is fluctuating. You can toggle on Detect Frequencies for advanced settings. Please try v3.4.0 and contact me at support@soundstorm.scottdodson.dev for help.

if I can give 1000 stars I will! love it! great app! works amazing! 5 bulbs so far. turns your place to bloody night club! love light separation for different frequencies. just will install in on other phone and will use my main one! would be great to have functionality with headphones, but understand technical limitations. whatever! it's great! as a feedback- maybe worth trying neural networks approach to remove voices, noise etc, for better experiences, but it will come, I belive).

Thank you so much! To prevent background noise from interfering, please try turning on the Music Visualizer while there is no music playing and then go to Settings. The Volume Trigger slider should be just to the right of the purple background that is fluctuating. Please contact support@soundstorm.scottdodson.io if you have any questions. Thanks!
