Every year I handle the lighting for my old HS's spring musical. The last few years they've fallen in love with the cheap RGB LED strip lights. IN the past, we've used the IR remotes to control them with limited success. This year, I've only got 4 stair steps to light as such, I'd like to be able to control them through light the board. Unsure if I'll need 4 channels(if we buy amber LED strips) or if I'll need a 12 channel controller(if we use RGB LED strips), or more if we go with something else. Recommendations? I don't want to break the bank as this is coming from my personal money, but at the same time I don't want something that's going to fail either.
