In SIGNAL mode, the LED matrix has 3 bitSnaps: the input bitSnap, the input auxiliary bitSnap, and the output bitSnap. The first input bitSnap controls one aspect of each preset, like brightness or location; while the auxiliary input controls another, like color or location. The output bitSnap connects to other Bits in a circuit. Use different input Bits to control the amount of signal sent to the LED matrix. This will change the display depending on what preset you have selected. All presets require two inputs to fully control them. When you switch the mode of the LED matrix to SIGNAL, pressing the button labeled PRESETS will cycle the LED matrix through Color Wheel, X-Y, Draw, Spectrum, and Scoreboard. The default preset is Color Wheel. However, if you select any preset and power-off, then power-on the LED matrix, it will return to the last preset used. SERIAL mode gives you total control over the display on the LED matrix. While in SERIAL mode, the LED matrix will display any custom images and scrolling text you make. The LED matrix receives serial data, which it translates into images. SERIAL communication is a way to send complex information between computers and other devices. Serial communication is made up of a series of 'on' and 'off' signals.
