    Possible ground loop?

    I'm having a high pitched whine coming from my speaker (neopixel build) when using certain colors (high power I believe). Has anyone had this problem? If so, is it a ground loop? Any easy fix or am I...

    Hmm, I wonder what caused me to get the rainbow colors. It seemed like some sort of test pattern. Only happened once when I was seeing how long my almost dead battery would stay on.
