Question:

Hi, is it possible to add more than 1 LED into this circuit? I would need 3 or 4 LED's for a project. Thanks

    Yes you would be able to connect more than one LED, though the LEDs won't say in sync with each other. The number of LEDs that you can connect will be determined by the gain of the transistor I suspect that you should be able to connect 3 or 4 LEDs. If you connect more than the gain allows for you won't damage anything, it will just be a case of the LEDs not being as bright and possibly having the colour sequence restarting from the beginning.
