If you haven't programmed a uC before, and haven't had an introduction to DSP yet, then it probably is not a good match for your current project. If you were going to use the DSP option, then you would probably buy a medium-end uC evaluation board (like for a PIC18F4455 or Atmel AT91SAM7S64 or similar), and build an audio ADC circuit and an interface circuit to your LED drive board from the uC evaluation board. Then you'd program the DSP algorithm (mostly in assembly with a C wrapper) and test it out using the appropriate debugger.
