im new to the Raspberry Pi in general and followed this tutorial https://dordnung.de/raspberrypi-ledstrip/ws2812 to control a single LED Strip.

I was wondering if it was possible two control a second strip with a different GPIO Pin and additional Power Supply for the strip.

Thanks in Advance!

Yes, up to 16 strings of WS2812 LEDs, see this blog post

Some developers have driven thousands of LEDs this way.


Yea. Raspberry pi has 2 PWM outputs going to 4 pins. See https://pinout.xyz/pinout/pwm# for pinout.
