This is my first post, so my apologies if I’m posting this in the wrong category.
Is anyone aware of a MIDI player that will work with WLEDs? I tried Googling and searching this forum, but I struck out.
What I envision is a string of, say, 100 LEDs that would be placed horizontally along a gutter. The MIDI player would play MIDI files, and would light the LEDs according to these rules:
Lower notes play towards the left end of the LED strip, and higher notes play towards the right. Basically, think of the strip of LEDs as a piano keyboard.
The louder the note, the brighter the LED lights.
Each MIDI channel would be assigned a different color. For example, if a MIDI file uses four changes (e.g., one for soprano, one for alto, one for tenor and one for bass) channel 1 (soprano) notes would be displayed in shades of yellow; channel 2 (alto) would be displayed in shades of red; etc…
I started working on a project like this several years ago using an Arduino plus MIDI hardware, but the project got sidetracked. I’m hoping someone has already created something like this so I don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
