Hi - I've just had a friend start asking me questions about how he can make/control a certain sort of (mainly lighting driven) AV rig that he dreams of showcasing at mainly bush doofs (but as a holy grail destination; Vidid in Sydney). With an idea of something along the lines of a <snip> being the inspiration for what he has in mind it's a bit too full on for me to have any solid ideas for him so I'm coming here (at least) looking for any kind of advice to help me push him in the right direction or (at best) a referral to the right of easy to follow/copy projects to let me show him how this problem is already fully solved and just a matter of implementation requiring only minimal hard work. My thought's were initially that he should start by looking into DIY MIDI control (or christmas setups) with arduino/pi but I eventually remembered about something called DMX for lighting (and am just telling him to that that to this google list)... that's the extent of my initial advice for him. So the question is - with this idea of some sort of <snip> (fully sick lighting thing) being the goal - do you have aany droplets of advice or relevant thoughts to drop on me to hand to him? wiring diagrams/control-structures for bulk LED control code snippets for MIDI/DMX control supersonic xmas light projects Please share anything you've got that might help me steer this idea of mates into fruition.
