Deluge and Lightshows
So the Deluge is a pretty little light show in a box, but I was wondering what kind of options you could have for controlling lights and/or video using the Deluge.
Personally I think the easiest way to sync a lightshow to the Deluge is by sending MIDI out of the Deluge and using that to control a DMX signal or VJ software. There are plenty of small products which could convert these two and plenty of "hack"options here too. I don't know whether it is possible to plug the Deluge into a PC running Resolume and have it sync over USB. Reading MIDI data with an Arduino would make it possible to control LED strips directly.
I was also wondering whether it is possible to have tracks playing on the Deluge also send MIDI out at the same time, so you can simply play a set, focus on the sound and mix, but at the same time have your stage lights react to the notes being played.
So I'm just thinking out loud here, but I would love to use the Deluge to control some stage lights once I have a nice little set ready. I would also love to hear thoughts from the community on this. Would linking the Deluge to stage lights or VJ software be something you are interested in?
