Hello! I’m writing because I’ve been searching high and low for the right way to approach a project, and Pisound seems like it might be capable!
Basically: I have an Arduino patch that accepts MIDI and runs a live light show. This is convenient for our band because I can hit play in a Logic session, the drummer plays to a click, and magically we have a DIY light show perfectly in sync with our set!
The drawback is that I need a laptop on stage. Aside from the beer spills, I just don’t love playing a set with a laptop near me.
Before I purchase a Pisound (which I probably will anyway, cuz this thing seems amazing), do you suppose there’s a way for me to trigger the simultaneous playback of a MIDI file (to send to my Arduino light show) and an audio file (to send to my drummer’s headphones)? I suspect a PureData patch on Pisound may be the answer, but maybe there’s an even more direct solution.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts you may have!
