I was just thinking with christmas right around the corner I wanted to do something a little different than the usual lights on the eves. I would like to build a light controller that cues different sections of my lights to music, kind of like this but Ill probably tone it back a little bit, probably around 8 channels Im thinking <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/TD4g0gmQSLk&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/TD4g0gmQSLk&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object> One idea I had was to use a basic stamp to control the light driver, but that means that I would have to spend days programming it to get the timing just right. Another idea I had was to make a mono copy of what ever song it was and then use the other channel to record the program for the light control using a serial signal that can be decoded in real-time (decade counter?) then I could just set my media player to loop and it would repeat itself. I want something as simple as possible and easy to set up as I only have around a month do complete it. Any ideas?
