“Tap magic” automated sequence maker. well I was tire of not timeing my sequence right so I made this little circuit that takes an output from the plt port and loops it back in to an old keyboard. The program I’m using is winamp and discolitez.com plugin for winamp how it works is you set a frequency range and level and it will output it on the lpt. What I want to do is make it all software driven what it sounds like I can do with disco lites but I need to edit a dlop file. Not to great on programming so if anyone can help me out. I found out virtual keyboard will work with lor.

sounds interesting even if done in hardware... although its tough to make a sound organ do exactly what you want it to but this one looks promising. what is a dlop file? if I know what it is I might be able to take it apart and figure out what its elements are and write a VB program to read and write them. is that the file that discolitez writes to?

I started working on trying to write a program to do this earlier in the season that would allow me to do this with my AL sequences but didnt have time before I needed to get my show installed and running. im planning revisiting this again after christmas, perhaps we could work together on this project.

there is also a totally automated program called LORvis which is a plugin for windows media player, it doesnt create seqences but directly controls the Lights... only 16 channels i think.. but something else to look at. i havent tried it since I dont have any LOR equipment.

I konw i can pull bits off the lpt port in vb but can you spit out keyboard or mouse comands with it? if not i thought of something eles i belive the program was called autoit and it took keyboard macro comands and made them into an .exe and i think i can make a vb program that dose that but would it be slow or delayed?

there is some type of SDK for the DLOP program... perhaps contacting the author naybe we could get access to just his trigger info and then directly write sequence files from it via VB? I tried to drop the DLL into a VB6 enviroment but its not valid and wont take as a reference or an object.. maybe I should to a createobject on it and try it that way.

I started my display with a home built light controller with 64 channels. Works just fine but it has no fadability only on/off. It has come across my mind to use it for the tapper wizard.

Since the hardware and sound to light based on note recognition is done, I am going to hack a mouse today and add an external set of wires to insert the clicks on the mouse line.

Take a look at MIOS (google it) also TS-AudioToMIDI (http://audioto.com/)

MIOS is the MIDI Operating System which is opensource hardware/software for MIDI control. TS-AudioToMIDI recognizes notes in the wave stream on your sound card and creates MIDI on/off notes roughly the same as the music being played. MIOS hardware/software takes these events and turns them into digital events on a micro processor with the ability to have 128 individual LED lights, relays or triacs turn on/off or just about anything you can imagine.
