Arduino MIDI Drum Pad

This project is a MIDI percussion controller than triggers lights through an arduino board. The arduino receives the MIDI notes from the percussion pad and triggers the lights through relays.

Any type of light can be plugged in to the sockets. For the exhibit we used low powered work lights and strands of christmas lights.

The controller can be rigged up to trigger lights for percussion and other types of stage performances.
