I need some help. I am trying to get timed outputs from music. I want to create an interface from the computer to control approx 40-50 relays. If anyone has ideas to make this easy they would be appreciated, but ill probably figgure it out soon. I bolded the important questions for easy reference
What i really need is help finding/creating a program that i could animate these 40-50 (or more if i decide to expand) relays to the music.
I want to manually choose the animation sequence, but i need the computer to time it perfectly to the music. I also need to figgure out how the computer will interface to them.
I know there is DMX512 and such lighting protocols but that is a whole lot more than i need (for a whole lot more money than im willing to spend). THis will just be for my friends dance/DJ party i am going to create the intro for... basically a light show set to music.
Any help you could provide, or point me to existing programs would be great.
