LED Sync’d with MIDI Player Tutorial

Forum user NewLinuxFan designed an LED strip that is synced with MIDI song files.

The strip takes MIDI notes and translates them to assigned colors – C = Red, C#/Db = red-orange, D – orange, D#/Eb = yellow, etc.  The project uses an APA102 LED strip, however the code can be adapted to use other types of LED strips such as the ever popular neopixels (WS2811/WS2812/WS2812B).

There is a great tutorial with code provided on the Lights4Music website.
