LED-Strip (APA102 with Arduino MEGA) 96 LED/m

Hi Nicholas, hi forum
I searched the forum, but didn’t find anything suitable.
I finally managed to do my own LED-Strip (APA102 with Arduino MEGA) 96 LED/m
It works fine, playing my own notes or listen Synthesia.
But I need a NoteOn signal when Synthesia is in learn modus – (screened the green or blue Keys that should be played.) In that moment I whant to light up the appropriate LED.
Is there a way to get that signal?
Or
If not yet possible: can you implement that in a further edition?

BTW: if anybody is interested in my Arduino sketch – please let me know.
Best regards
Bernd (from Germany)

The link in my first reply to this topic has what you're looking for. The "Finger Based Channel" key light option not only delivers left/right hand information via MIDI messages, but also individual fingers if you have any hints set in the song. :)

Hi Nicholas
thanks
it works great now.
In the Synthesia settings I had to choose: switch on (German) Leuchttasten
and choose a Midichannel for "Leuchttasten"

Now it works finr for me :-)

best regards
Bernd
