Topic: Infra-red break beam matrix sending MIDI (Read 597 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi all,

I wish to create a matrix of infra-red break beams which, if a beam is broken, sends a MIDI signal to a computer to trigger and event in say, Ableton Live.

I have seen many systems involving modulation by way of a nearer-farther infra-red sensor but none featuring break beam systems. Do we reckon this is possible and if so, where would I begin?

Any help would be much appreciated


The easiest way is a couple of IR transmitters pointing to IR receivers (modulated or static possible). Then detect if a beam is broken and send the message. Also search for laser harp.
