Beginner LED - MIDI

Ok, so Ive done all the basic stuff with the Arduino that are constantly learning me. All i want to do now is do the basic LED blink but to be coded so a midi signal can be sent to the Arduino from my DAW on my computer to flash the LED.

Whenever I look online it brings up circuits with a MIDI port being added which I don't need so I'm finding it difficult to search anything MIDI related online as i keep stumbling across this problem.

So how are you going to get the MIDI into the Arduino?

If you use a helper app, like hairless on the PC then just miss out the hardware part and go straight in with the software.

Like in this project of mine, just replace the solenoids and drivers with LEDs.
