I have been creating a touch sensitive floor/dancepad. The sensitivity part is working beautiful. The floor is 2.5 meter x 1.2 meter. It is containing 32 different tiles. Each tile has one 20 mA LED in the center. And I am using an Arduino UNO. Each tile is creating a MIDI signal in channel 1, velocity 127 when pressed. This is done by another solution combining an I-PAC2 http://www.ultimarc.com/ipac2.html creating keystrokes (A, B or whatever keystroke I want) and a software which converts KEYSTROKES to MIDI.
Now to the problem.
And I am an Arduino newbie. (But I know some php and java)
Mission: To be able to let different MIDI inputs control the different tiles in terms of letting the LED light on or of when the tile is pressed.
How shall I even begin? I am a total Arduino newbie but I like to learn.
I'm thankful for whatever help I can receive. Thanks.
