Hello everyone, I am new to Arduino and I was hoping to get a little feedback concerning the feasibility of a project I had in mind. I have searched through the forums/playground and found some useful information but not quite what I am looking for.
Here is what I want to do for my first project: Have the Arduino receive midi message then have a LED light when a certain note is hit and its brightness will be determined by the note velocity i.e., middle C lights a given LED while a half step up triggers another LED.
Any suggestions concerning how/where to get started or any similar projects to look at would be awesome. Thanks for any input.

Get started here:-

This bangs a solenoidal but it is only one step away from what you wnat. Down load the code and have a look.

Looks good, thank you!
