I would like to create a lightshow of sorts, for my Keyboard, that can output a midi clock. I have a strip of WS2801 and I am looking for a way to sync colour changes/fades/flashes etc to the beat of music I'm playing. However, I am unable to find a python MIDI library that can read incoming midi clock in real time. Can anyone suggest a library, or better way of doing this, I am able to write the code myself, I just need pointing in the right direction. Many Thanks

  • I can't see the problem with the Raspberry Pi. Where is it? – Ingo Mar 2 '19 at 20:27
  • From my perspective there is no problem with the Pi, I just can't find a library that will let me do this. – that_raspberry_pi_guy Mar 3 '19 at 16:53
  • What exactly have you tried so far, and what issues did you run into? A quick search for "python midi" yields about a dozen distinct possibilities -- something called "mido" looks particularly promising. – Dave Tweed Mar 3 '19 at 19:07
  • I have installed mido, but I cant find anh documentation, – that_raspberry_pi_guy Mar 5 '19 at 23:52
