I'm looking for partners in development of a new plugin. The plugin will be named InstruLitez.
The concept of the final working visualization plugin is very similar to "DiscoLitez v2.1 Standard" what I used with it's own circuit (DiscoLitez Deluxe 32), but now I have a notebook and I don't have LPT port what this circuit requires. No, LPT->USB converters don't work.
After a long period of time spent on trying to get DiscoLitez working on USB with no success, I decided to buy a new circuit called PACLed64
In the opposite of DLitez (32 output / 2 state: ON-OFF for each LED), it can handle 64 channels with 255 level of brightness for each channel. It comes with it's test program and the LEDBlinky software is compatible with it too. In LEDBlinky I can set up something similar that I want, but it picks the audio signal from the MIC Input and not that configurable as the DLitez Plugin.
So what I want from InstruLitez?
When visualization starts it shows the 64 channels in table form with each channels actual state (like in DLitez :P ) and when I click on a channel it shows a config dialog for the actual channel where I can set-up when the LED should be lighted on.
Since PACLed can adjust the level of brightness it would be great if this option could be used (think RGB LEDs and color mixing, the circuit is planned mainly for this).
Unfortunately I've just started to learn programming for about two weeks ago and started in C# what I changed to C++ when this project came to my mind. If someone interrested in this project and want to help please don't turn your back on me because my "unknowledge" in programming: Trust me, I can learn lightning fast! Just help!
The PACLed64 has a good SDK (sources in C++ included too) and it contains the .DLL (driver) for the device, so I think communicating and flashing the leds will be the easiest and the last period of programming what I think I can do alone. So somebody who wants to help me and don't have the circuit does not need to worry about how to help with hardware related things.
I mainly need help in a GUI which contains a spectrum analyzer (yes again, like in DLitez) and the actual state of the channels. I know about spectrumData and waveformdata arrays and I can imagine the main working method cycle but yet now I don't have the programming experience to do that alone.
Finally if somebody is interrested please feel free to concact me here or by PM and sorry for my bad english.
