MIDI and Pro Tools

I will try to explain this the best i can. I am wanting to find a way to send a signal to the Road Hog from various microphones (i.e. kick, tom 1, tom 2, over head, etc) via MIDI to control lighting. My idea was to let each microphone send a signal to different lights to strobe on the beat. I hope this makes sense... is this possible?

    None of the Hog-3 based consoles support MIDI notes only MSC, so this would be a bit more complicated than you might think.

    You would need a MIDI Notes to MSC conversion device.

    Hope this helps. :)

    I understand it might be more difficult than expected but its something i am willing to give a try. do you think it would work with the converter?

    Kyle,

    I've used the Event Processor to re-map MIDI commands into the HOG.

    I was going from a MIDI keyboard controller (MIDI Notes) to MSC System Exclusive Messages into the HOG.

    Here's an example of the MSC SYS EX message

    I believe you will need a way to generate the MIDI message from the Mic signal?

    Maybe the way to do it is with drum triggers into a processor like...

    Trigger --> MIDI Processor --> Event processor --> Hog.

    Hope this helps.
