Sequencing Lights to Music via MIDI and/or Software

My brothers,

Opening a friendly local gaming store in March and will be using LIFX lights throughout the entire gaming hall.

What I’m looking to know is if anyone has used a midi sequencer (fruity loops, ableton live) to automate light shows through LIFX bulbs?

The goal is to launch specific music to specific corresponding and pre-built lightshow at the press of a button via a computer/phone or LaunchPad trigger, or IFTTT API call. I’ll build a server to handle the calls - likely.

We’ve all seen videos of people doing this my hand via python or bash: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56DHY-8M8k0 . The hope is that there is a more intuitive method - or to create one.

I will also be tying the API into my point-of-sale software so when someone wins something, a spotlight shines down on them in the now slowely darkened room, and an audio snippet plays congratulating them.

Thanks for the assist gents. I’m a devops engineer so I’m writting this shiz if its not been done already! Hope you guys are excited to help!

Going to try to pipe this over to LIFX and make a tutorial.

Hi. Wondering if this ever came to fruition. This is exactly the type of thing I’m looking for in order to sync LIFX lights to my stage performance.
