I am hoping to connect a max patch to some higher-voltage equipment and am a bit confused as to the best way to approach the problem. To make things easy, lets say I want to turn a 100v light on and off using the audio signal from someone clicking their fingers through a max patch: they click their fingers and the light flicks on/off.
I've searched the various forums and it seems there are a number of ways to achieve this. I'm sure a lot of people have experience with this kind of thing so i'd be grateful for any advice.
The important thing is that there is very little delay between the finger click and the light flicking on/off.
The two options i'm considering are:
1. DMX interface. Seems a little over-the-top for one on/off light connection.
2. Arduino connected to a relay. Haven't tried this before and i'm worried that it may be a bit slow in reaction time.
Any advice or comments greatly appreciated! Many thanks...
