    building it , no, mapping it yes. You just use whatever you see fit (post or pre fader volume) and you divide then your range in chunks for the different leds/midi signals. I don't go into the exact details but basically that's how you do it.

    There’s also an almost hermetic community that exists in many areas of dance music, where serious hobbyists feed off each other’s expertise but barely connect to the industry – despite many of those involved actually working in it.

    I tried it with a vci300 and the data is outputted as midi - it just caused lots of problems with transfer because of the constant stream of data, drop-outs with sound, etc....
    Although that was a couple of years ago, maybe it's different now..

    Perhaps an easier alternative if you're running windows is Mil0's midi2lcd vu meter.

    I've tried it with regular midi and it was horrible. There is just too much data coming in.
