Kick drum triggered stroble light - help

Sadly I'm new to stage lighting (for a band) so please bare with me :)

 

I simply want to have a strobe light activate when I hit my kick drum. My kick drum is triggered so I can split the signal to route to a light source, or use the midi thru if that works.

 

Any ideas? The guys at our local PA/Lightshop responded with "what?...."

 

Thanks :)

Most boards can accept a MIDI signal... wouldn't be tough. Just have to send the flash signal to a DMX controller and have it flash the appropriate channel(s). Never tried it myself, don't know for sure, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

 

You could always go with a lower tech solution and just get a white spot that can run sound activated, right at the edge of the kick drum...

If you are looking for a proper stobe light for this use, I have seen a few DIY project strobes that have an audio trigger input. I would assume there are some commercial units with this facility also.

 

Have a look around at some of the electronics kit hobby shops.

 

Cheers
