Day 1 - January 1

Today Will & I met up for some time and discussed our options.

We are creating a DJ rig code-named - Hurricane.

Currently, we have a Roland PD-8 Trigger pad that we are starting with. We also have 2 Microsoft surface book 1’s that we are going to be using for running the DJ rig via USB.

Our plan is currently to use 36 rolls that are 5 meters long of a neopixel RGB led called WS2812B. These neopixels are going to act as displays that react with whenever any of the 14 trigger pads are hit.

Will decided that he wants to mainly work on the led’s while I will work on the drum and frame part of the project.
