Hi all! I've started this project knowing nothing about connecting Wiimotes to a computer. I'm so close, but I need help finishing it. I've got the Wiimote connected, and I made the GlovePie script to turn drum hits into keyboard strokes. But that's where my luck ends. I figured I could type some keys by hitting the drum set, but the lights on the wiimote turn off, even though it's still connected. Also, would you know of some programs to make the drum sounds?

Does anybody have some helpful advice to give me, please?

Thanks in advance guys!
Zach :)

Hi Zach,

You should search for real-time drum synthesizers.

For the Blue LEDs of the Wii Remote, it should be controlled directly from your script.

Thanks again for your help Boon Jin, I'll take a look at those synthesizers. I'll let you know if I get it all working.

But how can synthesizers help in drums?
