Recording Lights for the studio — MMC?

Post by alexdingley » Tue Dec 18, 2018 7:15 am

Hi all,

Saw a post on facebook, and it sparked my curiosity.

We've all seen those "recording" or "On Air" lights for studios... but I'm guessing that most of them are manually triggered, and that they're NOT directly linked to "being in record" or "record arm" on a given tape deck or DAW.

But, there's probably solutions out there that could connect your DAW (via midi machine control?) to a trigger box that would pass a dc voltage to that light.

My Girlfriend just moved in, and it would be really handy to have a light like that so that she'd know when the music is being recorded vs when we're just jamming in the studio.

Any thoughts / or tried & true solutions?
