Zedomax DIY 127 – Make an Ethernet controlled Color Organ!


For this weekend, we will show you how to make an ethernet controlled color organ that can be applied for some kind of stage lighting.

We will be using the party light we made and simply plugin the MaxPORT module to the serial port of the CuSB22R.

Then all you need to do is make sure to plug in a LAN wire to it.

First you will need to download this MaxPORT package. This package includes the custom MaxPORT firmware you can load to the MaxPORT for custom firmware to allow downloading a program over ethernet. It also includes an open-source VB program you can customize to your application.

Download Maxport v.1.3.0 package

After you unzip the package, you will find a setup file, MaxportSetup.exe.

Run this and install the MaxPORT program into your computer.

The other files in the Zip file includes the Visual Basic source code for the MaxPORT program and some party light programs you can try including the ethernet controlled color organ.

Under Test Programs you will see two files:

partyautomatic.cul - This one is the party light program from our Party Light DIY.
partylightethernet.cul - This one is the ethernet controlled color organ program.

First, you will need to make the party light, so refer to our Party Light DIY.

Then, run the MaxPORT program.

You should see the following screen:

Select the file “partylightethernet.obj” and click OK.

Click on the Top message field and type “asdjkl”, and you will see your AC lights turn On according to your pressed keys.
