Adafruit VL6180X Time of Flight VL6180

Hello all,
I'm zgo, and I'm new here ...

I would like to know if the Adafruit VL6180X Time of Flight Distance Ranging Sensor (VL6180) can trigger a midi Note ?
I would like to send a note to a soft synth on a Mac or ( maybe ) a PC .
When the signal is received ( my hand cut the signal ) , a MidiNote is sent ( always the same note, same Velocity, One Shot ).

Thank you for your help !

a lot !!

It shouldn't be too hard. Just have your code check for specific distances and assign notes to the distance readings.

If you are interested, here is the challenge :
The projct was to create a light instrument, when you cut the light a sound is produced .

96 PinSpot Lights completely transformed to have a very small radius light ( 1.5 ° / 4 cm round at 3.5 meters )
96 Lidars
96 SoundPlayers from Adafruit ( 2mo )
32 PCB boards made exclusively for this project base on ATM microcontroller ( 1 board for 3 players )
C++ Code to change the player capabilities ( fade out / return to start point when light is uncut etc ...)

Here is the result in picture.

Enjoy
