Arduino with Max/MSP projects for teaching material

Hello,

I wonder whether you could help me to gather ‘Arduino with Max/MSP projects’ that are documented with audio/video, ideally with attached codes. I am looking for ‘very simple’ projects as well as for more complex ones: installations, performances, new instrument designs, etc.

Any help appreciated,

all the best

Hi Krisztian

Are you looking for teaching materials, or for your own learning? As you’re probably already aware, there is a wealth of material out there for learning Arduino, though not so many with video and/or audio, but my personal favourites are:

ladyada: http://www.ladyada.net/learn/arduino/
tom igoe: http://tigoe.net/pcomp/index.shtml
element14: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0pSfyXOXj8

As for Arduino to Max:

If you need any specific help with a project, just give me a shout; I do lots of Arduino/Max stuff, hardly a guru but I’ve been round the block a few times!

[EDIT]
just noticed the thread title! This book is often recommended:

I guess there won’t be much out there for Arduino-to-Max (but do prove me wrong anyone), as they are both ‘open’ platforms with a multitude of applications.

Hi Brendan,

thank you, I am mainly looking for projects that are well demonstrated, so I can give an idea for my students can be achieved with the relationship of the Arduino and Max/MSP ~ SuperCollider.

The outline for the semester is more or less set as I am covering my supervisor, but I am sure I will find some spicy stuff under you links.

So yes, mainly well documented projects I am looking for that I can use in my teaching.

I will go through your links asap,
all the best

Here’s an example of something I did earlier this year that uses Max+ Arduino and has code + circuits, etc : http://www.ennuigo.com/?p=506

And I’d be happy to share any code/circuits from these projects:

though they aren’t as robust/mature as Scott’s example above.

Hello,

thanks guys, I added both of your projects to the outlines, I will probably show them on the first week’s class. Brendan, thanks for the teaching material, I wasn’t aware of ASK manual, element14 and ladyada : look very useful!

If you know of any other projects involving the Arduino, let me know!

Thanks again, and all the best

For general Arduino related things, there’s also the ITP Physical Computing site : http://itp.nyu.edu/physcomp/

Poke around there and you’ll find labs, Tutorials, sensor reports, half completed thoughts, bits of code, and much more.

While not Max/SC specific, the Serial labs are useful for getting Arduino to talk with software : http://itp.nyu.edu/physcomp/Labs/SerialOut and http://itp.nyu.edu/physcomp/Labs/SerialDuplex
