controlling rgb lights on an arduino via max msp

April 16, 2012 | 9:05 am

Hi,

Do anyone of you have experiences with controlling LED lights from max msp to an arduino?

I guess I should use the serial object somehow …

I have the following questions:

1) which arduino to use?
2) which arduino tutorial to do first to get the necessary knowledge?
3) how to use the serial object in max to send rgb data to the arduino?

Thanks for your help and advice!

Due to my lack of coding knowledge, when I used Arduino, I used Maxuino. Check it out:

http://www.maxuino.org/

There are tutorials, downloads etc. Follow the ‘Getting Started’ tut closely and you should be set from there.

Iyad.
