Firmata Patch – Audio On Making Digital Out Constantly Bang

Hi Everyone,

I am using Standard Firmata to talk with my Arduino via Max. I have attached a picture of my patches. What seems to be happening is that when the toggle for Audio On/Off is clicked in my patch, it causes the button in the Digital Out part of the FirmataPatch to constantly be banged. When I get rid of my send messages in the first patch this goes away, and when the Audio On/Off toggle is unchecked the constant banging goes away as well. Any ideas what is causing this?

What should be happening is that when the meter reaches a certain level, it bangs the send message to turn on a specific color in the rgb led. Instead, the leds are being constantly turned on, and so specific colors can not be made.

Thank you for any help, I am utterly stumped!

figured it out. for anyone who runs across the same problem: don’t put a space in your send and receive messages (i changed “rgb red” to “rgbred” and so on).
