Jasch comport is much better then Serial object for sensor timing!!!

Dear all,

I have been looking a lot into the timing of the serial object these days. Using the timer object to determine the timing between incoming data packages over serial connections.

After a lot of searching why I had data clogging (data packages that should be send separately coming in simultaneously) I finally found out that the Serial object was to blame.

What I did not know and I think you all should know is that there is an alternative for the serial object ported from Pd by Jasch that does not suffer from the same issue. It is called comport and can be found here:

If stable latency is important for you then this object is a must!!!

Good luck, Hans.
