Hey Im really new to max. Im trying to get it to talk to arduino through maxduino.

I cant figure out how to do this simple command.

I want to turn a button on for a certain time. then it would turn off after that time.

thanks.

so in other words

ON 1000

OFF

thanks

i think that your question is a little vague, i would suggest taking a look at the writing/work of tom igoe who wrote a book "physical computing" which addresses the arduino in particular and it’s interfacing with max. you can also check out his site

this would help in general as well as getting versed a bit on the proper language to better phrase your questions. good luck

thanks for the link. I guess what i cant figure out how to do in max is this.

I want to turn a switch on for a certain amount of time and then turn it off indefinetly. Metro command turns something off and on at the same rates … I would like to make a timer or counter or something that tells the switch/button how long to be on or off.

thanks
