Max MSP control Arduino
I just started using Arduino, so I don’t know much. I have managed to piece together my first sketch to control a DC motor’s speed and direction. Now I want to control the motor from Max MSP.
I have no idea how to do this. I will post what I coded for Arduino but I feel it isn’t close to what I should have done:
I was wondering if anyone could direct me to a tutorial with in depth description of how to control Arduino from Max MSP. All I can find online so far is how to get information from the Arduino. A lab or something to take me through the steps as I am not at level where just discussing concepts helps.
I would start slow with Arduino but I just started using it to realize a project I already had in my head.
There might be another thread about this so sorry but you can redirect me there if you know about it!
The Arduino Cookbook will be a good investment for you. Search this forum for solutions too, try keywords like: stepper, Arduino control, maxuino etc.
This specific question has appeared here before so you’re in the right place.
Not sure if you are describing a stepper motor (no experience here), but look around here:
Basic use of the serial object:
Sending data TO Arduino:
and a quick trawl via DuckDuckGo returned these:
…one day…..soon, I’ll write something like SensorBox, but called MaxToArduino……no time now tho
Both of your advice is great. I actually used the physical computing lab on DC motor control with an H-bridge to set up my circuit.
I was trying to avoid Maxuino so I could attempt to program the arduino myself just so I could understand it better. But I might just use Maxuino since it seems to be easy to understand and use.
I also found this on the arduino site, in case anyone wants to see more options Arduino suggests
