Maxuino documentation / tutorials
I’m having a hard time finding any documentation or tutorials for getting started with Maxuino. Anyone know of a good place to find some information?

hi, you’re not the only one. Reverse-engineering the ‘documentation’ patches seems to be the only way to go about it. I will probably post a demo patch a bit more approachable in the next day or two. I’m just reading the analog ins on a duemilanove (from analogue LFOs) but the principles should be transferrable.
Hi ashs_au, I have reached the same conclusion. I’m sure it was presented with pedagogic intent ;)
My experience is that although Maxuino is a pretty full-featured system, it’s pretty difficult to take apart and repurpose. I’d highly recommend looking at some of the Serial communication examples in the Arduino distro (w/ included Max patches) and the Max serial tutorial. If you are just looking for a quick start on using the Arduino with MaxMSP, there are some other options available.
Here’s one: http://cycling74.com/toolbox/sensorbox/
Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll look into that.
Andrew, many thanks for pointing me to sensorbox (and for writing and sharing it). It’s just what I needed to get me up and running; very straightforward, and enough pointers to move onto driving Arduino outputs.
