first I changed the speed of the serial object from 9600 (the default in the simple message patch) to 115200, this should give a difference I guess?
Can somebody explain me how to make a signal stay on for exactly 24ms and then turn off the signal? I did it in my patch by using a line~ and adsr envelope with a domain of 100ms but I am thinking this is not a good way.
Eventually I will need to have a patch that turns 3 solenoids on for 24ms and off for 39-50ms (dynamically) and another one that just goes 24ms now and then (random)

Interesting opportunity available for sound designer and engineer for
Yaacov Agam interactive glass installation
Sculptor and experimental artist, Yaacov Agam, will be building an
interactive glass installation in Las Vegas.
There will be 35 glass towers, approx. 18' high, 3.5' diameter.
Derix Art Glass Consultants, the glass fabricators, are looking for a
sound designer and engineer, to compose, design and implement
interactive sound to accompany the piece. It will be an outside
installation with interactive elements (i.e., when viewer walks by >
Budget details are negotiable. You will probably need to have further
conversation and propose a budget with Derix Art Glass Consultants.
realisation: fall 2008

I am getting a bit down here, I can't figure out how to make things work.
I don't understand why max can't deal with the messages I send and don't know what the problem is.
Could someone please answer the following q's just to keep me sain?
Can max send precise messages like the 24 ms ON 38ms OFF loop?
Can a serial port handle such fast info and what are the settings to get it right?
Is there a way to get variables into the arduino board so that I can write switch cases to control the tempo thingies and not need max to output really fast things over the serial port (DEFENITLY PLAN B)?
It does make sense, but I just don't know how to do this.
I know there are some issues but I ask myself if it's possible to have an around 24ms (some microseconds more or less) ON and OFF
since it's supposed to mimic thunder it doesn't need to be VERY precise
But the main question is can a serial port handle the amount of date and can Max handle the speed to the serial port?
