Arduino USB Interface with Max/MSP


    Oct 06 2008 | 9:14 pm
    Has anyone successfully established USB communication between a Diecilima Arduino and Max/MSP 5.0?

      There is a Max 5 tutorial called serial communications, that explains how to use the serial object to talk to the arduino. Is this different from what you are trying to do?

      Theres Lots of info on the Arduino site in the playground.

      beyond the tutorials, you can also look at the ITP physical computing
      pages fro more help. http://itp.nyu.edu/physcomp

      Note it is not USB per se. It's rs232 over USB. So you need to install
      a driver on your computer to be able to communicate with the arduino:

      what? first i've heard of this. you certainly don't need it on os x,
      and i've yet to see this kind of need at all with xp or vista. it
      should just work. one common mistake is that you're using the debug
      panel in the arduino and you're also trying to see get input into max
      at the same time. it's a serial device, so one host at a time.

      YOu dont think any drivers with os x and arduino diecimilia. Works
      just fine for me. Ive used maxuinos nice patches, there code to upload
      to arduino through arduinos own app, then just open the maxuino.help
      patch in max and try. works very well.

      I just tried to remove my driver (on OSX), and without it, I can't
      find my arduino (its serial port is missing), even in the Arduino IDE.
      Anyway here is what you can read on arduino.cc "getting started" pages
      There are similar pages for Win.
      With non USB arduino, of course you won't need to do this.
      --
      3 | Install the USB drivers
      If you are using a USB Arduino, you will need to install the drivers
      for the FTDI chip on the board. These can be found in thedrivers
      directory of the Arduino distribution.
      If you have an older Mac like a Powerbook, iBook, G4 or G5, you should
      use the the PPC drivers:FTDIUSBSerialDriver_v2_1_9.dmg. If you have a
      newer Mac like an MacBook, MacBook Pro, or Mac Pro, you need the Intel
      drivers: FTDIUSBSerialDriver_v2_2_9_Intel.dmg. Double-click to mount
      the disk image and run the includedFTDIUSBSerialDriver.pkg.
      < a picture>
      (The latest version of the drivers can be found on the FTDI website.)

      So you don't have something called "FTDIUSBSerialDriver.kext" in /
      System/Library/Extensions/ ?

      Ive installe the drivers and still can't get max msp working with my arduino board. Do I need to include some code in my program to allow max to read the board?
