I'm new to Max/MSP and could use some help figuring out the Max portion of my project.
So I've created a capacitive sensor using an Arduino which detects touch and sends values into Max/MSP to create sound. Here's a link to a demo of it: (https://vimeo.com/41175169).
However, I have run into a couple problems.
First, the output of the sensor ranges from 0 - 9,000 but only when the number is from 0 to 10 do I want it to make a noise (this is when the user is touching the sensor). I don't know enough about Max to make an interesting sound when this happens, so some suggestions would help.
Second, I'm using Split to detect whether the user is touching the sensor or not. However, I have noticed a delay between the Arduino input and Split's output. Sometimes, it gets stuck on a number even though nothing is touching the sensor. I'm wondering if there's another way of detecting touch more accurately.
Thanks in advance!
