examples of wii remote integration?

    Hi, all.
    I borrowed my sister's boyfriend's wii remote recently to try it out with Max/MSP. I dwonloaded the aka object and built this simple patch:
    All this really does is allow me to record a sample, set a loop of the sample, and move the end point of the loop by turning my wrist, as well as playing the loop backwards. Pretty simple, but I was just trying it out for the first time.
    I'm looking for advice on how to treat the incoming data from the remote. Button assignment is an easy one, but the movement data is a little perplexing to me. Unless the movements are sharp, it seems to be a pretty limited range (about 130-160 per axis) and tends to be unstable. I've seen videos of people using the remote successfully, but have never seen what their patches are doing to handle the data. Just some basic advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks!

      hello.
      scale object lets you transform that 130-160 range to a 0 - 127 range.
      handle numbers with max is full of endless possiblilities. if you have those numbers, then you can do whatever you want... just look for the apropiate object (or make it your self!).

      With all due respect, Gamuso, it isn't that simple with accelerometers...

      ok, it?s true... I was excited being the first time I was to "help" some one in the forum (I should at least wait until I go beyond the max "demo" mode).
      I have no idea of accelerometers, could you link or tell me something? (not a crazy math formula, in school time I wasn?t there!).
      Anyway I have "scaled" the inclinations of my wii that simple way and it has worked to me (to control a fader, a pan, or to play clips in live, etc.)
      Too much time in the forum, I,ll go to eat something...
      Have a nice day!
