I have an Arduino Neopixel LED light strip
that I want to set up to be in sync with music. I found a similar project
using 6 LEDs. It basically anaylzes the audio-in and converts it to amplitudes for "high" "mid" and "low" and sends those values to the Arduino microcontroller. I have Max 5.0 but am a complete noob. I wanted to use his Max file as basis and just change a few things to suit my needs but his file is un-editable. I can see his file in patching mode but I can't unlock the file into edit mode. So I have a couple questions:
Can I unlock his file somehow to make a few minor modifications?
Is there any other object or whatnot that I can use to analyze an audio input, and get the amplitudes of the various frequencies (like an fft) so I can send that data to my arduino through USB?
I am a huge noob at Max so if you could explain things very simply step by step that would be great. Any help is much appreciated!!!
