    Hi,
    I want to send out some data to a usb port. I can read data with 'hi' but i don't know how to select a usb port and send something to him.
    Can anybody help me in some way?
    Thanks.

      You're gonna have to be more specific. What's the device you want to
      send data to? Check out the sysex object.

      Depending on the device you want to control from the USB port,
      [serial] may be what you're looking for. But if your device is a HID,
      I doubt it will work.

      The device is a servo controller hardware (similar to SSC-32)connected by USB. And it is a HID device.
      I'd cheched the sysex object but I only found a 'sysexin' and I need somethig like "sysexout".
      I think if I could access to the USB port where the hardware is connected I could send the kind of data (messages) that it could understand. But I don't know how to access to that port and how to send out some data.
      I know that is possible to control servos with Max, but I don't know if its by USB, serial or in an other way.
