Hi, My names Ritz Koh who make a media art piece using Max6 , Arduino & vvvv in Korea.
In Korea, there aren't enough education center that teach this program so I write question on
this page. My english sentence can have a many problems, But If you try to understand my
intends, I'll be very thankful to you. so... First, Let me explain what I want to make.
I'm making digital media instrument using Arduino & Max. It has 6 touch sensors and 6 sounds.
so If you a specific touch sensor, It plays a each sound source. But I'm low level user so It has some
programming problem in Max6. You know that If you connect the Arduino & Max, Arduino can
only send a one data and that is Ascii code. So although I want to make a chord[harmony] playing
two sound sources or more, I can't do that using only way of Ascii.
then I found a Binary code's data processing principle. So I appoint each sensor numbers to
1,2,4,8,16 & 32 in regular sequence. and If I touch sensor1 & sensor3 at same time, that can
pretend it [1+4=5]. (or sensor 2& 4, It can be [2+8=10]. right?)
But this code generate so many number of cases. (1&2,1&2&4,1&2&4&8... bulabula)
So I want to 'object' (Max) that can pretend code that sent from Arduino and detect
binary numbers composing (like 13=1+4+8) , and send a bang to each six numbers.
(1,2,4,6,16 & 32.) But I can't find this object or way to solve this problem...
so project is discontinued now and I want to get your advice. please help me.
