Interfacing Arduino and MaxMSP

    Hi all, I've added a new posting to my blog:
    Get down to the nitty gritty of a Max+Arduino hookup using Maxuino and Firmata!! This is for all the button mashers and resistor twisters.

      Hi thanks for this concise blog; did you notify the main Arduino web resources too?

      Hey, thanks for reading it! I did post on the Arduino forums. I'm probably going to write more on the subject, since what I want is the simplest possible way to initialize a device. I haven't delved into using pattr, but if there were a way to just have it read a JSON file or something each time it loads that would be cool. I've figured out how to set pin modes, but I am still unable to figure out which message to send to activate an analog pin. They default to being turned off. I thought I found the correct message ("/0/analogIns 1") but when I try sending it nothing happens. It makes it to what appears to be the right place, I think it might be that this just isn't activated in Maxuino code? I was poking around, the analogIns() function doesn't seem to do a whole lot.
