Max, Node and "Node-Red"


    Nov 18 2018 | 9:58 pm
    Hi all Apologies for my ignorance, as I'm very new to the use of 'Node'. I have recently started working with a brain-computer interface (BCI) from Emotiv - they have created a BCI toolkit using "Node-Red" a web-based flow editor built on Node.js
    Is anyone here familiar with Node-Red …enough to know some ways that Node-Red might be used with (or within) Max8?
    Thanks in advance George Khut

      You can find really great tuts for Node Red on www.randomnerdtutorials. com
      BTW, is node.js and node-red related in some way? I didn't look it up, but my guess is they are not.

      node-red is great integration platform written in node.js that also supports OSC making it easy to integrate with max8 -- you'll be doing some "patching" in node-red after installing the BCI and OSC nodes (add-ons) wiring up your BCI stuff up to an OSC node that then talks to a max8 patch listening for the incoming OSC messages. the other interesting thing is you could be running your BCI stuff/node-red on your max8 computer, or put it on another computer if that's more appropriate for your particular use case

      Hi everyone, Following your advice I started using node-red with Max/MSP and an EPOC + After several hours of research I came to that (screenshot) However, max map receives only a "bang" I would like to receive digital data ! Do you have any idea how to solve this problem? Have a nice day Ed.

      don't have the bci to confirm, but according to the emotive node-red docs, you should connect the [EMOTIV] node output directly to [Performance Metrics] -- [Profile Name] output would be either [Mental Commands] or [Facial Expressions]
