Maxuino documentation / tutorials

    I'm having a hard time finding any documentation or tutorials for getting started with Maxuino. Anyone know of a good place to find some information?

      Growing: *in case you are still interested* hi, you're not the only one. Reverse-engineering the 'documentation' patches seems to be the only way to go about it. I will probably post a demo patch a bit more approachable in the next day or two. I'm just reading the analog ins on a duemilanove (from analogue LFOs) but the principles should be transferrable.

      Hi ashs_au, I have reached the same conclusion. I'm sure it was presented with pedagogic intent ;)
      I'm somewhat baffled why he has put so many in/outs on the interface, but then I have an early model. Anyway, I did get it working with analogue inputs for a bit, but I couldn't figure out how, then I stopped it working. So, maybe time to print out the javascript in Max manual, and be clear what's going on.
      Regards, Chris.

      My experience is that although Maxuino is a pretty full-featured system, it's pretty difficult to take apart and repurpose. I'd highly recommend looking at some of the Serial communication examples in the Arduino distro (w/ included Max patches) and the Max serial tutorial. If you are just looking for a quick start on using the Arduino with MaxMSP, there are some other options available.

      Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look into that.

      Andrew, many thanks for pointing me to sensorbox (and for writing and sharing it). It's just what I needed to get me up and running; very straightforward, and enough pointers to move onto driving Arduino outputs.
