I looked around on the github site and couldn't find it either. Maybe it's only available as source which needs to then be compiled. I don't know why the .mxe and the .mxo aren't available directly...?
AFAIK, there is not a max patch that works correctly with that model. At one time, Neurosky distributed a third-party patch that worked with the Mindset, an earlier product. That patch produced erroneous output when connected to the Mindwave. For nearly a year, I tried to get Neurosky and the developer to update the patch for the Mindset, but they never did.
I think it was a baud-rate issue. The Mindwave apparently uses a slower update rate. I wish Neurosky would update their patch, too. The Mindset has those godawful over-ear headphones (plus it's 2x the price...).
I agree, I was stuck with using the Mindset in my seminars, and it's a problem to use. The electrodes embedded in the ear cushion are unreliable, too.
I don't see the max patch on the Neurosky web site, although it was always hard to find. IIRC, baud rate for the Mindwave is 115200. I've never used the [serial] object, so I don't know how well it will work, but I hope someone gives it a try. The Mindwave uses a USB RF dongle, so there is probably some sort of drive required as well.
I tried some nice working examples for labVIEW. Neurosky headset works good in it..., so is there another way to take data from headset?
I don't have experience with labVIEW but maybe it is possibe to make connection between labVIEW and max?
In other way I will trie to compile it but I am not a programist and it is very difficult for me.
I'm using the Mindwave (NOT Mindset), MAX5 on OSX 10.6.8. I went through all of the issues described above last year and found a temporary solution using these libs: MindSet Processing library by Rob King and the MaxLink java library. Basically, I just let Processing handle all of the incoming data from the Mindwave, which is then fed into my MAX patch via MaxLink. I found the Processing lib to be more stable than the nonpolynomial object, which I tested with both the Mindset and the Mindwave. I did encounter some issues with Processing crashing depending on what version of Java I was running the sketch on - and that is still a problem. So, if anyone has any insight or can offer some Java help, maybe we can solve this mystery for everyone involved.
Hi, I realize this post is a year old and I've tried the mindwave max patch but it seems that the port is not the same on my computer so I can't get data from Mindwave to Max. Any idea on how can I know on which port number is mindwave connected to?
VINCENTRIEUF - Thanks for reviving this thread. I'm thinking of getting a Mindwave, and trying to understand which model(s) will work. The Trent Books Readme mentions "ThinkGear-based bluetooth EEG sensors." Does that mean it should be the Mindwave Mobile, because the Mindwave Headset does not have Bluetooth?
