searching for information about lanbox lcx- digital outputs


    Feb 08 2006 | 10:27 am
    Hello!
    I am working on an art research project about synaesthesia and
    liveart and am in the process of constructing an instrument that is
    built around notions of synaesthesia- extending the capabilities of a
    pump (reed/parlor) organ from 1895 via physical computing so that
    when played it will emit combinations of sound, light, projected
    imagery, aromas, etc,
    If you would like to take a look, my project website is here: http://
    www.notam02.no/motherboard/synaesthesia/
    I have a problem that I need to solve, and suspect that there might
    be someone on this list who can help me.
    I need to control a set of 8 push-type magnet solenoids via the
    digital output of a lanbox lcx. I have a custom built box that will
    connect to the 37 pin connector for this purpose. I am using max 4.5/
    mac os x. I have previously used the max examples available for
    control of lights, but I am unsure about the digital outputs. My
    questions are: What kind of data is needed to be sent? Do you know
    of any documentation about this (can't find it in the lanbox
    documentation files/website) and do you know about any existing max
    patch examples for this purpose?
    with best wishes
