Hi guys, im new to max msp and i have a patch that reads serial data from my arduinio.
I essentially have a piezo creating what should be 1 number to assign a midi note, but because of he sensitivity i need for my project, sometimes i get about 3-6 numbers printed when i hit the piezo..
I need to create a single bang every time i hit the piezo as this will trigger a (random) object. What is happening is the random object is being triggered really quickly a number of times, now i need to tell max to 'only bang' on the first number it receives for each sensor hit. So somehow turning what is essentially more than one bang into a single bang every time the sensor is hit..
The project is to detect water drops hitting trays without mounted sensors and this randomly triggers notes and velocities to create generative music.
Any help would be great, but please bare in mind that im a newbie.
