Arduino – Max/MSP

April 30, 2011 | 11:14 am


I’m having some trouble with serial maybe someone knows of a better patch/sketch to use?

i have been using this tutorial below :

it works great when i send individual bangs to individual outputs/leds they all work fine.But when i send 8 individual bangs to 8 individual outputs all at the exact same time. The arduino drops information and at times only 2 or 3 leds will come on.

when i use 115200 baud it works quite well ( with a few hickups)
when i use 9600 baud ,its really bad.

someone on another forum said that packets are essentially skipped because the Sketch dose not wait for all to arrive and that the sketch needs to be modified.

anyone have a link to a better method ?

I used to work with maxuino but i heard on this forum that it uses javascript and is allot slower than the serial object. I do hope to find a method that is low latency also. thanks for any help.

I have gone back to using maxuino for now.

If anyone reading this finds a nice reliable low latency serial patch + sketch for communicating max and an arduino please post here. thanks : )

EDIT I was going to recommend this

SARCduino, by my colleagues at QUB:

Not sure if it does serial-output ‘out-of-the-box’ though.
