Any good links for using external controllers in max such as wii remotes, track pads, hand helds.. etc?
wiimote control – aka.objects – http://www.iamas.ac.jp/~aka/max/
TrackPad – FingerPinger – http://www.anyma.ch/2009/research/multitouch-external-for-maxmsp/
Tablets and Joysticks – look at the hid object reference
For handhelds – OSC
I much prefer Alex Harker’s Wiimote external, although it seems to broken in Mountain Lion: http://alexanderjharker.co.uk/Software.html
On the off chance that you’re reading, Alex, any chance of a fix?
Alex gave me the source code, and it’s now become an urgent issue for me, so I think I will likely be working on adding ML/Mavericks support to the ajh.wiimote object over the next while.
Also, I will be looking at making a Max object for the Sony PS Move, or else an OSC bridge application similar to Synapse/KinectA.
I’ll post updates when I get the chance.
I still think the best external controller is… :looks both ways: Lemur, for ipad.
Mira is really getting close, though, but it’s a ways away from being able to do the crazy shit you can do with lemur.
Some day, soon:
