Hey guys, So i am working on a multiple AC dimmer that incorperates the control of two light bulbs right now. I am trying to have a ton of them but for now just two channels is what i am working with. I am having trouble sending multiple messages to the arduino at the same time over the serial port. Is there a way to send two messages at once? or even up to 8? Or set up a metro that it constantly fires messages into it? basically I need to have a constant flow of messages for each one so the light bulbs can update in real time. attached is my max patcher and here is a link to the arduino code but idk how much that will help. any questions or feedback would be much appreciated!
the message input reads as:
AD – start input
50 – percent dim
F – end input
that message goes straight into the serial monitor, i need that and the other one next to it to be firing into the serial monitor at the same time or at a pace where it seems they are going in at the same time. ANY HELP WOULD BE AMAZING!!!!! :)
