I am new to Max/MSP and would like to try out to connect a Wii wireless controller to Max/MSP to do real time signal control. How do I exactly connect it? Do I need the sensor bar or just the controller?
Search on maxobjects.com for Wii and you’ll find a few objects that handle it like aka.wiimote. You can use the accelerometer data without a sensor bar, but you’ll need one if you want the IR data. You can get wireless ones or apparently use two candles!
If you are on a Mac then DarwinRemote is a pretty good application that you can route any button/sensor data to anywhere with.
To Steven Miller: Can you use just the controller to control Max or you have to use with Motion Plus? I assume that you don’t need the sensor bar, right? Do you have any simple example patch of how to the [udpreceive] and [OSC-route] object to connect via oSCulator? I am a Max dummy kind of guy. That would enlighten me a lot.
You can use just the controller…the Motion Plus just gives additional (and more accurate) control over direction and 3-axis rotation, if I recall correctly.
If you follow the ‘search this forum’ link in the previous reply from EMV, you’ll find my example patch among them in response to an earlier post a few months back. BTW – you’ll need to download the CNMAT objects for the OSC-route, etc.
