SMS Text to Max

Apr 28 2010 | 5:02 pm

Hi all,

this is the first time i’ve been stumped. I’m looking for a way to get an audience’s sms text messages into the coll object. I have investigated many ideas including routing the texts from my phone, and receiving the text messages on a web page, and having max work with the web page. Hm. I’m stumped.

The problem is that many of these options simply exceed my programmer experience. See the thing is I’m only good at Max! I know nothing about any other programming.

I thought I’d send out an s.o.s to this brilliant community to see if someone knows how to solve this problem simply.

using my mxj class f0.pdu you can decode audience text messages sent to a single phone connected to maxmsp via the serialport (simple bluetooth or cable connection). see f0.pdu helpfile under [p more…] on how to poll the data from the phone.

Hi – I downloaded the f0.pdu object – connected an iPhone to the serial port – and the f0.pdu object/Max seemed to recognize the presence of the phone on port D – the Max window reads:

serial: port a: Bluetooth-Incoming-Port
serial: port b: Bluetooth-Modem
serial: port c: iPhone2-WirelessiAP
serial: port d: SoniasiPhone-WirelessiAP

but when I send a text to that phone, should I see the content of the text appear at the outlets of the
" route sendNumber time date zone msgText" object? I was sure hoping that would be the case because that is precisely what I am trying to do – but so far no luck – am I suffering from some basic misunderstanding of the function of the f0.pdu object? Any help or guidance you can provide would be enormously helpful – thank you in advance…
