usb-hub --> [hi]


    Jul 26 2011 | 5:29 pm
    Hi all!
    I need to use a usb-hub (10 ports) to route data from multiple usb devices to Max.
    1) Does anyone knows if I could separate those data in a way that Max knows which data comes from which port?
    2) If that is not possible with [hi], is there another object/abstraction I could use?
    Any suggestions welcome!
    Thanks,

      in my exeprience, the hi object menu in the hi help tutorial generates a unique name per usb device. While you wont be able to find out the hub port per se, you should be able to distinguish between the devices themselves.

      Thanx lokey but, I really need it to distinguish between the ports, e.g 10 identical joysticks connected to the max running computer using a 10 port usb-hub.
      Any other suggestions, please?
