Just a quick update after a day of trying all kinds of things with MaxMSP and a Korg Elektribe.
- MaxMSP is nice, but sometimes it's hard to find the correct components for what I want. Lots to learn!
- Using an old FTDI Serial adapter for an Arduino Pro Mini is a horrible idea! Spent half the day wondering why the serial connection was buggy! Turns out the drivers are not very reliable on newer Mac OS's...
- We have too many ideas!
So, I've uploaded all our patches to git, but it's far from finished. Maybe you can use it :)
We used a midi/audio interface to send midi to the drum computer, but since it was about 7 years ago I last used MaxMSP this was mostly an afternoon spend on learning how the program works..
* I've updated the Arduino code to use a serial speed of 57600, this seemed to work good with MaxMSP. 115200 was a bit buggy and somewhere online was the tip to use this value; it works well with the nunchuck (almost no delay)!
If you have Wii-Chuck adapter you can use the code in the git to connect your nunchuck :)
More info in next update! Somewhere next week!
