What is the nature of the data you're trying to pass across? I suppose it's something that is ultimately represented numerically but what does it represent and how often does it need to be updated?

actually anything that can let me get osc values to an arduino with 2 float values is all I need, it could be processing or pure data or whatever.  I was hoping for a simple pure data patch and a simple bit of code that I could integrate with the other code I have. I abandoned serial yesterday but I can see there are so many options for so many things that I need to stick with it and try and figure it out a little more.

I could use i2c or serial I just got stuck trying to make it work that i thought perhaps it would be simpler another way for a basic programmer(very basic).

and for discussion sake here is the other stuff im doing..not directly on the arduino its a chipkit32 and faster so I know as far as i can see that firmata wont work on it but simple serial stuff should..and im testing the serial for arduino anyway

Sorry, I don't know what OSC values are, but a digital connection would be the most obvious way to go IMO and a simple TTL serial interface would be easiest and best if the Arduinos are within a few feet of each other. You seem to have ruled this approach out but I don't understand why - is there some philosophical objection?

You're mixing a lot of stuff, chipKit32 with Arduino, PWM with an analog signal, serial with I2C and firmata with OSC.

In your sketch you're using some analog value to control two stepper motors. If that's running on the chipKit32, what's the job of the Arduino? Do you have an overall description of your project to give us a picture of what you're trying to achieve?
