I'm studying sound design and I want to work on an installation using patches from MaxMSP and hardware. This is my first experiment using hardware so I need some advice as to whether Arduino is the right tool for me to use.
I was thinking I could use a Duemilanove as the hardware for triggers on draws (like in a cupboard) opening and closing to send data to the patch in MaxMSP to play sound. I would need about 5 triggers. Would a Duemilanove board be capable of this?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
