hi there, I'm relatively new to all of this, only received my arduino last week. Anyway, I'm trying to make a simple slider that I can use as a cross fader in ableton. I've used a 10K linear potentiometer and it all seems to be fine on the hardware side, however, when I get the arduino to print the reading from the potentiometer to the serial port (and thus read it from other software) I keep getting inconsistent results, which read like incomplete readings. For example, the serial in values might go something like this:
1022 1022 10 1022 1021 1 1022 102 1022
where the values 10,1,102 seem to be incomplete values of 1022. Consequently when I hook the software side of it up, the cross fader jumps all over the place. I've tried changing the potentiometer but that didn't help. Even when I'm using a serialprint like "knock" I get some "kno" or "k".
Any help would be greatly appreciated
