Serial monitor FHT output help

Hello,

I have a favor of somebody. I have uploaded the fht_adc example program here http://wiki.openmusiclabs.com/wiki/ArduinoFHT to my arduino leonardo. My problem is my laptop isn't fast enough or whatever to process the information coming in through the serial monitor as is.

So I'm wondering if somebody could post the output of their serial monitor using this code. It comes in on 115200 baud. Or if anybody has a solution to this, lemme know.

Thanks!

How have you determined your laptop isn't fast enough (or whatever)?

I'm not sure what you see on the serial monitor will mean anything since byte values are being sent, not ASCII characters.

The thing literally crashes b/c its sending so many things. the serial monitor won't update fast enough

what kind of bytes, 1-1023? 1-4095?

Since a single byte is 8 bits, the values received going be in the range of 0 to 255.

The ASCII table goes from 0 to 127 (255 for extended). Serial monitor probably freaks out when it sees 0x00 (0) to 0x1F (31).

As I said, the data you get isn't going to be meaningful because not everything is a printable character. It probably doesn't make much sense to keep using the serial monitor.
