I have hooked up the shiftin tutorial, http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ShiftIn and it works great, I uploaded the hello world code and it reacts to my button presses. My goal is to couple the input to LED's lighting up( kinda like the monome) but the reaction time from the button press to the console outputting a byte order seems quite slow, 500ms at least. I have changed the baud rate to the high 115200 yet it still seems slow to react. Looking at the code i know there are a few delays i could bump around but I wanted some help on whch to modify...since when i have lowered them all to 5 ms it still feels very slow when the console reports.
Id love some code or any ideas...perhaps the console is a bad method to show the reaction of button presses?
