USB board and Max/MSP


I think about buying a USB board to use with Max. Given my limited English and my low knowledge about boards and sensors, I’m still confused by few things. Mainly, I’d like to know how to get the data from the board to Max. I’ve seen a demo patch using the ‘serial’ object, but I suppose it doesn’t work with USB boards, does it ? Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.


Ah, no, sorry for the confusion. The patch should work equally well with serial or USB boards. Once you’ve installed the USB drivers, the board appears to applications in the same way as a serial port.

Ah ok.

So I didn’t get it at all…

I was scared to have to code an Max object or something. Feel much better now. :wink:

Thanks for the info. I can order one right now, then.
