I come and go from Arduino (and Max/MSP) at a frustrating rate. On a given year I’ll find myself dipping my toes in for some inspiration or hoping to realise an idea I’ve had hanging around for awhile. Often I’ll get frustrated with my present lack of knowledge (and persistence) and shuffle away with an easier host of options at hand.
I think that the tide has begun to turn lately though. I’ve got lots of ideas at the moment that I don’t think can be realised any other way. So into the dark, beguiling terrain of Arduino and Max/MSP I venture once again.
First stop: let’s use some circuitry to communicate with Arduino and control parameters of scaled cycle~ objects in Max/MSP. It’s basic and crude, but it’s a start.
