Comment on MaxLink with Max/Msp by mudit uppal http://www.guylevans.co.uk/blog/blog/2010/07/30/maxlink-with-maxmsp/comment-page-1/#comment-145 Sat, 26 Nov 2011 14:15:07 +0000 http://www.guylevans.co.uk/blog/?p=1449#comment-145 Hey, can you help me out here.. Well using minim library in eclipse. Code running fine. Output is like a keyboard with sounds..
What i wanna do is send this sound to max msp and process it there through the max msp patch.. How can i do that? Please help!

Comment on Minim Processing Library (Pachube + Arduino) by wimbot http://www.guylevans.co.uk/blog/blog/2010/06/27/minim-processing-library-pachube-arduino/comment-page-1/#comment-142 Wed, 18 May 2011 17:00:33 +0000 http://www.guylevans.co.uk/blog/?p=1189#comment-142 Hi there,

Have you ever tired to send data up to pachube using the minim getLineIn library as the data feed?

If not, do you think this is possible to do?

Comment on Parsing (Pachube) XML Data directly into Max/Msp (updated version) by Guy http://www.guylevans.co.uk/blog/blog/2010/12/06/parsing-pachube-xml-data-directly-into-maxmsp-updated-version/comment-page-1/#comment-141 Thu, 31 Mar 2011 09:17:04 +0000 http://www.guylevans.co.uk/blog/?p=2185#comment-141 Hi Joel, Thank you so much for your comments.

I have now fixed the contact form on my blog.
I recently updated the wordpress plugin and it seemed i also needed to reactivate the plugin. Thanks for letting me know that it wasn’t working correctly.

Also, the xml parser (Pachube to Max) max/msp patch has since been updated and is now available at http://apps.pachube.com/#mc
(scroll down to the bottom of page).

The current version of Pach2Max (1.01) includes a few updates to the early test version shown on my blog). I would be very grateful if you could give the updated version a test.

p.s You might also like to test out these max/msp Pachube patches, created by Nnimar (from the max/msp forums).

He created 2 max/msp patches, one gets data from Pachube (using OSC) and the other patch receives XML data from a CC128 Current Cost meter.

Thanks again for your comment and good luck with your projects!

Thanks for sharing your Pachube to Max Patch, looks very handy indeed.

I’ve downloaded and opened the patch in Max5, filled in the various variables, but when I get to step 4 (double click to bang), all I get in my max window is an error message. Object: jit.textfile, Message: doesn’t understand “download”. Have I missed something very basic here? PS. Great blog site, heaps of really interesting e-art related info!
PPS. The contact form on your contact page doesn’t appear in any of my browsers (Mac: Safari, Firefox, Iron)

Thanks in advance,
Joel in Western Australia

Thanks for your comment!
I emailed you a few days ago, drop me a line when you get a chance.
It would be great to hear how you’ve been using arduino in your networked architectural projects.

this project is great!
I love the idea of linking the energy consumption to sound. Keep exploring!
