Interfacing Arduino and Max 7
Custom electronics allows you to create unique interfaces and experiences for your interactive installations. Learn how to approach electronics projects from a graphical flow programming approach. Connect switches and sensors to Audio and Video, or control output like LED's based off of audio and video events!
Materials: We'll loan you an Arduino for the workshop, which you're welcome to purchase at the end of the workshop if you like.
What to Bring: You should bring a laptop (Mac, PC, or Linux). For PC’s: Quicktime must be installed! Also, install the 32-Bit version of Max not the 64-bit! You'll have to download and install the Max 7 trial here: http://cycling74.com/downloads/. The Max 7 Demo only works for 30 days, so don't install and run this until just before the workshop. Passed your trial date and don’t want to buy the full copy? Max 7 now has a $10 / month subscription model!
Prior to the workshop, we'll send you a link to download the free Arduino software. If you don't have a laptop, let us know and we'll try to set you up with a loaner.
