    I've always just coded the Arduino-Pd interface using [comport] or TCP/IP. Here's my comport method: https://forum.pdpatchrepo.info/topic/13086/arduino-to-pd-vanilla/8

    Hmm, okay I think I get how that works. I'll try, thanks!

    Great input all of it, thanks!

    @AndreasA You could probably round your data...... as you are always close to an integer (no 2 3 4 5 6 or 7).....
    [expr int (0.5 + $f1) ]
    .... maybe a [/ 10] first and a [* 10] after for the data we see....... but of course that is for a particular speed..... so maybe not?
    You could also set a window large enough to accept changes as the speed varies, but filter numbers that are out of range (those around 20 in this case... or is it those around 10?) and reject them.

    Yeah well didn’t give you enough information there. These numbers I get is at maximum speed of my wheel, or rather the lowest number that pd will output when over a certain speed. So I want it to be able to handle that and all slower speeds as well. The [smooth] is awesome, thanks for the tip!

    @AndreasA I'm assuming that the numbers you are seeing in the Arduino IDE are timings you captured on the Arduino, not using [realtime], is that correct? If so I think @alexandros is suggesting that you send those timings to Pd, instead of trying to measure the times between Arduino messages on the Pd side.

    Actually discovered some problems on the Arduino-side as well so I actually had both arduino and pd limit the output there for a while. But arduino is now definitely taken care of. With @alexandros method I’m closer to what I want but not quite there. Thinking about lowering the bar and deal with it as a limitation later on in the actual synth.

    The thing with [realtime] was really interesting read. Good stuff to know!

    Though, it would be awesome to have the resolution of serial_print but with firmata and pduino. Pduino is such a great interface for someone not use to coding and I’d like to add more sensors on the same arduino, which right now feels like a big undertaken without pduino and with my lack of knowledge.

    Is there a way, do you think? Could I mess with the firmata code to add serial.print()? Obviously wrong forum, but just in case someone has tried.

    Thanks for answering.

    I could have mentioned I've actually already tried that but with the same results, unfortunately...

    I’m trying to measure the speed of a wheel to control a synth. I’m using an arduino and Pduino. There is bits of papers taped to the wheel and they pass through a photo interrupter module. It’s using the digital output. I’m using the realtime-object to measure the time between papers passing the interrupter.

    My question is why my output from [realtime] looks like this:

    print: 9.917
    print: 20.032
    print: 19.994
    print: 10.03
    print: 10.025
    print: 20.043
    print: 18.553
    print: 11.467
    print: 20.026
    print: 20.007
    print: 9.879
    print: 20.018
    print: 8.59
    print: 21.44
    print: 10.032
    print: 20.017
    print: 20.02
    print: 10.034
    print: 18.484
    print: 21.428
    print: 10.032
    And so on…

    The numbers are always close to a multiple of 10. I can’t find a single integer ending with 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7. Since I can se the numbers directly from the arduino (in arduino IDE) I’m pretty sure it’s not a problem at the arduino or sensor end of things. The numbers there looks totally reasonable to me. So, what is going on with my patch or with Pduino that makes it look like this? I could add that when using the timer-object there is nothing but exact multiples of 10:s outputted.

    Also the stream of numbers I get is way to inconsistent for my uses and jumps around a lot. As you can see in the patch attached I’m using two [moving-ave] to smooth it out to something near acceptable. Is there limitations to using Pduino or is this again something in my patch.

    Fairly new to PD and arduino so I’m sure there is a lot a can do better. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Also, this guy is great:

    Just starting out myself and he has been VERY helpful.

    I can't believe I spent 4 hours last night trying to understand what suddenly went wrong. Of course it's that simple!

    Thank you very much!

    Hi all!

    I'm having problems with a very simple patch. When trying to unpack OSC using mrpeach the console prints "gatom: no method for /whatever message I try to send". The patch looks like this:

    [import mrpeach]

    [udpreceive 9000]

    If I understand this right gatom is the number-box and it can't interpret the massage. If I attach a [print], the console nicely prints the parameter and a float. That's exactly what the number-box is supposed to receive, right?

    To make this even more strange it has been working perfectly the last few days. Have been reading some old mailing-lists talking about symbols and such related to OSC and mrpeach which I didn't undersand. Could this have something to do with it?

    Using a MacBook '09 and sending OSC from OSCulator. Have tried to redownload and reinstall PD.

    Any ideas?
