APC update

I hardly have time lately to code anything at home. I just dusted of the APC and I made slight progress going almost no sound to some sound…

That is in “dongle” mode. In stand alone mode it works fine. I even added a set of capacitors so you can switch between several sorts of sounds and a light sensitive resistor for that look-without-touching-I-can-play-this-APC-touch

I was successful in attaching it to the computer with the regular standard arduino’s + firmata and playing it from
puredata.But this is an arduino pro mini (5v 16Mhz, from sparkfun). Apparently firmata isn’t entirely the same on these mini’s. Although Since arduino 0017 I can connect and send data, it’s not without errors. First of all


[arduino]_WARNING_currently_unsupported: 176
[arduino]_WARNING_currently_unsupported: 160
[arduino]_WARNING_currently_unsupported: 176
UNKNOWN_INPUT_COMMAND: 0 10263
UNKNOWN_INPUT_COMMAND: 8 12339
UNKNOWN_INPUT_COMMAND: 11 9710

Is what I see when I try to run the pd patch. lot’s of those, thousands…

Another weird thing is that even though pin 13 is unconnected on the arduino, It’s the only pin that seems to work. I really don’t get it. Is there some sort of different mapping? normally only pin 9-10-11 are supposed to work.

any ideas anyone?
