connection kit / arduino - crashy!

Post by swishniak » Mon May 22, 2017 8:58 am

hi all

im using an arduino leonardo hooked up to a 8 x relay board and the arduino patch of the connection kit. i have the outputs mapped to a macro and those midi mapped to notes.

its crashing almost anytime i select something in the "arduino" object.

any tips? standard firmata installed.. corresponding baud rates ... on live 9.7.. downloading 9.7.2 in hopes...

ok - dont everyone repsond at once 8)

in addition to it being crashy there seems to be a lot dropouts / noise in the signal so that every 5th or so signal doesnt make it out..

any help would be appreciated

You might want to send a crash/-status report to support...otherwise it's shot in the dark.

Thanks.

for anyone else in this situation; going back to using maxuino + firmata was much more stable

Indeed, i never had problems with Maxuino.
Plus, (unless i'm wrong) i think that the connection kit does not take advantage of the big ones in the family, like the Arduino Mega.
