ARDUINO Maxuino Driving an LED high and low



In this chapter, we will explore the most basic code to drive an LED high and low interfacing through Maxuino though using MAX MSP and Jitter 6.

Below are the basic circuit design and schematic.

To build this circuit make sure your LED is aligned properly with the anode and cathode in the correct direction. You should use a 220 Ohm resistor though you can also use a 1K Ohm resistor if you do not have a smaller one.

With this patch you must specify the pin number to function on the Arduino and you must also activate the pin. We are going to use the code (pak digitalWrite 1 1) where the first 1 is updated by the clicking of the message 13. By clicking the 13 you replace the 1 with 13. If you want to activate a different pin simply change that number by unlocking the patch and writing a new number.
