Currently one can connect the Morph to Max through a microcontroller and a serial connection using the Innovator's overlay. However in this case the serial baudrate cannot go over the hardware limit of the little serial adapter which is part of the overlay. It seems to be an issue for very fast and multi-touch gestures so a dedicated external might be an improvement. Such a development would also allow to get rid of the microcontroller and maybe allow several Morphs to be connected simultaneously.
So, is anyone developing an "external object" to connect the Morph directly to Cycling '74's Max?
I have made a try to merge the Morph C API examples to the Max SDK under Windows but without success so far. I'd be glad to go on with some assistance if anyone is willing to join.
