[PD] K8061 USB interface board in PD on Mac

i don't know about using .dll on a mac. please tell me if you know.
the dll does all the communication with the card. the pd object, or whatever program, uses commands provided by the dll. 
i further think, that when using a virtual os like virtual box or wine, the communication with hardware is handled by the host os. correct me if i'm wrong.
my humble suggestion, if asked for, was: why not use an arduino? or modify some joystick to your needs and use 'hid'?

good luck

Thank you,

I tried it on Windows XP @ VirtualBox and it crashes PD. However I
would like to try and make my own external for the 8061, It is probably
too hard but I'd like to try it anyway. Or is there a way to make it
communicate without reverting to C?

I once made a MAX interface for a card called MACI/O (worked via a
serial port). I sent hex code directly from the MAX patch to the I/O
back then and that worked. Is that possible with this card too?

  Hello everybody,


for some interface experiments I got hold of an USB interface kit from
Velleman, the K8061. More info: http://www.velleman.be/ot/en/product/view/?id=364910

This board comes with software for windows computers, a.o. a .dll file
for communication.

My system is a MacBook Pro november 2008 with OS X 10.5.6.


Are there people out there who have already used this board in Pure
Data and/or on Mac OS X?

I have already tried to get some data out of it with HID and although
HID works good for joysticks and game controllers it does not get data
from this kit.


Thanks in advance!
