[PD] arduino question

Kind of. I am still a newbie to this but i have been using pduino_playaround.
So are you suggesting removing the second value that is sent by Arduino?
What is happening is that pd receives the "on" from the sensor and keeps baninging until the sensor turns off and then it sends another bang when it turns off so if the sensor turns it on it eventually bangs again and resets to 0 again. whereas i just want it to send  bang when it's activated to play a sound and not band when it's done.

You know what? I'm not sure. I've never worked with those sensors. What do you mean by "message to bang?" are you doing a call-and-response between Pd and the Arduino?

Are you working with this sketch? http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Code/PIRsense

that kind of works but after it sends it's message to bang something the PIRturns off when the sensor goes "off" and it sends another value is there a way to ignore that?

Hi Patrick

Are you trying to turn the sample on/off by comparing it to a range?

If so, have you tried something like:

[< 0.3]

I am using a PIR sensor with pduino playground and I have the sensor picking up movement. It's my first pd-arduino excursion so forgive the noobie-ness. When I get the out form the PIR sensor it give me a constant value of SOMETHING The entire time. It's output values range from 0.13-0.664/0.665 constantly. I just want to use the sensor to turn off/on a sample but the file is constantly being "banged" a value. How do I just out put an on/off based upon  this constant stream of Data? I tried select bit that does seem to be working.

It's a simple parallax PIR sensor and I have been having good luck getting usd to wiring and  the breadboard etc. but when I take the analog0 stream/port into pd I do not know how to control that data/

Any help?
