Hi Pierre,

Thank you very much for your tips. Yes I have been trying but how would I
configure the analog pins as analog inputs at Pduino? I'm trying with
ultrasonic sensors to read data (which is not on/off). And have uploaded
the StandardFirmata code besides my sensors reading code to Arduino. And
testing on the arduino-test.pd sketch on PD. Ain't working :(
