hi Julien!

u can definitely build ur midi controller with Wiring!
there will b many ways to do this and matrix for buttons and leds is the best way to go but also the harder (and more rewarding too!).
u can build ur own matrix using multiplexers to enable u to expand the number of inputs for buttons.

communication with max-msp can b done through serial (e.g. using simplemessagesystem library)
serial will also allow u for more resolution (0- 1024 as opposed to 0-127 midi) in analog inputs - sensors.

sure an 'plu n play' midi sensor box  will be easier but also doesn't have that many possibilities and it's way more expensive.
using wiring will b able to control sensors, blinkies, everything!

Hi rux,

I think I'll buy the platform.
but In order to be sure that as many leds and as many buttons works in midi, I need experiencies from the other
because I cannot buy all if after the tests I discover that it doesn't work  Cry

I'll buy the wiring board and several leds etc.... because even if I won't do this project, I'm very interested by all the features this board provides...
and I use processing too, so..

thank you for your answer
