After a troublesome day i have discovered that the Digital Accelerometer i have is proving to be more compicated than first expected. After further research into the area i have discovered more support material available for anaolog accelerometers and in particular the Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout – ADXL335
and the help page i have found most useful
This is the new component i have ordered from CoolComponents.com at a cost of £22.50 with the accompanying datasheet below.
Until this arrives i will concentrate on the software i will be using, Maxuino and either ProTools or Ableton Live (whichever had the better capabilites i require.
