hidio 0.1 (Alpha release) Released 2010-12-24
Finally, I am making a hidio 0.1 release, after many years in the works. USB HID programming has great promise, but its also massively painful. As I recently read on a developer forum, if you are feeling confident in your programming skills, and want to experience some serious pain, try getting code working with the Apple HID Manager.

Project Description

Project resources

This is the next generation of HID API for Pd and Max/MSP. The aim is to have this object perform the same on Pd on GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows, and Max/MSP on Mac OS X and Windows.
