the touch to processing patch now works well. the platform is a bit flakey but as you can see from the video all three electrodes control one of the circles in the processing sketch.
In simple terms, I’ve discovered how to address and take data from each of the electrodes using a protocol called GPIO (general purpose input output) the upside is that this is a simpler way of getting data out. the only downside is that not all electrodes on the touch board can be used with GPIO.
This is a big leap in achievement and considerably simplifies the process of getting and using data from the touch board into processing.
