Have you got the SSC-32 compiler PC program?

What's an "SSC-32 compiler PC program"?

Without writing code or buying a sequencer, the best way to go about it is to send commands to it with a terminal program, I recommend RealTerm (free). (http://realterm.sourceforge.net/)Check the manual that came with the SSC-32, it has the command strings you'll need.

For programming, you might take a peek at my little sample C# applet that you'll find in the tutorials section here. It will center the servo plugged into port #0, but it's a good example of how to talk to it over the serial port.

The other option is buying the Sequencer from Lynxmotion (http://www.lynxmotion.com/Product.aspx?productID=443&CategoryID=15) (SEQ). It's $40, but doesn't really get you anywhere towards programatic control.

To my knowledge, there is no "SSC-32 compiler PC program". I'm not entirely sure what you'd wanna be compiling anyway, unless you were going to junk the code on the microcontroller and start over again from scratch/"bare-metal" - but why? In that case, you'd be wanting WinAVR.

I second the "RealTerm" recommendation ... even I can use it:)
