Hello @naomisaka,

the available Pins and Pin Value parameters are created after an Arduino was successfully connected to TouchDesigner. Did you first select a Port on the Firmata page and toggle the Active parameter?

Cheers

Hello @naomisaka,

just tested an Arduino UNO with Firmata loaded on it and the Firmata Component from the Palette.
After specifying the port on the “Firmata” parameter page and toggling the “Active” parameter to “on”, the “Pin Mode” and “Pin Value” parameters were created automatically.

Have you had a chance to see if it works for you?

Cheers
Markus
