Makey Makey Board and Matlab

hI, I have recently bought a Makey Makey board, which is supposed to be an Arduino Leonardo clone. I was wondering whether it can be connected to Matlab. I tried using the Arduino package, which works nice with my uno board, but if does not seem to recognize the Makey Makey. Anybody have an idea? Thanks Bart

There is not official support for the Makey Makey board. However, if it is a clone of the Arduino Leonardo, it is possible that this will work. Be sure to specify "Leonardo" as the board, in this case, when you set up the Arduino:
a = arduino('COM1','Leonardo');
if you only call "arduino" without arguments, it defaults to "COM3" and "Uno" as the board.

Thanks, I did try that, but it did not recognize it :(. Guess it is not a pure Leonardo clone.
