  • Hello all. I’m a new arduino programmer so I apologize if this question seems n00bish. I need to create a project where a pushbutton trigger tells the arduino to begin playback of an mp3 an exact point during the song. I also need to get some sort of sync track (much like smpte) where I can get a running time of the song that is accurate (as opposed to me beginning my own duration time track based on when the mp3 beings playback from the beginning. I cannot find any documentation that tells me if this is posisble. is this trigger v2 only designed to begin playback from the beginning of the track? I have already purchased the mp3 shield before I realized that mp3 trigger shield was more a “finished” product. If this trigger cannot do what I need, does anyone know if the mp3 shield has the capability? The end result is that I need to 1) trigger playback at certain times during a certain track 2) have a synced runtime counter that is accurate for display and duration bar.

No public wish lists :(
