Tutorial - MP3 Player Shield Quickstart Guide
about 3 years ago
I am making a cuckoo clock with arduino UNO which takes time from Time.h. It consists of operation of a Motor which moves fwd and backwards using a H Driver. It also operates a Servo in between. I tried to make it work with Sparkfun MP3 Shield to play music tracks during various phases of movement. For the motor I have used pins not being used by the Sparkfun Shield. However, the project behaves un-predictably with while using MP3 Player. I am using SFEMP3Shield.h by bill porter to drive the Sparkfun MP3 Player.
Does anyone have experience in such a project, are there any conflicts, should I use a different timer, or a RTC board. Is there any other method of playing music during various movements. I am attaching the sketch I have used. I would be grateful for any assistance.
I am using the MP3 Player board with Arduino Uno. I am also using arduino to control a Number of other devices such as motors and temp sensors. Individually the MP3 shield works very fine, however, the whole thing integrated works at times erratically, should I use end() to reset the board at end of each cycle since the programme operates over a Number of days, any suggestions please.
Ref my previous comment, the song plays well when only one of the stereo earphones are connected, with both connected it gets garbled, any help pl, regards
hello, I wired up my Sparkfun MP3 Player. It works but the songs I play are not very clear and the voice is garbled, though some instruments are clear. The MP3 file is at 192 bitrate. I am using the file MP3Shield_Library_Demo.ino by bill porter. Can you assist me please.
I have just bought a Sparkfun MP3 Shield. I am a little confused, which Library is to be used, there are a Number of them. What is the modification required to be carried out in the files? What is the format required on the SD Card.
