SoundDuino, Audio shield for Arduino
Do you remember our article about the VGAduino, graphic shield for Arduino? Well, this time we would like to present you the new project of the electronics engineer and micro controller programmer expert, Masih Vahida: the WAV Sound Player & Recorder Shield for Arduino. This sound shield let you record and play sound files to or from a Micro-SD memory card with all libraries and samples for the Arduino IDE.
”SoundDuino is a sound recorder and player that is able to play the sound files from the Micro-SD memory card or even record sounds to the memory with your desired file name. It supports FAT16 and FAT32 and you can easily copy your files into the memory and to play them, you only need to use the library that we give you with this shield and just send the file name that you want to play! Yes, very very easy!” Vahida explains.
The shield can play 16 bit 48khz sound files with a very high quality. It also has audio input and output jacks, an onboard microphone as well and can work from 3.3v to 5v. SoundDuino fits nicely on an Arduino Uno and is compatible with any Arduino boards using pins GND, VCC, RX and TX. Moreover, the device is delivered with libraries and examples for Arduino IDE.
