Arduino + Wave Shield

Demo of the Arduino microcontroller platform + Adafruit Industries Wave Shield for sound playback. Although mediocre fidelity (22KHz 12-bit mono), this turns out to be perfectly adequate for my intended task: adding sound effects to a costume project. RAR! Total cost of parts (not including speakers) is around $65. Requires some soldering (the Wave Shield is sold as a DIY kit) and programming to read the keypad and trigger sounds. Apologies for the lack of narration, but I’m all congested with the flu right now.

    Rar. YouTube keeps eating my responses. Sorry if you get a billion copies of this.

    The Wave Shield simply uses raw/uncompressed PCM WAV files. The DAC is a Microchip 4921; although only 12-bit, it’s sufficient for the situations where it’s likely to be used.

    Cool ๐Ÿ˜€

    Does the kit come with an audio decompressor, or did you write your own ADPCM firmware, or just use raw? What does it use for a DAC?
