Playing sounds on the Raspberry Pi @raspberry_pi #piday #raspberrypi
WHALEYGEEK has a simple step by step document on how to add sounds to your Raspberry Pi.
Today at Raspberry Pi club, myself and some of the children worked out how to add sounds to their games. The steps you go through are relatively simple, but I thought it useful to document them here for others to benefit from.
We’ve been fiddling occasionally at a school Raspberry Pi club trying to get our integral speakers working on our TidyPi machines, and never quite got it working.
We use a CableMatters HDMI to VGA adaptor on all our Pi’s – the hunch being that because we had something plugged into the HDMI, the Pi had sensed it and routed to HDMI audio (even though those adaptors have no way of processing the audio).
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
