Portable Sound Board Project

Adafruit Sound Board Project
My goal for this project was to make a portable sound board. I ended up using the Adafruit sound board and a lot of their products. The hardest part of the build was actually designing the box. I needed to figure out how to use a laser cutter and making boxes on it required a lot of tinkering. If you’d like a copy of my box plans please let me know. 
Here are the parts 
1. Buttons
2. Sound Board, get the 16mb version
3. Speakers
4. Lipoly Backpack
5. Li-Ion Battery
A lot of the details are in the video but the things I wish I did different were to chain the ground wires together. I did it pretty inefficiently by trying to tie them all together. I also would of made the box a little longer to give more space for the buttons, it is rather tight.

Adafruit Audio FX Sound Board + 2x2W Amp – WAV/OGG Trigger -16MB: Would you like to add audio/sound effects to your next project, without an Arduino+Shield? Or maybe you don’t even know how to use microcontrollers, you just want to make a sound play whenever you press a button. What about something that has to be small and portable? You are probably feeling a little frustrated: it’s been very hard to find a simple, low cost audio effects trigger that is easy to use and does not require any programming
Don’t get me wrong, I love the MP3 Music Maker shield, and our Wave Shield is a dependable classic. But you still need to get an Arduino involved. There’s all sorts of tricks with ISD chips or recordable greeting cards, but they never sound any good. So after a lot of engineering and tinkering we’ve come out with the Adafruit Sound Board, the fastest way to add audio effects to a project! We think this is the best sound board for props and costumes!
