A soundboard is a set of buttons that will play sounds or music clips when the corresponding button is pressed. Soundboards are commonly used for sound effects or to select various pieces of dialog on command. They are sometimes used for pranks or by DJs to interject prerecorded sounds.
This project uses the NeoTrellis M4 to create a soundboard capable of playing any 32 audio clips, and puts on a good light show at the same time too! In this project we use clips from the original late 1960’s Star Trek, demonstrating how to work with .mp3 files and create this nerd-tastic tool.
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.
