Regular price $27.50 Sale

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 11 Triggers - Connect up to 11 buttons or switches, each one can trigger audio files to play. Stereo line out - Headphones, powered speakers or even wire up one of our amplifiers to make loud sounds. Five different trigger effects - by changing the name of the files, you can create five different types of triggers which will cover a large range of projects without any programming. The sound board is designed to be simple: it does not have polyphonic ability, can't play MP3's (MP3 is patented and costs $ to license, so this board uses the similar but not-patented OGG format, there's tons of free converters that will turn an MP3 into OGG), isn't reprogrammable or scriptable, and you can't have any other kind of trigger type. However, there's a good chance the project you want to make will work great. Adafruit designed this board specifically for people who wanted to make props, costumes, toys, and other small portable projects. Check out the tutorial for all the powering options, you can power from 3-5VDC so a 3xAAA battery pack or a LiPoly battery will work well. You can even use the Adafruit LiPoly backpack to fit on top for an all-in-one rechargeable effects board
