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
The Sound Board has a lot of amazing features that make it the easiest thing ever: - No Arduino or other microcontroller required! It is completely stand-alone, just needs a 3 to 5.5VDC battery - Small - only 1.9" x 0.85" - Built in storage - yep! you don't even need an SD card, there's 16MB of storage on the board itself. Good for ~15 minutes of compressed stereo, and maybe a couple minutes of uncompressed stereo. Double that if you go with mono instead of stereo. If you don't need as much space, we also have a 2MB version. - Built in Mass Storage USB - Plug any micro USB cable into the Sound Board and your Windows computer, you can drag and drop your files right on as if it were a USB key - Compressed or Uncompressed audio - Go with compressed Ogg Vorbis files for longer audio files, or uncompressed WAV files - High Quality Sound - You want 44.1KHz 16 bit stereo? Not a problem! The decoding hardware can handle any bit/sample rate and mono or stereo - 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. We also have a version with built-in stereo speaker amplifier - 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
This board is designed specifically for people who wanted to make props, costumes, toys, and other small portable projects. You can power from 3-5VDC so a 3xAAA battery pack or a LiPoly battery will work well. You can even use our LiPoly backpack to fit on top for an all-in-one rechargeable effects board.
