Topic: WaveShield - How to Randomize Files on SD Card (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

D-man

Hi!

Any help would be most appreciated. We successfully have a waveshield running all the files on our SD card using the code below (from ladyada.com).

It runs the files in the same order every time. We need the files to run at random.

Does anyone know how to adjust our code so it plays the files at random?

Best.

FatVolume vol;    // This holds the information for the partition on the card
FatReader root;   // This holds the information for the filesystem on the card

uint8_t dirLevel; // indent level for file/dir names    (for prettyprinting)
dir_t dirBuf;     // buffer for directory reads

WaveHC wave;      // This is the only wave (audio) object, since we will only play one at a time

Coding Badly


Step #1: In the lsR function, count the number of files.  You'll need a global variable to store the count.

Thanks so much for the help! I'm fairly new to arduino and processing, so I'm not familiar with the specific strings of code that follow from your suggestion. .

One patch I've been playing with is the following:
Code: [Select]
     
int i[7]={0,1,2,3,4,5,6};
for (int i = 0; i < 30; i = i + 1)


There are seven files on the SD card, and we labeled them 0 through 6. I've been trying to work this patch into the code from my previous post, but to no avail.

I have, on the other hand, managed to insert this patch into another code, and have seem to be getting random play successfully.

Code: [Select]

   #include <SdReader.h>
   #include <avr/pgmspace.h>

   FatVolume vol;    // This holds the information for the partition on the card
   FatReader root;   // This holds the information for the filesystem on the card
   FatReader f;      // This holds the information for the file we're play

   WaveHC wave;      // This is the only wave (audio) object, since we will only play one at a time

   }


   // Plays a full file from beginning to end with no pause.
   void playcomplete(char *name) {
     // call our helper to find and play this name
     playfile(name);
     while (wave.isplaying) {
     // do nothing while its playing
     }
     // now its done playing
   }

   void playfile(char *name) {
     // see if the wave object is currently doing something
     if (wave.isplaying) {// already playing something, so stop it!
       wave.stop(); // stop it
     }
     // look in the root directory and open the file
     if (!f.open(root, name)) {

     }
     // OK read the file and turn it into a wave object

       putstring_nl("Not a valid WAV"); return;
     }
   
     // ok time to play! start playback
     wave.play();
   }


The only problem here is our project doesn't use a switch. We are trying to remove the switch from this new code above, so the files play as soon as it is powered. Haven't gotten it yet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks,
