1  Using Arduino / Audio / Re: Sparkfun Mp3 Player Shield vs Adafruit Audio Wave Shield? on: April 05, 2013, 04:35:45 pm
To start off I don't think that the Adafruit Wave Shield actually comes with a speaker.  I purchased the Wave Shield over a year ago and it didn't come with one.  I use it as a Doorbell at my house to play random sound clips/songs.

One of the limitations to the Adafruit Wave Shield is that it requires you to convert the audio files into .wav format and a low quality.  Quote from their site: "Can play any uncompressed 22KHz, 16bit, mono Wave (.wav) files of any size."

I hope this helps you a little.
2  Using Arduino / Interfacing w/ Software on the Computer / Re: Talking to the Arduino on the SHAPEOKO device. on: January 08, 2013, 04:09:03 pm
Brian, I think what you are missing here is this page.
http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/GRBL
You will need to load your Arduino with the GRBL hex code that runs on the Arduino. (if you ordered the "Full" kit from Inventables the Arduino already has this pre-loaded.)
Then you will be able to use gcodesender to "stream" the gcode to the Arduino in turn the Arduino will send handle that code and control the GRBL shield that is plugged into the top of the Arduino.

If you have any other questions I'm more than happy to help you with this.  I received a ShapeOko for Christmas so I'm fairly new, but I have mine up and running.
