Oh Ok. Sorry. Will post again.

Check this out.

In these threads you will find answers to most of the same questions. They were discussed here recently.

:D thanks everyone (and i have deleted the other posts-- sorry!)

i'm using a LDR to turn the LED on without light
and the LED will trigger the Servo Motor to a certain degree of angle.

since i cannot find much information with what i originally wanted to do with the sound,

i've decided to get a Waveshield and SD/MMC card to play the sound from the library as the motor moves.

Hopefully it will work.. and arrive in time! :)

As I have not enough time to wait for the waveshield
I tried to find another way of playing the music file.

But im getting an error ;<

This is the code I used:-

#include <Servo.h>
import ddf.minim.*;
import processing.serial.*;

#define MOTOR 4 //motor is plugged in to pin 4
#define SENSOR 7 //button is plugged in to pin 7
#define LED 13

int trigger = 1;//if button's not pressed, trigger = 0, else trigger = 1

Minim minim;
AudioPlayer player;

Servo myservo;

void setup()//initializing

minim = new Minim(this);
player = minim.loadFile("filename.mp3",2048);

port = new Serial(this, Serial.list()[MOTOR],9600);



pinMode(LED , OUTPUT);
pinMode(SENSOR , INPUT);
//setting button(7) as an INPUT

int move = 0;//movement of the motor in degrees(angle)

void loop()
trigger = digitalRead(SENSOR);
//checks if the button is pressed or not

if(trigger == 0)//if the sensor detects darkness
{//move the motor

digitalWrite(LED , HIGH);

delay(2000);//wait for 2 seconds

//moves the motor 30 degrees 0 to 30
//move += 1 increments the value of move by 1
for(move = 0; move < 30; move += 1)
myservo.write(move);//move the motor by the given value

delay(4);//waits for 4ms
}//end of for


delay(1000); //wait for 1 sec

//this for loop moves back the position of the motor from 30 degrees to 0
//move -= 1 decrements value of move by 1
for(move = 30; move >= 0; move -= 1)

}//end of if
digitalWrite(LED , LOW);


void stop()




The error msg says, import does not name a type???
I'm not sure what im doing wrong :S

You appear to be trying to compile a cross between Processing code and Arduino code in the Arduino IDE.

Minim is a library for Processing.
Servo.h is a library for Arduino.

;( will i have to use something like Firmata to do this????????????
(sorry im new to all of this @@)
