are you willing to leak some information as to what's going into the firmware, ie functionality-wise? will it be more about play / stop / seek type of things? or will it be possible to do a few more basic things without actually getting into PIC programming? (i guess what i'm asking is will (basic) usage of the thing be pretty much comparable to using, say, the waveHC library? or more like a/the audio codec shield? or both?)thanks!
thanks for the prompt reply ... so play raw data would load the dac? (if i may voice a wish, dedicated functions for setting samplerate and bit-depth would be a neat feature, too.) anyway, will be looking forward to when this is out!
Hi,Just stumbled upon this project, and I have to say not before time !! I have seen several audio player shields but none of them allow the Arduino access to the SD card. Seems perfectly logical to me but yet I have failed to find any (other than this one). The Rugged device was the closest I found but it has no direct SD card access yet (It is planned as I talked to them yesterday, but no planned date). I have a talking logging project in mind that could use a device like this.So a couple of questions if I may:1) How is the SD card access part of the project coming ?
2) Any idea on cost ?
3) I am happy to build from PCB if you have one lying about, I understand if not.
4) What software did you use to design the PCB ? EDIT: worked it out, it's gEDA
