To make it easier to understand what I'm going for, I'll break up my question into several chunks...
My Goal / Project: I'm currently working on a project where I will have 3-4 RGB Anode LED's changing colors together, depending on the track that is playing (Track 1 = All Shine Yellow, Track 2 = All Shine Purple, etc [8 tracks total]). With that said I'm planning on connecting everything to my arduino.
Dilemma: I recently bought an MP3 Player Shield from Sparkfun
, but now I'm having second thoughts because the Adafruit Audio Wave Shield
is not only cheaper, but comes with a speaker and other stuff.
Why Do I Need Audio?: To play tracks that I will sync with the leds. I was planning on connecting my sparkfun shield with my own bluetooth speaker (using its line-in) so that I can play sound out loud. I have a Veho VSS-009-360BT
. Is this possible? Or should I return the sparkfun one and purchase the adafruit kit?
Has anyone used either or both? Which would you recommend for what I want to do? Which one requires less pins? Thanks so much!!!
