This question comes up once in a while. As far as I know there is no way to make it work on a Mac without a virtual machine.

I know, I'm just as shocked as you; I thought everything "just worked" on a Mac. (I couldn't resist).
@nom_smile, I think you were talking to me. That only refers to the arduino itself. I have that working already as I've used it to upload sketches for my multiwii multi rotors. What I am referring to is the wt855 sound module which is not an arduino piece of hardware.
This is from the post that jakesoft referenced about the arduino code to work with the module:
"There is a shared Google drive with the control software to upload wav files to the devices, the user manuals, and schematics , they are well written for this type product: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B2_rhDNAxM4sbmRtM2dXM2ZxWUE"
The software is only pc compatible.
JakeSoft.. So the software needs a virtual audio interface? for it to work in a mac setting? (sorry been a bit busy)

No, the WT588D uploader/programmer software (This is the software that compiles the bin file to be uploaded to the WT588D module) works only on Windows.


hey i am guessing that when you used the accelerometer that it eliminated the use of the motion sensor. is this correct?


Dear Friends just a couple of questions.

Im trying to do the same build as Jakesoft using an accelerometer and the clash sensor.
First of all, is there a way to include the "play command" to reproduce the boot up just once sound by including it in the void setup?

Is it possible to play the hum sound in the background and interrupt it as a swing is detected by the accelerometer? Then resume it and continue playing it in a loop.

Im trying to accomplish this without using any delay functions in the main loop to avoid lag.

Currently using the wt588d, an arduino nano and a mm8452 accelerometer.  So far i have accomplished to run the functions "power on and power off" (including led and corresponding sound) with an attach interrupt function, a hardware debounce with an inverse Schmitt trigger and the 1 line serial mode.
