Need help with a melody

I need a little help with arduino playing some noise. I want to play a first few seconds of this (on a piezo speaker) ;D:

Problem is that me and music are two different worlds. So if anyone can write some code that will play that - I will be extreamly grateful.

Try this. I don’t even know what the “Knight Rider” RTTTL sounds like, so don’t yell at me if it’s really cheezy. There are other RTTTL’s for Knight Rider (search for RTTTL Knight Rider).

I originally wrote this for the Tone library which has now been adapted and included in the core for Arduino.

So this is the core version of the RTTTL playback sketch (using the built-in tone(), noTone() features of Arduino).

// A fun sketch to demonstrate the use of the Tone library.
// By Brett Hagman

// To mix the output of the signals to output to a small speaker (i.e. 8 Ohms or higher),
// simply use 1K Ohm resistors from each output pin and tie them together at the speaker.
// Don't forget to connect the other side of the speaker to ground!

// You can get more RTTTL (RingTone Text Transfer Language) songs from
// http://code.google.com/p/rogue-code/wiki/ToneLibraryDocumentation

Wow!
Nice piece of code! For the past half an hour I have been trying so many different theme songs :). And searching for the best one.

EDIT: I don’t like the Knight Rider - probablt because it doesn’t sound anything like what it should sound like. But I do like Macgyver (probably because the theme song is more beepy in the original - you can almost recognize it ;D).

Yeah, the macgyver one could be easily represented through beeps.

I found this one:

MacGyver:d=4,o=6,b=127:8c,8c,8c,8c,8c,8c,2b5,8f_5,8a5,8p,2g5,8c,8c,8p,b5,8a5,8b5,8a5,8g5,8p,e,a.5,16p,b.5,16p,c,8b5,8a5,c

It is nice but it is too short. :slight_smile:

I found this one:
Code:
MacGyver:d=4,o=6,b=127:8c,8c,8c,8c,8c,8c,2b5,8f_5,8a5,8p,2g5,8c,8c,8p,b5,8a5,8b5,8a5,8g5,8p,e,a.5,16p,b.5,16p,c,8b5,8a5,c

It is nice but it is too short.

I finished the short clip of the MacGyver theme. I think it sounds pretty close to the original theme song.

Tell me what you guys think.

XD

Played around with this today - WAY too much fun!!

Somebody should put this in the playground (with the macgyver theme added)…

:slight_smile:

not to toss this thread off topic, but cr0sh, check your PM!

I posted a video of my setup playing the MacGyver theme.
