Hey all. I'm in the early stages of a voice recorder project. Here's my end goals.
- Small enclosure with pushbutton on side, usb cable coming out bottom connected to laptop
- When button is pressed, device begins listening and saves audio to onboard microSD (5-10 second notes)
- When button is pressed again, recording stops and data is moved from microSD to folder on computer
- Audio quality only needs to be good enough so speech is understandable
Here's where I've been learning most of what I know about arduino audio recording: http://apcmag.com/arduino-projects-digital-audio-recorder.htm/. For me, this seems pretty complex. Are there any shortcuts that can be taken? For example component that will record and store for me when given a signal? I've also thought of using the laptop's on-board microphone, which seems like it would be much simpler but may require some extra computer side coding. Any thoughts on this project? Anyone ever done anything similar?
