Add quality audio output to your Adafruit FEATHER with the new Music Maker FeatherWing

Posted by

Here at Tronixlabs Australia we stock all the Adafruit FEATHER boards and accessories - as they're becoming the new standard for portable, Arduino-compatible projects. And the new boards keep arriving, with the latest being the useful new Adafruit Music Maker FeatherWing for Feather Boards:

Adafruit Music Maker FeatherWing - MP3 OGG WAV MIDI Synth Player from Tronixlabs Australia

This powerful shield features the VS1053, an encoding/decoding (codec) chip that can decode a wide variety of audio formats such as MP3, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, WMA, MIDI, FLAC, WAV (PCM and ADPCM). You can do all sorts of stuff with the audio as well such as adjusting bass, treble, and volume digitally.

All this functionality is implemented in a light-weight SPI interface so that any Feather Board can play audio from an SD card. There's also a special MIDI mode that you can boot the chip into that will read 'classic' 31250 Kbaud MIDI data from the UART TX pin and act like a synth/drum machine - there are dozens of built-in drum and sample effects!

What a great musical add-on to your Feather! Inline header pins are included but not soldered to the board. And you don't need to wait - we have these Music Maker FeatherWings in stock now for $34.95 including GST

And as always - we'll ship your entire order anywhere in Australia for $5. Finally, to keep up with news, specials and more from Tronixlabs, please follow us on facebook, Google+ or twitter.
