NEW PRODUCTS - Adafruit Audio FX Sound Board + 2x2W Amp - WAV/OGG Trigger - 2MB / 16MB

2MB - http://adafru.it/e6m

Would you like to add audio/sound effects to your next project, without an Arduino+Shield? Or maybe you don't even know how to use microcontrollers, you just want to make a sound play whenever you press a button. What about something that has to be small and portable? You are probably feeling a little frustrated: it's been very hard to find a simple, low cost audio effects trigger that is easy to use and does not require any programming

UNTIL NOW!

Don't get me wrong, I love the MP3 Music Maker shield, and our Wave Shield is a dependable classic. But you still need to get an Arduino involved. There's all sorts of tricks with ISD chips or recordable greeting cards, but they never sound any good. So after a lot of engineering and tinkering we've come out with the Adafruit Sound Board, the fastest way to add audio effects to a project! We think this is the best sound board for props and costumes!

Best of all, this version even comes with a 2 x 2W stereo class D amplifier!

The sound board is designed to be simple: it does not have polyphonic ability, can't play MP3's (MP3 is patented and costs $ to license, so this board uses the similar but not-patented OGG format, there's tons of free converters that will turn an MP3 into OGG), isn't reprogrammable or scriptable, and you can't have any other kind of trigger type. However, there's a good chance the project you want to make will work great.

We designed this board specifically for people who wanted to make props, costumes, toys, and other small portable projects. Check out the tutorial for all the powering options, you can power from 3-5VDC so a 3xAAA battery pack or a LiPoly battery will work well. You can even use our LiPoly backpack to fit on top for an all-in-one rechargeable effects board

Check out more details on the product pages!

Last night's Open Make: Ryan Swanson from The Urban Conga came to talk about activating public spaces and some upcoming projects, talks and videos from Minecon 2013, we got a Raspberry Pi with Minecraft running on the big TV, brainstorming on our Robot Hacks project, and lots of work on some infrastructure projects.

A project that aims to turn the #RaspberryPi into a personal web and mail server has stuck out its hand for crowdsourced cash so it can finish off its platform.  #ArkOS #Linux
YOU don't need no steenking cloud or hosting company, say ArkOS devs

Lots going on last night at the hackerspace. We had a good-sized group for a Git class and another set of first-time visitors. The Green Tech group is moving along and firming up plans to start projects. The 3D printer has been having some issues but now we've got most of the issues resolved and it's running some good prints. A huge robotic arm arrived - should be an interesting project. The server rack is getting a little more full and we're starting to work out our IT infrastructure.
