DIY music box with PIC32

Posted on Thursday, January 19th, 2012 in project logs by DP

Markus built a DIY music box from some old speakers and a PIC32 microcontroller. The uC generates the sound, and the amplifier that’s integrated into the speakers amplifies it.

being inspired by another project of ChaN I decided to build my own music box. The theory is described in detail on ChaN’s page, so I won’t repeat it here. Instead of an ATtiny, mine uses a PIC32 and has therefore enough processing power to play up to 64 notes simultaneously

Via the forum.

Check out the video after the break.

    It is beautiful and lovely. I’m impressed!

    You should take your project down because it is obviously commercial quality.
