Twitter Enabled Text to Speech using an Arduino

Let the world know what you’re eating for breakfast with an 80’s style vocal synthesizer!  This project uses an Arduino to send your Twitter stream to a voice generator chip called the SpeakJet.  The setup that I use here can also be extended to other applications where you’d want to translate text into speech, some …

Audio VU meter with Extra wide Dynamic Range 69 dB using Arduino

O’K, after having some fun with stereo version of the VU meter I described in my previous blog-post, now it’s time to do a serious stuff. Studio grade VU meter !!! 24 steps, equally spaced every 3 dB, covering Extra wide Dynamic Range from -63  up to  +6 dB.  Single (mono) channel this time, no messing around, …

True Analog Audio Volume Control using Arduino

ow my Arduino can precisely measure audio input (VU meter),   and obviously, next thing that comes to mind right after measurements, is regulation or control. There are many different ways how to electronically adjust audio volume or level of AC signal.  I’ll name a few: Specifically design IC, Digital potentiometers. Mechanical potentiometers, driven by servo …

Arduino Processing Audio Spectrum Analyzer

In this Instructable I am going to show how to make a program in Processing that analyzes sound on your computer and sends data to an Arduino that controls an LED matrix to show the spectrum analysis. I will be explaining where to get materials, explaining the coding and wiring needed and providing example programs …
