*PLEASE NOTE THIS PRODUCT HAS NOW BEEN DISCONTINUED* Need to add some audio to your project? This little breakout can decode, play, record and adjust audio from a variety of formats!
  • Decode a wide variety of audio formats such as MP3, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, WMA, MIDI, FLAC, WAV (PCM and ADPCM)
  • Record audio in both PCM (WAV) and compressed Ogg Vorbis.
  • Do all sorts of stuff with the audio such as adjusting bass, treble, and volume digitally
  • Comes with a microSD holder to let you play music straight from an SD card!
  • Special MIDI mode that you can boot the chip into that will read 'classic' 31250Kbaud MIDI data on a UART pin and act like a synth/drum machine - there are dozens of built-in drum and sample effects!
  • 3.3v and 1.8v regulators onboard with ferrite beads and analog filtering for quality analog output
  • Microphone input port that you can wire up a line-in or mic to and record compressed audio
  • 8 GPIO pins broken out and they all have built in 100K pulldowns, simply connect your button from the GPIO pin to 3.3V for an active-high connection
  • Interface pins all 5V compliant with level shifters so you can use the chip at 3V or 5V power/logic!
  • Comes with 220uF stereo blocking capacitors on the output. This means you can plug the output into headphones or a stereo without risk of damage.
Adafruit have even put together a comprehensive tutorial to help you get started!
