Schematic of microphone and pre-amp for low-noise 8-bit ADC. - SaikoLED. This post discusses how I went about integrating a microphone into the myki such that the low-resolution 8-bit ADC on the ATmega32U4 would be able to get a reasonable noise level.

Schematic of microphone and pre-amp for low-noise 8-bit ADC. - SaikoLED

In the myki light, this is done using the MAX9814, a single chip microphone amplifier with autogain control to prevent clipping and a low-noise microphone bias convenient for use with electrolet microphones. For a detailed circuit schematic as well as an explanation of how to use the MAX9814, please see below the break. Connecting up the Microphone and Input Noise: In this circuit, we can see the microphone on the far left. It is a standard electrolet microphone, most of which require a 2V bias above a 2.2k resistor in series with the microphone and connected to ground.

Audio signals will change the impedance of the microphone, producing a time varying inverted representation of this change. Here it is critical to keep noise low. Using the MAX9814 Chip’s Gain Features Next, we have the attack:release ratio. Préamplificateur micro pour prise de son dans une cathédrale. Wave Shield Voice Changer. Follow the original Wave Shield tutorial We can’t emphasize this one enough: work through the original Wave Shield tutorial before moving on to the voice changer!

Wave Shield Voice Changer

This project has many separate parts, and a misstep with any one of them can stop the whole system from working. It would be tricky to debug the point of failure among all the possibilities. Invest a little time now to get the basic Wave Shield examples working — especially the “Pi speak” demo. This lets you know that the shield is properly assembled, the SD card properly formatted and so forth. Start by downloading the WaveHC library for Arduino…not only for WAV playback, but the voice changer relies on this code too. Adding voice effects and a sound trigger keypad. Stereo 3.7W Class D Audio Amplifier - MAX98306 ID: 987 - $8.95.

Arduino Audio Input : Sampling rate of ~40kHz. In the code below I bypassed the function analogRead() in order to increase my sampling rate.

Arduino Audio Input : Sampling rate of ~40kHz

The code required to do this is fairly advanced, maybe it can be the subject of another instructable if there's interest (leave a comment if you are interested), but for now it's only important to understand how to use this code in the loop() function, not how I set it up. Here's simple explanation (all you need to know for now): Basically in the setup() function I've told the Arduino that I want it to continuously measure pin A0 and forget about the other analog inputs all together. So while other things are going on in the loop() function, the Arduino is constantly updating a variable called "ADCH" with new values from A0 at a rate of 38.5kHz (that's one sample every 26us, you can see it in fig 2). When I want to get one of these values I can just set a variable equal to ADCH, or as I wrote in my code: incomingAudio = ADCH; The code for sampling rate of 38.5kHz with DAC output is given below.

This fully assembled and tested board comes with a 20-20KHz electret microphone soldered on. For the amplification, we use the Maxim MAX4466, an op-amp specifically designed for this delicate task! The amplifier has excellent power supply noise rejection, so this amplifier sounds really good and isn't nearly as noisy or scratchy as other mic amp breakouts we've tried! This breakout is best used for projects such as voice changers, audio recording/sampling, and audio-reactive projects that use FFT. On the back, we include a small trimmer pot to adjust the gain.

ATmega ADC tutorial. This is an advanced course for those of you who want to push your ATmega ADC to its limits.

ATmega ADC tutorial

We will give in-depth information on the inner workings of the ATmega328p ADC (just in case you’re using an Arduino), and show you what the trade-offs are for over-clocking or sampling high impedance sources. But, to start off, we’d like to say: “Don’t forget to DIDR!”. Perhaps the most overlooked ADC register, the DIDR (Data Input Disable Register) disconnects the digital inputs from which ever ADC channels you are using. This is important for 2 reasons. First off, an analog input will be floating all over the place, and causing the digital input to constantly toggle high and low. Unfortunately, Arduino doesn’t do this for you automatically.

Question sur arduino mega2560. Using the analog to digital converter (ADC) on Teensy, with C language. Teensy 2.0 and Teensy++ 1.0 & 2.0 have a 10 bit analog to digital converter (ADC) which can be used to read analog voltages, such as signals from sensors.

The first set of examples alter an incoming audio signal and put it back to an audio output. We achieve effects like Reverb, Phasor, Flanger or Ringmodulator. The second set of examples are outputting computed waveforms like Sinewave, Bell and Xylophone sounds. Building and testing the Audio Circuit around the Arduino The audio input signal is connected via a 10uF capacitor to the the analog input 1 of the Arduino Board. Software Concept. Audio Capture to Micro SD. Arduino's analog-to-digital converter: how it works. Think of any number between 0 and 255 and I can work it out in eight attempts or less.

Arduino's analog-to-digital converter: how it works

If you’re a high-school maths teacher, it’s the sort of nerdy game you can use to teach students binary maths. In the world of electrical engineering, it’s an analogy to the process that goes on inside a typical analog-to-digital converter. Analog-to-digital converters are everywhere — every smartphone, tablet, notebook and PC has at least one because they all convert audio (voice or music) into digital data. Arduino Projects: Digital Voice Recorder Part 2. Last month, we introduced our Digital Audio Recorder by looking at the basics of timer interrupts and how the Arduino Uno’s ATMEGA328P controller can be programmed to create precise timing intervals ideal for audio sampling.

Arduino Projects: Digital Voice Recorder Part 2

We also looked at the ‘double buffering’ technique that allows us to simultaneously record samples and save data to the flash card every 45microseconds. Well, a month is a long time in tech and we’ve made some major changes and improvements – including boosting the sample rate maximum from 22.05kHz to as high as 48kHz (reliant on the microSD card). We’ll explain how, but first, we’ll look at the FAT filesystem and how we implemented Microsoft’s WAV file structure to enable the recorded file to play almost anywhere. Arduino Projects: Digital Audio Recorder. Being able to capture sound, store it and play it over and over again never fails to leave me in awe of its pioneers, from Thomas Edison to Alan Blumlein, the British electrical engineer who, in 1931, invented ‘binaural recording’ – what we now call ‘stereo’. (Never heard of him? Blumlein amassed 128 patents in audio, radar and television that are still in use today, but tragically, was killed in a plane crash during World War II while testing airborne radar.

His loss was considered so great, news of his death was kept secret until after the war). So far in this series, we’ve turned an Arduino into a number of audio-related projects from a digital audio player to, most recently, an audio spectrum analyser. Arduino (Mega) Audio Recording. Record Audio to your Audino Mega SD card. The audio file can be played back on a standard audio application or analysed byte by byte. This Instructable will show you how audio input can be repeatedly added to a 512 byte buffer and then transferred to a SD card in real time.

The period recorded can be altered. The sample rate is 9.4 KHz and the wav file output 8 bit, mono. Whilst not hi-fidelity, the sound quality is perfectly adequate. The recorded wav file can be saved as tabulated data. All files are time stamped using a unix time code sent from the serial monitor. Bjorg: Frequency detection using the FFT (aka pitch tracking) With Source Code. How to track pitch with the FFT seems to be a very commonly asked question on stack overflow. Many people seem to think tracking pitch is as simple as putting your data into an FFT, and looking at the result. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Simply applying an FFT to your input, even if you know what size FFT to use, is not going to give you optimal results, although it might work in some cases. At the end of the day, using the FFT is not actually the best pitch tracking method available for tracking or detecting pitch of an audio signal. While it is possible to make a good pitch tracker using the FFT, doing it right requires a tremendous amount of work.
