One of these was included in the large box of discontinued modules awhile back, and I recall seeing a demonstration video about it, but I was wondering if there is some documentation and/or sample code. I searched the forum, documents, and codeshare, but didn’t see any info on it.
I didn’t take it that way, but given you’re relatively new (still - or should that be just) I suspect people weren’t clear if you were really wanting to know why stuff like this one isn’t still around or if you were just joking around
PM me what you’re interested in. I have - ahem - a few surplus to current/foreseeable requirements that I may be able to gift on to you. (looks around, hopes SWMBO doesn’t lurk here checking my posts - admitting I have a module problem is the first step toward recovery dear, honest, not the first step to clearing space to buy more modules you won’t ever need to know about :whistle:
It’s sounding like no one has any documentation, a driver, or a sample application for the Propeller module [PRPLR-GM-453]?
I do a lot of teaching and speaking at conferences, code camps, user groups, college classes, etc., and this would potentially make a great demonstration (e.g., a custom persistence-of-vision “welcome” message targeted specifically for the audience).
It’s an XY* module, and if there isn’t already a driver for it, I could probably write a driver if I had some documentation on it. Of course, I would share the code.
I, too, miss some of the discontinued modules, but understand the economics of these decisions. (If someone has a music module [MUSIC-GM-317] they don’t want anymore, I’d be interested.)
On the Watterott site, I discovered that me three weeks of high school German didn’t get me very far, and couldn’t find a way see English prompts. I’ll have to break out my translation dictionary.
The module at the dx site looks good, but it appears that you have to preload the files to the onboard card and play back from there (unlike the GHI music module that lets you send the data from another storage device or network). I may have misinterpreted the docs, so please correct me if I did.
DFRobot has a similar (although more expensive) MP3 module that requires the preloading of files on its local storage card.
