Music Maker FeatherWing w/ Amp


SKU: ADA-034 - Mfg Part Number: 3436


Add music to your project with a combined Audio Decorder / Stereo Amplifier! This powerful FeatherWing features the VS1053, an encoding/decoding (codec) chip that can decode a wide variety of audio formats such as MP3, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, WMA, MIDI, FLAC, WAV (PCM and ADPCM). You can do all sorts of stuff with the audio as well such as adjusting bass, treble, and volume digitally.

All this functionality is implemented in a light-weight SPI interface so that any Feather Board can play audio from an SD card. There’s also a special MIDI mode that you can boot the chip into that will read ‘classic’ 31250Kbaud MIDI data from the UART TX pin and act like a synth/drum machine – there are dozens of built-in drum and sample effects!

Once you’ve soldered the terminal blocks in you can connect any speakers you like, such as our 4Ω 3W or 8Ω 1W. Hey you can even use a surface transducer! Don’t forget to make sure you have a good strong 5V power supply – especially if you’re using the 3W 4 ohm speakers! Our 2.5A power plug is recommended.
