Make a sound recorder?

I bought a cheap answering machine, but it's too big for the container I want to put it in. What parts can I use from it? I just want it to record a sound and play it back when a button is pressed. Also, I salvaged a part from a touch lamp. How can I incorporate this for the power?

Video "out" recording? Answered

On certain cameras, DVD players, VCR players it has the red, yellow and white "out", if I were to have a spy camera with the yellow and white "out" how would I record that in the space of a largish pocket? Kipkay's Instructable features the exact same style of camera (go here www.instructables.com/id/Covert-Spy-Sunglasses/)Pic is of my one, not my picture though (sorry). Red is for power.

How can i get my old record player louder??

I bought an old record player from a garage sale. It came with 2 speakers, each having 2 cables  that connect to the back of the record plaer. The player has 3 screws that you connect the 4 bare speaker wires to. (L,C,R. i just double up the center.) Then it plugs into the wall. Iv heard i need a pre-amp but im confused on which one to get and how it would hook up in my situation. Please help and thank you soo much!!

Record Solar Powered Flight

UK-built solar-powered plane has set an unofficial world endurance record for a flight by an unmanned aircraft.The Zephyr-6, as it is known, stayed aloft for more than three days, running through the night on batteries it had recharged in sunlight.The flight was a demonstration for the US military, which is looking for new types of technology to support its troops on the ground.Craft like Zephyr might make ideal platforms for reconnaissance.They could also be used to relay battlefield communications.Chris Kelleher, from UK defence and research firm QinetiQ, said Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) offer advantages over traditional aircraft and even satellites."The principal advantage is persistence - that you would be there all the time," he told BBC News. "A satellite goes over the same part of the Earth twice a day - and one of those is at night - so it's only really getting a snapshot of activity. Zephyr would be watching all day." The latest flight was conducted at the US Army's Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona.The Zephyr flew non-stop for 82 hours, 37 minutes.That time beats the current official world record for unmanned flight set by the US robot plane Global Hawk - of 30 hours, 24 minutes - and even Zephyr's own previous best of 54 hours achieved last year.However, the Yuma mark remains "unofficial" because QinetiQ did not involve the FAI (Federation Aeronautique Internationale), the world air sports federation, which sanctions all record attempts.The US Department of Defense funded the demonstration flight under its Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD) programme. The 30kg Zephyr was guided by remote control to an operating altitude in excess of 18km (60,000ft), and then flown on autopilot and via satellite communication.It tested a communications payload weighing approximately 2kg.At first sight, the propeller-driven Zephyr looks to be just another model aircraft, and it is even launched by hand. But this "pilotless" vehicle with its 18-metre wingspan incorporates world-leading technologies.Its structure uses ultra-lightweight carbon-fibre material; and the plane flies on solar power generated by amorphous silicon solar arrays no thicker than sheets of paper. These are glued over the aircraft's wings.To get through the night, the propellers are powered from lithium-sulphur batteries which are topped up during the day."A lot of effort has gone into power storage and light-weighting the systems," explained Mr Kelleher. "Lithium sulphur is more than double the energy density of the best alternative technology which is lithium polymer batteries. The engineers from the Farnborough-based company are now collaborating with the American aerospace giant Boeing on a defence project codenamed Vulture.This would see the biggest plane in history take to the sky, powered by the sun and capable of carrying a 450-kilo (1,000lb) payload.US commanders say the design must be able to maintain its position over a particular spot on the Earth's surface uninterrupted for five years. QinetiQ is the public company that used to be the British Government's military research department, before they privatised it.BBC articleQinetiQ's page on Zephyr

FM Transmitter with voice recorder.

This is what I would like to have made. I see these in spy websites for cheap. I don't want to spy on anyone but need for for another reason. Can anyone here on this site point me in the right direction. It's a short range FM Transmitter that has a built in voice recorder for up to 4 minutes made. The recorder would have a simple button that you would press to record with a built-in mic and small speaker for playback. The recording when transmitting would loop forever. The unit would be powered by a small battery and solar panel or just solar panel if that would work both indoors and out. The unit would only have to transmit during daytime hours. I would need the FM Transmitter to transmit no more than 100 feet and to meet FCC for USA. The transmission would need to be a very clear transmission because it is going to be used for advertising. It does not need to be in stereo. I've attached an image of what I would like to have made and the case is available at http://www.polycase.com/ Thanks Gregg

Cold thermostat and temperature recorder.

Cold thermostat and temperature recorder. Good day everyone! I luckly obtained for free a freezer with a broken thermostat. I am planning to brew some lager beer, so I would like to replace the thermostat with a digital one, in order to set the temperature on 4°C / 39,2°F / 277,15K (ahah) (lager beer brewing temperature!) and to record it during the fermenting process, transfering then the data on my computer. Before I get lost through the universe of electronics, could anyone of you give me a good advice on where to look? I suppose an Arduino could do the trick, but I know almost nothing about it; so i ask you. Otherwise, I scavenged a "working", non-digital fridge thermostat, but I've just seen that it makes the freezer to get no warmer than -10°C: does anyone know if it is fixable and how to? Many thanks for the attention, and have a good day!

Sound recorder/playback IC?

I need a sound playback/recorder IC for a certain musical instrument that I am building. 25 buttons will be attached to an ATmega644 microcontroller, and the microcontroller will tell the sound IC to play a different sound for each button. The problem is that I haven't found a chip that will store so many sounds seperately, so do you know of any???I've seen the Arduino Wave shield, but I am looking for something with not so many parts.EDIT: I have decided to use the wave shield design, so I don't need any more feedback, unless you have a really brilliant idea

Recording digitally with an analog camcorder

I recently came into possession of a mid-eighties Newvicon analog camcorder. It has RCA outputs for the video and audio (mono), and I'd like to record the output from this camcorder as digital. The idea I had initially was to use something like a Flip video camera (in order to keep it portable), but then I realized that the Flip doesn't have an RCA input... in fact, nothing I know of has an RCA input, unless I wanted to plug it into a computer or a DVD recorder, which negates the simplicity of it recording to a video file that can be dragged and dropped onto my desktop. The reason for wanting to salvage this camcorder and use it instead of just using the Flip is because the video quality is incredibly "eighties" - the color is slightly askew, and the sensitivity to light means that moving the camera suddenly causes ghosting, which, to me, is desirable for the look i'm going for. Personally, I find it fun and interesting to use old things like this instead of the new stuff. The only drawback is the simplicity (or lack thereof) in being able to post things immediately in this digital YouTube age. I'd like to keep it portable. I'd like to keep it simple. Any ideas on a camcorder, or even a "digital go between" that would record onto an SD card or USB drive? Does anything like this exist? If not, I'd like something like an SD card go between, as I have a 32 GB SDHC that would work great for this kind of project. This is the same model camera - the video outputs are located on a proprietary PSU, which isn't a problem for me to carry around, or have plugged into an extension cord.

Camcorder won't record video?

I have recently come into possession of a HDD JVC hard disk camcorder. I got it from a friend who asked if I would fix it for him, so I told him I would ask around. Any comments are much appreciated. It works great! Except it doesn’t record video, it has great sound quality and a handful of cool features. I've already taken it to the store and was told it would be around $200 or more to get it fixed, when I asked what was wrong with it i didnt get a responce from the man at the store. If anyone has any idea what’s happening or how to fix it without spending $200 I would much appreciate it! I dont know if this will help anyone (I didnt find any use of it) but heres the model number GZ-MG30U

Sound record/playback IC? Answered

I know I already asked a similar question, and I have been looking at the ISD chips (mostly the 1110 and 2100), but they don't seem to be available to buy anywhere in the UK. I am looking for a sound record/playback chip that stores medium-quality audio, only about 1-2 seconds (I believe the ISD 1110 holds up to 10 seconds, but can be cut off early). An internal ~1w amplifier would also be handy, but not necessary. The chip needs to be fairly simple to implement, have non-volatile storage, and be available in both DIP and either SOIC or QFP packages, as well as being readily available in the UK. A microcontroller that does so would also be good, I have looked at PICs and PICAXE chips, but it looks like they only do polyphonic tones or very low quality short audio with a lot of effort. I believe the ATTiny 2313 does audio playback as I have seen a lot of kits that utilize this chip.

Where can I find a good recording system for game consoles? Answered

Hello once again, it's Thergox with another screen recording question. Lately I've been hunting down a proper screen recording system for game consoles -- because the ghetto look of a big TV screen at an angle isn't exactly appealing. I am not concerned about computer-central games (Computer referring directly to the Macintosh and PC) -- it is things like the Wii, Xbox, and the PS3 that I am looking to record. Things like Dazzle or EasyCap won't fit -- I am told they are not very good at what they are meant to do. Things more like AVERMEDIA, just a little more in a cheaper price range. Please tell me what you know. Thank you, Thergox.

Standard picture frame that plays a short piece of recorded music

I'm looking to attach some sort of audio playback device to the backside of a standard wall-hanging picture frame. I have the audio as a 30-second MP3 file and ideally someone would be able to walk up to the frame and push a button / flip a switch and the audio would play once through some sort of speaker - quality doesn't have to be great. Pushing the button again would make it play again. I've never built anything like this before and I'm not really sure where to start. My first guess was maybe to take apart a music greeting card, but there's no button to play with that. Anyone have any ideas of what I could do? Thanks.

Finding a New Stylus

It used to work perfectly, however, at some point the arm was allowed ti drop down onto the turntable, and the stylus was bent, and eventually lost. Where is the best place to look for a new (or used in good condition) stylus for an old record player? Would it be more economical to dismantle this one and pick up a $15 turntable at the Goodwill store?

Is there a video editor and screen recording system out there? Answered

I've been looking to record and edit videos straight from the screen of both my Mac and a PC (Windows, as goes with them), but Quicktime and iMovie aren't cutting it -- Quicktime botches the software while iMovie refuses to work properly under its format (Or something).

I am in need of a proper software that can record the happenings of the screen smoothly and an editor that can handle the videos. I am not picky on whether the software only works on the Mac or the PC (Free is good, but price is not a huge matter here). Thank you, Thegox

Need Help with record player wiring/electrical

Hi this is my first post here I have a self contained record player. Its from the mid 70', in great shape and looks really cool. I want to use it to play records and also to play an ipod. It has a mic jack that I use to hook up the ipod. Everything is great except one detail I overlooked - anytime the the record player is turned on, the turntable i engaged. Picture it as the ipod playing nicely yet the tuntable is spinning the whole time. What I dont like about that scenario is that the turntable will be getting heavy use even when its not technically playing a record. So I am really hoping to come up with a way that to disengage the turntable yet still get power to the unit. I took the thing apart and inspected it last night. There are 2 and only 2 wires running to the turntable portion of the unit. My thought is that if I clip these wires and add a toggle on/off switch that i could power up the unit and then control the turntable separately with this new on/off switch. It seems kind of simple to me BUT I dont want to do anything stupid and ruin the entire thing. Also I have no idea if by adding a on/off toggle if somehow theres an unequal distribution of power that can cause problems...basically I dont know much!! so if anyone has any thoughts Id love to hear them! thanks so much. if anything is unclear I can post pics too if that would help. thanks so much! eric
