8bit Songs Using Arduino / Zelda Ending Theme

Introduction: 8bit Songs Using Arduino / Zelda Ending Theme

About: Electrical Engineer and Electronics/Tech Hobbyist

Ever wanted to make those kind of gift cards or toys that play a song once you open or squeeze them? With a song of your own choice? Maybe even a song that you made?

Well it's the easiest thing in the world and it'll cost you about nothing!

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Watch the Video

Here's a quick video with an overview of what I used and proof of the whole thing working.

Step 2: Getting the Needs

Here's a List of what you need to get:

  • Arduino (Any type)
  • Breadboard
  • 5V piezo buzzer (You can use other ones if you like, and it's very cheap)
  • LED
  • 1k Resistor
  • Wires

Step 3: Putting It Together

  1. Link the Anode of the LED to PIN 13 on the Arduino and the Cathode to the ground GND
  2. Link the PIN 3 of the Arduino to the Resistor and the resistor to the Negative end of the Buzzer
  3. Link the Positive end of the Buzzer to the ground GND
  4. Upload the program (attached)

Step 4: Success!

There you have it! Your own 8bit player!

You can use it to play any song you like (as long as you can put the notes right).

If you need more details or need to ask me to make some songs for you, don't hesitate, PM me here or visit my blog: Electronetarium
