A DIY Xbox 360 Trashtalk





Introduction: A DIY Xbox 360 Trashtalk

Always wanted one of those controller addons which give you the ability to send sound bites through xbox live? And then dont want to fork out the money? Well in this insuructable i will show you how to make you own with a cheap MP3 Player

Step 1: Get Your Parts

You will need:
An xbox 360 controller (with or without chatpad)
A Cheap MP3 player
A 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable
A 3.5mm to 2-2.5mm Connector
Some Blu-tack or Tape

Step 2: Attach the MP3 Player to the Controller

Using the blu-tack or the tape which ever, Stick the MP3 player onto the bottom of the controller, I find that the battery pack is best as you can still reach the controls and use the controller accordingly.

Step 3: Plug It In

Simple step. Plug in all the cables, one end into the headphone jack of the Mp3 player, the other into the adaptor, The adaptor into the controller and your away. Also then tidy up the cabling so it looks neat

Step 4: Load Up Some Sounds

I found that music comes out very distorted and not easy to hear. Voice and snippets are perfect. I got hold of some Team Fortress 2 Taunts, Duke Nukem and Pacman sounds. Load them onto the MP3 player, Connect it up, hit play, turn the volume down to around 7ish or it will be too loud

Step 5: The End

So inconclusion you have made a cheap and easy to use Trashtalk of your own. I find the only downside to this method is that you are not able to talk at the same time. Unless you can split the cable and wire in a microphone. I may try it.

Overall the controller is easy to hold, The Mp3 player doesnt obstuct any movement. Its all good

    I was hoping so, but I haven't tried this yet, you see I want this for the opposite reason, I'm making a cable so i can use my turtle beach for music.

    Hmmm, I found all of these parts in the drawer downstairs! MP3 player i got online, the MP3 player can be anything, the cable i think i got from a ipod speaker dock, the little adaptor we have had for years, A Place like Maplins eletronics? or ebay? ooh Radio Shack if your in the states

    lol i just got the parts today i fixed it up but my freinds are saying it sounds like static any help

    The xbox 360 controller wasn't made to stream mp3s to other xbox 360s. it was made to stream voice. so of course the quality will suck. I used to do this on the original xbox.

    A lot of people on instructables aren't, like me for example.

    i tryed it but it wont play over live i sed ipod nd it wont pick up the sound any ideas

    you should get a splitter and hook one up to your microphone and one to your speaker.....press record and viola! ventrilo harassment on xbox live!
