Arduino Music Box Inside a Vintage Transistor Radio

Introduction: Arduino Music Box Inside a Vintage Transistor Radio

Here are some of my music boxes housed in old transistor radios and speakers. I used a waveshield and and an arduino pro mini. One knob controls volume and one switches the tracks. There are 5 songs of original ambient music I made with vibraphone loops and a bunch of delay plugins in Live. The tracks are between 5 and 10 minutes long and loop until a new track is selected.

The music is composed so that you can have as many boxes playing at once as you like and the music will always sound good no matter how or when the tracks are switched on individual boxes.

Here's a recording of 3 of the boxes playing simultaneously:
