Do you want to do something fun with your hardware? like to play music? then lets make a diy sound equalizer? Then lets get started!
Here I’ll show you how you can make a diy equalizer with a sound sensor and a LinkitONE!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What Do You Need?
1) LinkitONE Board
2) Sound sensor (Any would work)
3) micro-USB cable (for programming)
4) battery pack
5) Grove LED bar
Step 2: Working With Grove LED Bar
In this step we’ll make all the connections.
We’ll use 4 pins for the LED bar. Bar to LinkitONE connections:
VCC – 5V
GND – GND
DATA PIN (white) – 8
CLOCK PIN (yellow) – 9
Connect all these pins as shown in the figure. Then move on to the next step.
Step 3: Attaching the Sensor
Here we’ll attach the sound sensor with the LinkitONE.
Sound Sensor to LinkitONE connections:
VCC – 5V
GND – GND
DATA – A1
Connect the pins as shown in the image of step.
Once this is done, move on the next step of writing some code.
Step 4: Writing Some Code
The code is really simple in this project, we just need to take analog readings from our sensors, which is the intensity of the sound and then we need to present on a bar level using the grove LED bar.
You'll have to download the Grove LED bar library from github here- https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/Grove_LED_Bar
Grove_LED_Bar bar(9, 8, 0);
Now download and burn this code into your board and finalize the design.
Step 5: Finalizing It
Now finalize it by attaching all the wires and checking the connections.
Attach the battery pack as well so it works stand-alone.
Step 6: Testing It Out!
Now test the device out by clapping! You’ll see a change the the grove bar level!
Congrats! You’ve made your own sound equalizer!
