Currently trying to work out how to make the Accelerometer (little red thing) control the play/record functions on the music shield (the black thing).
The problem at the moment is that to access the record function you have to hold down the play/pause button, reset the Arduino and then release the play/pause button. I’m not sure if there is a way of accessing the record feature without resetting the Arduino. I’m scouring the SD library and the Music Shield Wiki trying to find the right connections for me to make.
I’m out of my depth a bit but it’s okay. I will get this model working one way or another. I could do with a pointer.
I considered using servos to trigger the buttons… moving parts, classy. It’s more important that I get to grips with the code as code doesn’t wear out and moving parts do.
