Eli and I realized how much Sid loved vinyl and wanted to incorporate it into our final project. With this in mind we created All of the Lights a system that transmit a signal from a record player over Bluetooth, and then visualizes the signal by passing it through high and low pass filters.
Hardware We used a Technics direct drive record player, and a phono pre-amp. With these two devices we are able to take acquire a "line-in" ready signal. This signal can either be hardwired or sent with Bluetooth to high and low pass filters. These filters each got the same signal and separated the high and low frequencies which were then displayed on a two separate LED strips.
Software With the introduction of the Bluetooth, Arduino code had to be written. We found that music is typically transmitted at 703,000 bits per second so we set the BTSerial.Begin to 706000. This allowed us to attempt to reach the speed that the record player was gather information.
For the first deadline we want to secure a signal from the record player, and visualize with our filter.
For the second deadline we want to transit the signal with Bluetooth.
