I saw a tutorial on Youtube that showed how to create a 5.1 surround sound file. Not sure if it actually played the file in anything other than stereo in Audacity. I assumed you burned the file onto a DVD or SDcard.
How do I play a multi channel Audacity file through the computer? I would need a specialty sound card or can I go through HDMI or USB? I've only ever done stereo through the PC built in sound connections.
I've had success with Audacity so far and it's free. I'm pretty cheap when it come to software. I usually try to build my own first before I shell out money on other peoples SW. I guess I should invest in a good home system instead of using the widescreen TVs speakers. But, I'm soooo cheap.
These are great amplifiers but what do I play my files on and how to I get it to the amplifier. Should I put the file on a DVD and use a surround sound DVD player and connect using HDMI or put it on an SD card (is there a sd card surround sound player) and connect using the optical cable or USB?
I would like to make a speaker system where voices seem to move around an area. As people walk up the driveway voices travels around them. Back in the bad old days I had an 8 track player and quadraphonic speaker system that played Dark Side of the Moon. I always loved it. Today I'm thinking a 5.1, 6 channel surround sound setup will work well. I can make a 6 channel file in Audacity but I'm not sure what to play it on. I'm not up to date on the systems. I would like to keep it...
I make sure mine is up and ready for the lights to be on by October 1. I have some big stuff to put up by myself and a lot needs fixing once it's in place so I start putting things in place September 1. If I have a new build, a crypt or animated coffin I build it way early and put it in place to try it out.
There's always something to fix.
You need an inverter.
something like https://www.amazon.com/Inverter-Converts-Continuous-Grounded-Protection/dp/B00W8JCX56
The above is an example not a recommendation. I would never spend that kind of money on an inverter unless it was for my whole house.
I didn't spend any time fine tuning. I just did the TRIG and it works okay with all the different tracks I put through it. I have a lot of people come by to see what I'm adding this year and I just wanted to show it off. I'll do the fine tuning when I build the full prop for it.
I use a MP3 USB Flash Drive Micro SD TF Card Player to play the Christmas songs, POTC ride Baker Parrot and the Enchanted TIKI Room album (1967).
You can get the whole ride, including parrot, here You just have to edit it with Audacity.
Just got my first Squawker. It seems to work okay but goes to sleep pretty quick. That might be because the batteries are low. I'm thinking now that I should get J-Mans board so I can do a quick build on the first one.
I've made 5 modules using these, a teensy, senor and 120V relay. I use a teensy to turn on the power to the mp3 and relay by a motion senor. I use a an mplifier to improve the sound.
This mp3 goes in the a VU level detector to the teensy that drives the servo for the jaw.
I don't like gore...it's too meah ... usually with little story value. I want to entertain the young ones not scare them. That's the reason I stick with Disney themes. I do have some games so there's a bit of interaction with the crowd.
Putting up a Halloween fence this year too. I had over 300 TOTers and it killed my lawn with a few things being accidentally kicked and damaged.
Is it too tacky (not in good taste and decency) to do a fundraiser on facebook? I really have a lot of...
