Load Some Sounds

We put together a selection of sound clips that correspond to the silhouette stencils that we made. If you would like to learn how to create your own sound clips, see the Hacking Your Kit section.

Add Sounds to the Card

Download the sound clips file:

Extract the files.

Extract files

Windows: Right-click on the .zip file and select "Extract All" or "Extract Here"

Double-click on each of the sound clips to listen to them. The names were kept short (4 characters) to help the LilyPad MP3 board read them. For reference:

Using a micro SD card reader, insert the card into your computer. Choose the 2 sound clips you want to have played and copy them to the SD card.

Copying sound clips

This part is important! You need to rename the two sound clips and add a number in front of them. For the silhouette connected to the T1 on the LilyPad MP3 board, add a '1' in front of the name of the clip you want associated with it. For the silhouette connected to T4, add a '2' in front of the filename.

Adding prefix numbers

Add '1' and '2' to the front of the sound clip filenames to associate them with the silhouettes on the page
