Does any members have resources they are willing to shared relating to JR6001 Serial MP3 Custom Programmable Sound Recorder Module?
I use Arduino’s microcontrollers in animation projects for model railroad layouts. Some of the animation projects include sound. I’m working to replace the DFPlayer Mini MP3 Player Audio Voice Module Board I currently use for sound generation, with a JR6001 Serial MP3 Custom Programmable Sound Recorder Module board.
The DFModules require memory cards and the replacement modules don’t. Smaller memory cards are harder to come by as well as increasing my cost. Using 16G cards for less than 100Meg of audio files is inefficient.
In my enthusiasm, I made an online purchased of a few JR6001 modules without doing more extensive research. My initial research provided documents that was encouraging. I now discover there is little vendor support and searches for the module don’t generate usable results. I’m looking to connect the module to Arduino Nano’s. The serial communication protocol details that I have found for the module is limited. There doesn’t appear to be a library that supports this particular device.
I’m hoping the support for the DFROBOT voice module https://www.dfrobot.com/product-1741.html might provide some insight. They provide considerable information on serial communication. I should have purchased their modules instead of the much cheaper alternate model. I never seem to learn that lesson that cheap is just as good. Buyer be ware!
I have limited experience using Arduino serial protocols. I’m thinking of connecting two Nano’s together over serial to become more familiar with the protocols. I have to do some pin soldering on the voice modules so I can breadboard them for testing. My first attempt will be using the DFROBOT information. It seems to be the most comprehensive.
I was looking for an Arduino library that would enable both selections and playing of an MP3 file communicated to the module. I've witnessed on this site obscure questions be asked through members posts and someone having an answer. That knowledge potential just blows me away. I’m figuring maybe someone is just a cheap as me and hoed a row of knowledge to get this device working they might be willing to share.
