>So are you also working on your own afterlife electronics based off Gacabe’s set up?
Kind of. I'm doing a 3d printed pack build, not going specifically for Afterlife, but I prefer the Spinning Cyclotron Effect and sounds.
I am using Cagabe's setup with One Nano each controlling the Powercell lights and Cyclotron, and the soundboard being responsible for startup sound and hum. I changed the amp setup a bit because the Pyle's cost.
As far as code goes, The Powercell is using a snippet from CountDeMonet's Spirit Minimal
, because I couldn't, for the life of me, get a decent startup sequence coded. The Cyclotron is using code by Cfunseth
, because I liked the ramp-up feature.
I was going to have a third ardiono handle all the timing - powering it on by the crank generator switch, then trigger the startup sound, then the hum on the board when the Powercell switch was git, then stop the hum and play a shutdown sound, but since there's no shutdown sound, I just made a 20 min loop of the startup and the hum. Given the size of the files, that's about as long as I could get into the 16MB flash on the card. Putting everything on one common switch worked in my proof-of -concept test, so I think it'll be good in the pack.
The Pack's pretty much completed; I need to fill and sand a bunch, then as soon as the weather warms up, paint!
Is yours still in the planning stages or have you started?
