Adafruit 1790 Music Maker MP3 Shield makes it easy to enable any Arduino-based project with audio capabilities. The Music Maker MP3 Shield is based on VLSI VS1053B Encoding/Decoding (codec) ICm which can decode a wide variety of audio formats. Th Music Maker Shield can be used to record audio in both PCM (WAV) and compressed Ogg Vorbis. All the functionalities are implemented in a lightweight SPI interface so that any Arduino can play audio from an SD card. The 1790 Music Maker MP3 Shield features stereo-audio-out with proper audio filter caps, 7-extra GPIOs, a microSD-card socket, and 3.3V/5.0V level shifting for SD and MP3 chipsets. The Music Maker MP3 Shield works with Arduino Uno, Mega, or Leonardo.
