PLAY sounds at the same time with MP3 Shield

by kelvin16 on Tue Sep 10, 2019 11:36 am

Hi, I want to know if the Adafruit "Music Maker" MP3 Shield for Arduino can play sounds at the same time or what shield can do that. I want to build a piano, then, I need can press 2, 3 or more keys at the same time. I need to use threads or something like that with Arduino?

Thanks!

The VS1053 sound chip on the board cannot play multiple MP3 tracks at the same time. But it is capable of playing polyphonic MIDI which would be appropriate for an instrument like a piano.

See the data sheet for details: https://cdn-shop.adafruit.com/datasheets/vs1053.pdf
