Just to update this, I was able to get some coding help from two people at my school and the project was finished in time. (barely, but that's design school, lol!) Here's a video of it in action if anyone is interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82hQDslM6mg It has a few things I need to change...

Thank you for the kind words. There's a place here at school that has someone with a lot of Arduino experience, I went there yesterday but he wasn't working. I'll try again today and keep my fingers crossed. You would think with how long the Arduino has been out and with how popular it is, there wou...

I used the hookup guide for the unit you recommended, not the MEMS breakout. https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/sound-detector-hookup-guide Regardless, I don't know enough to make it run a NeoPixel ring (which I just today found out requires a separate 5v source) and even though I did successfully...

So I hate it when people ask to be spoon-fed, and I really wanted to figure out the coding necessary for this project, but with the Thanksgiving "break" I had, there was zero time to learn anything. Honestly, after trying to figure out what I'm doing with this, I am overwhelmed. I've been googling "...

You said you want it to be accurate. How are you going to calibrate it? To be more specific, I want it to be *fairly* accurate. Not laboratory-level by any means. I read a post where the person used a dB meter app on their phone to get a baseline and adjusted it from there. Hopefully that will work...

I'm trying to make a device that measures the level of sound in a room fairly accurately and then lights up LEDs if it reaches a predetermined level. Help me shop! So far in my shopping cart I have: Sparkfun RedBoard Arduino Sparkfun MEMS Microphone Breakout INMP401 Neopixel 24 LED ring 9v battery h...
