Using it as a recording player¶
To use the controller as an autonomous player you must first generate the recording in ProtoPixel create. Refer to Recording Output for a single SD controller to learn about the recording process.
After placing the recording on the SD card, it is just a matter of editing the file
CONFIG.TXT. When configured, the controller will start playing the recording immediately after receiving power.
The following options are available in the configuration file:
||Enabling player functionality (default: disabled)|
||Enabling looping over the list of recordings (default: disabled)|
Then a list of the recording files with their configurations follows. The configuration is a number, the first digit representing if ths recording should loop or not:
0 for not looping,
1 for looping. In this controller all other digits are ignored.
See this example:
# We enable playback :PlayFile 1 # We disable looping the list :PlaySDSequence 0 # Following, the list of recording files # This is file "recording1". As we deactivate looping, # after playing it, it will play the next one recording1 0 # This is file "recording2". As we activate looping, # after playing it, it will play again and again recording2 1 # This recording is never reached, # because recording2 is looping recording3 0
