LED trigger to picaxe signal
September 1, 2012
I found a new sound sampler module for my yellow drum machine. The problem I have right now is that the switch to operate and trigger the playback was a motion sensor. Essentially a LED in a thin tube.
I want to change that so that I can trigger that function from the Picaxe output.
I tried a few directconnections on a solderless bread board and was able to trigger it accurately by just touching one of the LED + wire to the 5v powerbus on my board but when I plug it on the Picaxe board I get immediate triggering when I switch the board on and then nothing.
What am I doing wrong and more importantly, how do I make it right?
