Stand Alone MP3 Sound Module & 4-Channel Micro-LEC with Machine Gun Effect

Hello Rob,
I have for my dockingbay a Lego Laser Cannon (set 75034) and I'm looking the get light in synconised sound on that.
Therefore I have the gun effect board and the sound module and I thought taht will easily work when take away the button and connect the outlets of gun effect board with sound module . The idea was like that:

Unfortunatelly it doesn't work. Maybe my plan was to simple.

Any idea how I get this work, what I need to order in addition?

thanks, Helmut

  • Hi Helmut, thank you for your message.  In theory this is a good approach, but the issue you are having is caused by the quick pulses of the light not being powerful or long-lasting enough to activate the sound module.

    For your setup, I assume you are looking for something like this: https://youtu.be/0W8jxvJjVvY. But with laser cannon sounds instead of machine gun sounds? We are just beginning work on a modification of the machine gun board to include laser sounds built-in. This might work for your setup-- please let me know what you think. Thank you again.

    Hi Rob,

    yes, that with laser sound is similar to that what I'm looking for.
    I need it for 2-3 laser cannons.
    Means I have to wait until you have your modified board with laser sound ready 🙂

  • Helmut Senft Hi Helmut!  Thank you for the reminder.  I have the boards now, which means I can focus on the sound.  Sorry if we've already discussed this, but is there a specific laser sound that fits with those cannons?  If you have a sample or video you could link to, I can see if we can replicate the sound.  Or we have some general laser sounds we could use, if there is no specific sound you're looking for.

    Thank you.

  • Helmut Senft Hi Helmut, wanted to keep you updated!  I've been working on the sounds and think I'm close.  Looking at the gun in the original photo you sent, I assume there are two lights, one in each barrel?  And do they fire alternately or together?

  • Rob Klingberg Hi Rob, yes there are two lights. They should by chance fire alternately or together (as on the Millenium Falcon sound and light kit)

  • Helmut Senft Understood.  Triggered by the same type of remote control unit?

  • Rob Klingberg I think on/off should be ok, no need for remote control unit
