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, I just ordered the circuit boards for the new setup.  These should arrive by the end of the month, then we will get to work!

  • 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

  • Helmut Senft Hi Helmut, thank you for checking in.  With the global shortage of electronic parts (you may have read about it), our sound chip supplier has been very slow in responding to us.  We are still working to get something developed as quickly as possible-- we have not forgotten and will be updating here when there is news to share.
