    Hello Sam, Currently we don’t have any resources for the PICAXE blockly program you are using. However I have looked into this and it appears that PICAXE do state in the following guide ways of using some functions to make a tune/song, http://www.picaxe.com/docs/picaxe_manual5.pdf page 14 and 15.

    The length of time the tune will be played for will depend upon a number of factors. As the tune is coded up as a series of notes and durations, this code is then stored to the microcontroller along with additional code which the microcontroller needs. Since there are different capacities of microcontroller and it is not easy to determine what other code might be being stored, detailing how long the music will play for is not straight forward. It is possible that you may have serval minutes if not tens of minutes of play time, but without knowing what else the processor program memory has to store it is very hard to say. We also don’t have any other kits which would be suitable.

    There could be a few reasons why the circuit isn’t working when the switch is pressed, I would suggest checking IC1 pin 4 for dry joints, input1 and switch connections for dry joints and the switch is connected to input 1 and not input 2. If you are still having issues contact us via support@kitronik.co.uk

    There could be a few issues as to why you are unable to detect the IC on the kit. It would be advisable to check all solder joints and possible re-heat them to ensure they are connected. The kit also needs to be connected to a power source so the IC has power while it is connected to the PC.

    The music box wouldn’t be a suitable kit for this project, you would be better using an amplifier kit and using an MP3 player or a similar device to hold the music/speech file.

    We currently don’t have any audio files that we can send across as a sample for this kit.

    The switch would be fine being changed to a standard on/off switch, however the program may have to be adapted to loop the program while the switch is on.
