In the last Blog, I have shown how to use the Synthesizer class. I wanted to verify the audio quality issue by sending the output to Bluetooth

Here is the sketch. I just added a callback method to feed the bluetooth source:

Arduino Sketch

#define USE_MIDI
#include "BluetoothA2DPSource.h"
#include "AudioTools.h"
#include "AudioTools/Synthesizer.h"
#include "AudioLibs/AudioKit.h"

BluetoothA2DPSource a2dp_source;

AudioKitStream kit;
Synthesizer synthesizer;
GeneratedSoundStream<int16_t> in(synthesizer); 
SynthesizerKey keys[] = {{PIN_KEY1, N_C3},{PIN_KEY2, N_D3},{PIN_KEY3, N_E3},{PIN_KEY4, N_F3},{PIN_KEY5, N_G3},{PIN_KEY6, N_A3},{0,0}};

int32_t get_sound_data(Frame *data, int32_t len) {
  int16_t sample = synthesizer.readSamples((int16_t(*)[2])data,len);
  delay(1);
  return len;
}

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(115200);
  AudioLogger::instance().begin(Serial,AudioLogger::Info);

  // setup synthezizer keys
  synthesizer.setKeys(kit.audioActions(), keys, AudioActions::ActiveLow);
  synthesizer.setMidiName("AudioKit Synthesizer");

  // define generated audio format
  auto cfg = in.defaultConfig();
  cfg.channels = 2;
  cfg.sample_rate = 44100;
  in.begin(cfg);

  a2dp_source.start("LEXON MINO L", get_sound_data);  
  a2dp_source.set_volume(20); 
}

void loop() {
  kit.processActions();
  delay(1);
}

I still need the AudioKitStream class, but just to handle the keys. In the get_sound_data callback method we can just forward the call to the synthezizer to provide the data. The delay(1) are necessary to avoid any errors from the Watchdog…

Unfortunately I can confirm the issue with the polyphoinc sound generation: So at least I have narrowed down the source of the problem.
There is also a lag between the key press and the audible sound, which if from my feeling a little bit too high to be practically useful!

Source Code

The (potentially updated) source code can be found in the samples directory.

Thansk for the answer. This order work:

#include “BluetoothA2DPSource.h”
#include “AudioTools.h”
#include “AudioLibs/AudioKit.h”

Hi,

this sketch does not work:
##################################################
#include “AudioTools.h”
#include “AudioLibs/AudioKit.h”
#include “BluetoothA2DPSource.h”

void setup() {

}

void loop() {
// put your main code here, to run repeatedly:

}

###############################################
Error:
Arduino/libraries/ESP32-A2DP/src/VolumeControl.h:66:37: error: reference to ‘VolumeControl’ is ambiguous

Any hint to solve that problem?

Best regards
herman

    Just use the updated source code indicated in the link indicated under Source Code.
    Note: the sequence of imports is important.
