No I haven't bought one of the mini SD-Player boards ... YET.
( mini SD-Player board )
I'm still to get one of the 'Bluetooth' sound receiving boards as well.
( 'Bluetooth' sound receiving board, with built-in amplifier )
But I did do a little bit of research on the mini SD-Player board though.
The schematics I found, I Posted on >> THE REPLICANT << Thread.
SD-Player Board ... Schematics & Research
( some of Juergens seriously C L steampunk DIY Victorian $4!7 ! )
I know your transmitters have some extra ^^ switches I think, sprung toggles ?
Each 1 potentially sending some kind of 'pulse' to the R.C. receiver I believe.
So yes, in theory, I guess one of these switches could 'pulse' the SD-player board, through it's 'tracks'.
( More steampunk brass & batteries, from Dr. Sartorius, built in The Mad Professors lab. ! )
Interesting sound possibilities, like . . .
Loco - Clanking sound.
Cat - Meeyowing !
Emilia - "Nearly at the station"
Loco - Hooter
Cat - More Meeyowing
Emilia - "Out the way $4!7 for brains !"
The options on the SD-Player board, are there for either built in amplifier, or line-level signal OUT to a separate amplifier.
Whether the 'pulse' from your transmitter, going to the receiver, is compatible with the SD-player board, I don't know.
I also suddenly realized, that I guess because your 'Phoenix' sound board is NOT in the loco ...
... but in your 'box of tricks', I guess you can use the same 'Phoenix' board for more than 1 loco.
( Juergens 'Box Of Tricks' ... Built by Dr. Sartorius, in The Mad Professors lab ! )
I think with some nice sound-samples, loaded as a series of 'tracks' ...
... an interesting & seemingly random & non-repetitive sound sequence could be heard.
It's good that there is hopefully a bit of spare space in the big 7/8ths locos to fit all this in.
But I guess that space could still fill up pretty fast.
It is a pretty good solution altogether though, for the application of sound to an R.C. loco ...
... which as I understand it, is normally pretty difficult, or impossible ?? ...
... unless you are using the 'Tam Valley' DCC R.C. system.
Pioneering stuff !!
