The MP3 player Bit allows you to play your very own MP3 files using littleBits. Sending a signal to the MP3 player can make it work as a media player, sampler, or looper. Just load the MP3 files you want onto the provided SD card and you'll have music and sound effects in your next littleBits invention in no time.
The MP3 player reads MP3 files off of the SD card that is underneath the Bit. To choose the order that files are played in, simply rename the MP3 file so that it has a number in front of the file name. The MP3 player will then play your MP3 tracks in numerical order.

Use the 'back' and 'forward' buttons to switch between tracks on the MP3 player. If you are in the middle of a song, double click the 'back' button to go to the previous track. Playback is started by sending a pulse or latch through the input signal line to the Bit. The behavior of playback thereafter depends on which of the 4 modes is selected.
