I am working on a python version that is similar. I built a near clone of the OctoBanger using a Teensy 4.1. It plays the ambient and scare without a MP3 player board. It can do PWM and servos too. Just got the display of the scare audio working today.

Hi all, I'm new to the prop automation game and have a few questions. I love the idea of the 8 relay controller and have most of the supplies in my card on Amazon. I am hoping someone can show me some pics or a diagram for the 8 channel hooked up and working.

I am trying to set something up for a non-profit organization that has a fright night every year as their major fundraiser and I would like to do something different this year.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. I love that everyone is so helpful to everyone else, you don't see that very often in forums. Great job everyone.

Here's a pic of my Octo's guts. The Uno switches 8 SSRs, which power the 8 outlets.
Channels 1-4 are powered from one line input, and 5-8 from another. I needed two separate circuits as I have four Jacob's Ladders plus motors and lights which draw too much current to run on just one circuit.
Cheers!

Hello, I am super new to using the arduino (like never used it), I just ordered all my parts and I’m waiting on all of them to arrive. I just discovered that within the past few days the buttonbanger site is no longer available. Will this be permanent? Guess I jumped on the bandwagon a little too late :-(

Thanks for the heads up- I spent some time on the phone with Godaddy and got the site issue sorted out (they changed something with hosting permissions). FYI, Godaddy's on-hold music will drive you mad!

Thanks, Mike
