Installing software

To get started with the Music Maker, you'll need to control the built-in VS1053 chip.

So download the Adafruit VS1053 Library:

Uncompress the zip file and remove the folder inide. Rename it Adafruit_VS1053 and make sure you see Adafruit_VS1053.cpp and Adafruit_VS1053.h inside. Copy the folder to the Libraries folder inside your Arduino Sketchbook folder. For more details on how to install Arduino libraries, check out our detailed tutorial using the link below:
