Now that we have the code for the project, we need to upload it to the Circuit Playground Express.

Let's name our file and download it.

  • Choose a name at the bottom of the page.
  • Then click the pink download button.

A pop up like this should come on your screen after clicking the download button.

Follow the directions and connect your Circuit Playground Express to your computer via the usb cable. Click the reset button once to go into programming mode.

If you previously have CircuitPython running on your board, you may need to press the reset button twice.

Next, look for the file in your downloads folder and drag it onto your CPLAYBOOT drive that should have showed up when you plugged in your board and entered programming mode.

Drag the file onto the CPLAYBOOT drive.

You should now see the CPLAYBOOT disappear.

Go ahead and try out your new Tilt Trumpet!
