Tutorial – Star Wars Theme on a Buzzer

Tutorial – Star Wars Theme on a Buzzer

In this tutorial we will learn how to use a Buzzer with Arduino. We will learn this by playing one of the most known Movie Theme…Star Wars Theme!!

Of course all of you have listened this music. Now we will play it with an Arduino Board.

Playing Star Wars Theme on Arduino

What we need?

We just need:

  • Arduino Board
  • Buzzer

Schematics

Sketch

//initialize all the notes
const int c = 261;
const int d = 294;
const int e = 329;
const int f = 349;
const int g = 391;
const int gS = 415;
const int a = 440;
const int aS = 455;
const int b = 466;
const int cH = 523;
const int cSH = 554;
const int dH = 587;
const int dSH = 622;
const int eH = 659;
const int fH = 698;
const int fSH = 740;
const int gH = 784;
const int gSH = 830;
const int aH = 880;
 
const int buzzerPin = 6;
 
int counter = 0;
 
void setup()
{
  //Setup pin modes
  pinMode(buzzerPin, OUTPUT);
}
 
void loop()
{
  //Play first section
  firstSection();
 
  //Play second section
  secondSection();
 
  //Variant 1
  beep(f, 250);  
  beep(gS, 500);  
  beep(f, 350);  
  beep(a, 125);
  beep(cH, 500);
  beep(a, 375);  
  beep(cH, 125);
  beep(eH, 650);
 
  delay(500);
 
  //Repeat second section
  secondSection();
 
  //Variant 2
  beep(f, 250);  
  beep(gS, 500);  
  beep(f, 375);  
  beep(cH, 125);
  beep(a, 500);  
  beep(f, 375);  
  beep(cH, 125);
  beep(a, 650);  
 
  delay(650);
}
 
void beep(int note, int duration)
{
  //Play tone on buzzerPin
  tone(buzzerPin, note, duration);

  delay(duration); 
 
  //Stop tone on buzzerPin
  noTone(buzzerPin);
 
  delay(50);
 
  //Increment counter
  counter++;
}
 
void firstSection()
{
  beep(a, 500);
  beep(a, 500);    
  beep(a, 500);
  beep(f, 350);
  beep(cH, 150);  
  beep(a, 500);
  beep(f, 350);
  beep(cH, 150);
  beep(a, 650);
 
  delay(500);
 
  beep(eH, 500);
  beep(eH, 500);
  beep(eH, 500);  
  beep(fH, 350);
  beep(cH, 150);
  beep(gS, 500);
  beep(f, 350);
  beep(cH, 150);
  beep(a, 650);
 
  delay(500);
}
 
void secondSection()
{
  beep(aH, 500);
  beep(a, 300);
  beep(a, 150);
  beep(aH, 500);
  beep(gSH, 325);
  beep(gH, 175);
  beep(fSH, 125);
  beep(fH, 125);    
  beep(fSH, 250);
 
  delay(325);
 
  beep(aS, 250);
  beep(dSH, 500);
  beep(dH, 325);  
  beep(cSH, 175);  
  beep(cH, 125);  
  beep(b, 125);  
  beep(cH, 250);  
 
  delay(350);
}

I took part of the code from Arduino Project Hub.

I hope that now you know how to use a Buzzer with Arduino!
