BLEEP BLOOP

Post by theverant » Tue Aug 20, 2013 11:59 am

Anyone know how to change the annoyingly loud clicky/pop/bleep sound that RFirmware makes whenever you use the LCD menu?

It makes me angry and feeling kind of stabby. :/

Take a needle, kill the tiny speaker....

Actually, that's a page from my past when a crazy kid I knew (not me) would go around to any speaker he saw and would poke the tweeter with a needle.

Are you willing to reprogram? There's no config for it from what I can see.

In firmware you have to change
#define FEATURE_BEEPER true
to
#define FEATURE_BEEPER false
in configuration.h

if you do a search for the word sound it takes you right to section, that word is only used once in the config file.

If you want to change the tone, look just slightly further down in Configuration.h. You can change the value of BEEPER_SHORT_SEQUENCE to change the sound.

What's more, you can test different sounds by sending a magic G-code. My printer is in the middle of a long job, so I can't test this, but I think the command is "M120 S<delay> P<repetitions>". To generate the normal beep, you'd send "M120 S2 P2".

I would expect parameters something like 5, 1 to be quieter than the current chirp. I'll try it when this print job finishes.

Yes, M120 emits a tick. To my damaged ears, parameters 1, 1 makes the quietest tick.

So try this on for size.

Code: Select all

M120 S1 P1

If you like it, edit Configuration.h.

Code: Select all

#define BEEPER_SHORT_SEQUENCE 1,  1
