I was wondering if someone can help me out here.

I want to build a circuit that will play ramdom sounds that I can put
onto a chip from my pc.

I want a simple push button control....something like one of those
singing fish but for a different purpose.

I would like to have say 10 or more sound clips that it could play
randomly with the push of a button.
Or if possible and not to complicated multiple buttons for different
clips.

Can someone point me in the right direction here...book, website,
company that sells a kit?
What kind of a chip is normally used to hold the sounds for something
like this...how would I program it?

Looking for a way to do this and keep it small and not really
expensive.
I figure if that make greeting cards that play music and the singing
fish is not that expensive then I should be abe to make something like
this relatively small and cheap.

Thanks for any help!!

No, this has to be standalone and cheap. I was thinking something that
can be made for less then $15 I don't want it to be re-programmable. One time setup and that is all. I have a few projects I want to put into my gameroom and have certain sounds play if a lever is pushed or a button is pressed. Is something like this possible in the price range I mention?

\$24.88

And I am sure that looking at e-bay will give you a price under the 15
USD.

I am afraid that making yourself such a device will get you less quality
for more or same amount of money.

Radio Shack used to sell a voice recorder chip. It was cheap and I think it
will do what you want. They didn't make the chip, so you should still be
able to find it (or something similar).

on-chip.

The WINBOND chips are probably what you are talking about. You can still
get them at www.futurlec.com, in DIP.

the ISD1110P gives you 10 seconds of recording time.

The scary-terry link above is more what I am looking for.
With one possible advancement ....multiple sounds on 1 chip that will
play at random or in sequence with multiple button pushes.

I am afraid that making yourself such a device will get you less quality
for more or same amount of money.

Your probably right but I would still like to try and make it myself.
I don't need cd quality sound for what I am doing.

Anyway, I will give it a shot.

Thanks for the help.
