    This is a question for the pros:

    How to incorporate custom digital sound into a prop? I know a bit about electronics, but my knowledge is a little rusty. It doesn't extend much beyond the ability to wire a few blinkies... :unsure

    So, what kinds of components are needed, what is the process, what kind of cost is involved, in short: How do you do it?

    Any kind of explanations, tips, links to web ressources etc. are appreciated.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Short answer, look for a sound kit. They make hobby kits that will let you store a short sound and then replay it. Don't know what stores you have in Germany, I know Dick Smith in Australia and Radio Shack in the US. If you have a store like either of them I would try there.

    Check www.conrad.de and do a search for "soundmodul".

    They have several pre-built modules and a few kits.

    Yes, I've seen those, but they lack certain features or at least I don't know if they have the features I want.

    For example continuous play of the sound sample as long as the trigger is pressed and immediate stop when it is released.

    Also: The sound samples would have to be recorded with a microphone which decreases the sound quality, doesn't it? I'd like to record the sound directly to the chip.

    And lastly: Are these modules loud enough?
