Arduino controlled bass mid treble and input selector with tda7419

If you are looking to control your audio with arduino, here’s it is. It uses TDA7419 chip which has a lot of features for controlling your audio. It has 4 input selector, bass control, mid control, treble control, loudness control and a built-in 7 band spectrum analyzer.

I always wanted to control my audio using arduino and it took me sometime to figure out. I started with Alexan kit using LC75341  chip but the sound quality did not satisfy me. It only has bass and treble control and no control for the frequency and Q factor.

Then I found the TDA7419 and use it with nodemcu with an LCD. But unfortunately I was not able to output a sound for some reason I am not sure. I just thought I got a defective part. fast forward 2 years later, I was able to start again with this project and bought the chip from a separate supplier. This time I used and arduino nano and a 1602 LCD.

But unfortunately I was not able to get the sound output again so I thought it is impossible to have a bad part again twice. This should something to do with my code. The datasheet of TDA7419 is incomplete. There are many functions there that had no explanation what it is for. I read the datasheet again and again and hooray! I found a clue for why I am not getting an output. In section 4.3.1 of the datasheet it says “it is not useful to start a new AutoZero action because no new source is selected and an undesired mute would appear at the outputs.

After hours of tweaking the code, I was now able to make it work! The code can be downloaded on the download page. Only basic feature is available at the moment and these are:

  • input selection
  • bass control
  • mid control
  • treble control
  • spectrum analyzer

I am using a library from and all the feature of the chip is supported by this library. So it will be easy for you to add those features.

This project is consists of 2 boards, the control board has the arduino nano, 1602 LCD and a rotary encoder switch.

Update: April 20, 2021 – the code only features basic functions below:

  • input selection
  • bass control
  • mid control
  • treble control
  • spectrum analyzer display

I will update this page when new features have been added to the code. So please subscribe to our youtube channel.
