Help needed for electronics A2 coursework Watch

Report Thread starter 3 years ago
Hi I'm starting my electronics coursework for A2 and i;m making a metronome for my project. It involves using a micro controller which then a decoder is connected to it which is further connected to a seven segment display. The idea is that when you press a switch 2 LED's will flash alternatively at a certain tempo and i have other switches which when pressed it will do the same thing but flash at a different tempo acting like a metronome.
Whilst the LED's flash i also have a speaker which gives out 2 frequency's which will be at the same tempo as the LED's which will change tempo when another switch is pressed. There are two relaxation oscillators used to produce the 2 frequency's for the sounds which are connect through a logic subsystem and to an driver which connects to the speaker.
So what i need help is how i actually code it? As there are different switches and how do i organize the sequence. I only know basic programming which in my class we use PICAXE. Also how do i make the frequency sounds on the relaxation Oscillator.
If you could help it would be much appreciated thank you
