Introducing the most powerful 3.7v sound board to ever hit the market, the Igniter 3™. Jam-packed with amazing features and powerful hardware, this is the board you’ve been looking for.Compare with other boards
Igniter 3™ comes equipped with an off-CPU 16bit DAC, providing the MaxAmp™ with the cleanest signal yet, while offering the best volume for a 3.7v amp. With true 1/16th increments in volume for both hum and effects, you can have crystal clear, loud, full-speed audio perfectly tuned for any speaker, flat or bass alike. Featuring the improved SaberSense™ motion engine for both attack and parry of clashes, along with the world-renown swing detection, Igniter 3™ is sure to delight anyone building a unique prop.
Igniter 3™ comes equipped with Pixel Support. This allows any WS2812b compatible component strip to be used for the main blade. The best one to use is the IntelliBlade™ which is design and sold right here:
The IntelliBlade™ is design to give the best output and work perfectly with Igniter 3™, and comes in at twice the brightness of any other solution that we have tested.
It is also possible to use the Adafruit skinny style 144 LED/m strips
Or to build a string out of 5mm straw hat LEDs

New Features in Igniter 3™
The Igniter 3™ comes with all the classic features of Igniter 2™, but with a few additional improvements. With Dual Phase™ a new dhumNN.wav can be added in the /hum folder. This will allow the hum to switch when going into the dual phase color for that font. Up to 99 dhum wav files can be added, allowing for a variety of different hums. If a dhum file is not present for a font, it will simply keep the same hum and only switch colors (the legacy behavior).
Multiphase™ has been completely enhanced as well. Now, instead of completely switching into the next font, the new hum and colors will be loaded, but the effects sounds and effect animations from the primary font will be kept. This allows every hum to be used with every other sound effect, allowing the broadest sound set feature on any board! No need to wait for the font to load after switching anymore either; after the color switch the font is ready to use.
