Update: Boomboxes State Machine

I had some trouble with getting my state machine to work in class. I got home, went straight to Radio Shack and got headphone cable Y-adapter so I could hook up speakers to hear what’s actually being played. I don’t know what exactly went wrong in class but I suspect that the Shuffle’s output might have been different and wasn’t enough to cross the threshold from ‘Listening’ to ‘Audio Detected’

I got it to work simply by rechecking connections and being able to judge what state it should be in with the help of speakers. It goes from ‘listening’ (red LED), to ‘audio detected’ (blue LED), then to ‘party’ mode (dancing LED bar) via potentiometer,  back to ‘audio detected’, then to ‘party’, and once the music is paused back to ‘listening’
