Alright, there is something missing in the question, I was able to hear one sound of the files and the others apply to the question I asked and that is why I am wondering. what is happening!

Here is the code:

#include <SD.h>                      // need to include the SD library
#define SD_ChipSelectPin 4  //using digital pin 4 on arduino nano 328, can use other pins
#include <TMRpcm.h>           //  also need to include this library...
#include <SPI.h>

TMRpcm tmrpcm;   // create an object for use in this sketch

void setup(){

  tmrpcm.speakerPin = 9; //5,6,11 or 46 on Mega, 9 on Uno, Nano, etc

  if (!SD.begin(SD_ChipSelectPin)) {  // see if the card is present and can be initialized:
    Serial.println("SD fail");  
    return;   // don't do anything more if not
  tmrpcm.play("music.mp3"); //the sound file "music" will play each time the arduino powers up, or is reset

void loop(){  


    if(Serial.read() == 'p'){ //send the letter p over the serial monitor to start playback

      /* These are spkean Numbers */

     // tmrpcm.play("1-24bit.wav");
     // tmrpcm.play("1-16bit.wav");
     // tmrpcm.play("200-insane.mp3");   
     // tmrpcm.play("music.mp3")       // Strangely this is the working perfectly with good sound
     // tmrpcm.play("200-standard.mp3");
        tmrpcm.play("200.wav");        // from https://evolution.voxeo.com/library/audio/prompts/numbers/index.jsp


Everything is good when I play this tmrpcm.play("music.mp3"); but the others I hear aliens sounds expect this tmrpcm.play("200.wav"); which I can hear the number two hundred but I feel the sound is 4-bit depth which very noisy. The files used in the code are here

For clarification previously, I thought it was amplifying issues which then I had to used LM386 but the sound was the same noise with tmrpcm.play("200.wav"); and later when I tried this tmrpcm.play("music.mp3"); I was shocked it worked perfectly like what I need it to be! so I was curious I removed the LM386 and played this tmrpcm.play("music.mp3"); again and worked alright just maybe less volume.

  • Should I try to record a sound again with a lower pitch? – Noajm IsMy Name Jun 8 '19 at 19:06
  • you renamed the sample file "music" to "music.mp3"? the library can play only prepared sound files github.com/TMRh20/TMRpcm/wiki – Juraj Jun 8 '19 at 19:49
  • Yes, that is correct and it was working. I made to music.mp3 and music.wav because I just was curious. I was going to rename 200.wav to 200 but did not know how my Mac was not allowing me. – Noajm IsMy Name Jun 8 '19 at 20:20
  • So how I do play spoken numbers from 1 to 100 as prepared sound files? Can I record them? – Noajm IsMy Name Jun 8 '19 at 20:23
  • @Juraj I'm so dumb that link you sent has the solution... I will try it when I go home... sorry I just hate to read so that why I skip links. They are a smaller version of books. – Noajm IsMy Name Jun 8 '19 at 23:39

As @Juraj mentioned it was solved by changing the setting and I was able easily to play the sound when I matched the setting to this file:

So, I could not create one from scratch matches above setting but I was able to convert existing sound through this site which allowed me to convert with desire setting and here finally the exiting sound has matched the setting:
