I'm looking for a circuit that will do the following. It will plug into a headphone jack and will light up an LED when any audio signal is outputted. The brightness of the LED does not vary depending on the strength of the audio output or the volume of the device, it will always be on when there is any audio signal and off when there isn't. I will be sending it short pulses of audio, basically to make it blink at a certain intervals. The specs of the LED are: 1.2VDC 29mA. I'd like to try and use the smallest size battery as possible.
I've done a lot of circuit building, but not much design, so I would consider myself a bit of a newbie. Any help?
