does this help you DIYers?

…Does what? >.>

weird… the site wont let web addresses be the first line…

but the Pi just got really interesting

I wonder If the audio will be improved, free win10 makes it interesting, I’ll probably get one in a few months.

@darenager I didn’t hear any mention of improved audio. My experiences with the B+ left me with the feeling that doing audio on these is not a great idea in that they just don’t seem to care about it.

I might build a homebrew oplab (sans din sockets) type thing + midi sequencer with my B+. If I don’t do that I will never use it for anything. I wish someone would do an sbc meant for audio. For me that means having analogue gpio in addition to quality audio in/out.

If you have an USB soundcard with no purpose there is some interesting stuff out there. One called piana that seems pretty decent. Justice found this site

^ that’s true, but compatibility and reliability isn’t super great, and it bulks things up too much for me. Even the cards built for the pi seemed unreliable (or lacked input) from what I’d read. I decided it wasn’t worth it… but maybe I should check again to see if any of these have improved.

you must have missed us talking about the Axoloti in the “recent purchase” thread @anomalous =/

180MHz M4, 256KB SRAM, 1MB of flash RAM. You program it similarly to max/pd/patchblocks. It has 24-bit stereo input and output, MIDI DIN In/Out, USB Host… they were 60 EUR each on indiegogo. It can be programmed to be controlled from a MIDI controller, and/or has a bunch of solder pads for controls.

Maybe not 100% what you’re looking for, but it seems pretty close.

@KrisM Yeah I did miss that. It seems like a pretty good fit overall on the hardware side. If I can reprogram it I’m sold. If I can’t I might pick it up anyway if the gui is entirely non-essential.

The thing about sampling is I would very much need to write my own code to be happy with it. I have workflow needs in this area.

they’re completely re-programmable, within the constraints of the software editor, of course.

Nothing about recording/sampling right now, but you could use another microcontroller board or something and then shuttle audio through the Axoloti as an FX unit, use as oscillators, or whatever.

I mean reprogramming it without the editor. Seems like it’s just emit & compile C++ then upload the binary.

If I can write the code myself then I can write the sampler (or some workflow features I want) myself. As for the GUI, it doesn’t seem to let you do that from what I’ve seen.

they really should just make max/msp into something like this. download/up? your patch to hardware.

also for those interested:

Nice @dimi3


Now I just need to do a little research

Whatever happened to the backup thingamajig guy, is he still around?

Not sure if he is still here, but here is his Github project:

luck you!

seq24 is an awesome little sequencer that I use with my op-1/raspi combo. I got the first model b but I will get the new one for sure! I hope I can use the non sequencer and maybe few audio tracks with the new raspi.

there it is
