There is no topic in here about this yet, so now there is. I just bought a Rasberry Pi 4 in a fit of pique during the Amazon Prime days as it was on sale. I have always wanted one because of the huge variety of things you can do, but I never really dove into the music angle until I had clicked the buy-now button. Lo and behold, there are a shed-load of options for using Pi in your studio, so I thought it was high time to 1. Make a list of such things, and 2. document my journey through the world of Pi in music, and encourage others to jump in with their experiences.
So here is a list I will try to dutifully maintain, of various things you can do with Pi in your studio.
- use it as a midi host
- create a synth/effect monster via Zynthian
- install Patchbox OS
install Sunvox over linux.
…install any number of other synths, primarily over linux, like Qsynth
Anyone else doing/have done/want to do stuff with a Pi? Please share your experiences.
