that sounds nice: pisound
Or buy 16 Pi zero for the same price?
any technology distinguishable from magic
is insufficiently advanced.
It does sound nice, quite literally. The sound performance is very good and it greatly decreases latency. Which can really help with Pd on the Pi. The idea for “the button” is quite neat. Haven’t used a USB key to load patches but that’s also a neat idea.
Though Pd runs very smoothly on it, MODEP has become my favourite dimension of this HAT. It’s a way to host LV2 plugins and arrange them on pedalboards using patch cords (sounds familiar?). The interface (MOD UI) is through a web server. So you can use any device running a browser to change pedalboards. Tweakings knobs and such doesn’t work well on iOS, but it’s still really useful to run the device headless and have an iPad to change your “patches”.
Sure, it’s not the cheapest device around. Investing quite. bit of time, someone with soldering and coding skills can make a version of this with less money. Same thing can be said about the Organelle, the MOD Duo, etc.
But, as an integrated solution, Blokas pisound is really very neat.
I just got one and set it up and i can also confirm that it sounds pretty brilliant, i moved everything up to 96khz and it's doing really well only when i moved up to 192 did i start to get artifiacts
