Musicians looking for an affordable way to help create music may be interested in the Raspberry Pi mini PC and its Pisound HAT which transforms your Pocket PC into a complete audio workstation.
Watch the videos below to learn more about the capabilities of the Pisound HAT which has been created by Blokas and has this week been featured on the official Raspberry Pi website where Jonic takes you through a brief tutorial on how the Pisound can be used.
pisound is an ultra-low latency high-quality soundcard and MIDI interface specially designed for Raspberry Pi pocket computers. Equipped with 192kHz 24-bit Stereo Input and Output driven by the legendary Burr-Brown chips, DIN-5 MIDI Input and Output ports, user-customizable button and bundled software tools, this little board will bring your audio projects to a whole new level!
pisound allows you to connect a huge variety of different types of audio-related gear. Thanks to wide-range gain control, you can connect audio sources ranging from your bass guitar to a CD player or your modular synth. Using Stereo Output you can hook pisound to any mixer, speakers or just plug in your headphones.
For MIDI connectivity you also have a lot of options – MIDI In/Out through on-board DIN-5 sockets, USB-MIDI via Pi’s USB ports or even WiFi-MIDI! When we were designing pisound one of the main goals was to empower everyone to use pisound and Raspberry Pi in headless mode – without an external monitor, keyboard or mouse. As it turns out, one button is all you need to achieve this and we call it The Button.
