i also have a plain raspberri pi 4 + HiFiBerry DAC thing with a case that i've been messing with because arm64 and more memory, and it is turning out nicelyyyyy. added a fan to the case and overclocked the processor. tbh i just LOVE having something that sounds almost exactly like a real grand piano, have had to take off my headphones to check that my amp is not on accidentally because it ~feels~ real
Adjusting 5 billion settings so the piano sounds amazing on a tiny amp, and now this is one of my horcruxes. I fucking love open source hardware
zynthian is fabulous and fully open source, based on readily available parts (unless you want one of their custom enclosures). I got a used one on reverb, which I might try to upgrade to raspberry pi 4. technology, bruh!!
anyway it's modular enough that i'll swap out pieces rather than being stuck to one whole device, and that's great. Pianoteq modelling sounds so good that when I plug it in to my fully weighted keyboard, it feels like an actual real piano
so, what i've landed on is: 49 key midi controller, Zynthian (zynthian.org) with Pianoteq, and a portable Yamaha speaker-- all less than 20 pounds
A few months back, I started telling people I'm working on becoming a bike and electronics YouTuber.
Today, I'm pleased to share with you my first big video.
Join me on a super fun bike ride as we visit and learn about The Wind Harp in South SF!
ordered one of these things because i'm curious-- and would like to have some physical device to store various critical passwords on as extra redundancy
Trimet posted some incredible vibes then had the incredible presence of mind to release an hour version
I just recently realised, that proprietary social networks are not social networks but entertainment networks. That's why at least my friends have a hard time switching to mastodon or pixelfed. People expect to be highly entertained the first second they enter the network and kept that way all the time. Being confronted with a network that is stripped from all these addictive tools is a massive cultural clash.
