This is the small raspberry PI Computer, which is nerdy as hell, but a very nice chance to get even a synth to work with this project – didn’t know it was fast enough so – here’s a demo of it
strange, that guy wrote on his Remote XL instead of using the display, but he’s more clever than I am, since he knows how to handle this:
first session with the Raspberry Pi running Pure Data. I’m running Pd 0.44 (test version) with „-nogui -noadc -alsa“ flags + a budget USB audio device, and a Novation ReMOTE ZeroSL as the midi device. Raspberry Pi OS is Raspbian “wheezy.” Note, I’m running from the command line, not from inside the X window system (performance with GUI seems more likely to glitch, at least with my first tests). I did not try headphone jack for audio given initial reports were not good (and presently I’m unable to test HDMI audio).
Pd 0.44 here: pure-data.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb-index.cgi
I used notes from Miller Puckette sent to the Pd-list (check September 8 & 9, 2012) and some info. fromlog.liminastudio.com/programming/running-puredata-on-the-raspberry-pi to get things going.
DR-OM Pd patch from protoDROM version (Processing+ libPd) available at github.com/s3g/protodrom
btw: did you have a look at this nice idea of multiple core computing?http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ada … r-everyone
it tells about a very interesting (for developers and everyone interested – a new platform to work on including AUDIO) called Parallella which seems to also be capable to have multiple processors sharing audio latency free or multithreaded to those cores – you may know, that this is not as simple with AU/VST on any OS today, so these guys are doing a cool job.
