Raspberry Pi Synthesizer (Sneak Preview)
An experimental project is in the works for students learning the basics of computer science, with real implications for the electronic music making world. A small 700 MHz processor powers a tiny computer – charmingly named the “Raspberry Pi”. So far, one developer has used it to create the “Pi Synth” which allows users to manipulate the outputted sound of a single-oscillator synth frequency by playing only with the pitch, phase, and cycling properties. The Raspberry Pi was designed to be experimented with and adapted and we hope to see other uses of it available soon.
