Blokas pisound Turns Your Raspberry Pi Into a Complete Audio Workstation

An Audio and MIDI Interface for your Rasberry Pi      15/03/17

Blokas has introduced pisound – an Audio & MIDI interface for the Raspberry Pi pocket computer platform.

The Raspberry Pi has been around for number of years, giving a low cost computing solution for many different applications. We use one here in the office.

On its surface pisound is the first all around solution for your Raspberry Pi based audio projects Equipped with Hi-Fi stereo input and output, classic MIDI In and Out ports, user-customizable button and bundled software tools.

Being super simple to use, pisound mounts directly onto the Raspberry Pi via its 40-pin header, with no additonal power, cables soldering or anything... All you need to do once the Pi boots, is connect to the internet and enter a few commands in a terminal widow.

It can be used with a massive range of different Audio and MIDI hardware. Thanks to the design of stereo input with wide-range gain control, you can connect audio sources ranging from your bass guitar to a CD player or your modular synth. Volume and Gain levels can be controlled using on-board knobs. MIDI In/Out through on-board DIN-5 sockets, USB-MIDI via Pi's USB ports or even WiFi-MIDI are all included too. 

The user configurable button on the pisound allows you to interact with the Raspberry Pi in powerful new ways. The Button allows you to open patches straight from a USB thumb drive, safely close them, shut down the Raspberry Pi and even launch "pisound" Wi-Fi hotspot, so that you can connect to the device via SSH, VNC or send WiFi-MIDI messages directly to your Pi using a smartphone or tablet.

Prices start at $89 for more info visit the pisound indiegogo campaign
