Re: Top Hat with Breadboard

Here's an example of a pHAT and Breadboard combo I designed some time ago, if that's the sort of thing the OP is asking about:

Re: Raspberry Pi as a Bass Pedal/ RSP

I'm not too familiar with fx's for bass pedals but the basic idea is the same for both guitar and bass: use an ADC to capture the audio signal, then use software to manipulate it in some fashion, then use a DAC to generate new audio sound based on the manipulated audio. Using an audio codec with som...

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but does any one know where the Sharp LCD LQ092B5DW01 is stocked?

Pollin had some, but they are out of stock:

Re: A Pi using an external Zilog Z80 chip

I can't help thinking that you would have a much nicer time of it by getting hold of an actual Z80 board. For example the RC2014 Mini - Single Board Z80 Computer Kit: https://www.tindie.com/products/Semachthemonkey/rc2014-mini-single-board-z80-computer-kit/ I saw that board at the Bay Area Maker Fa...

Re: Using CAN and RS485 at the same time

I built such a CAN Bus & RS485 board a few months back. Here's a short write up on it: https://zuzebox.wordpress.com/2016/11/22/raspberry-pi-fieldbus-canrs485rs232-add-on-board/ The CAN Bus chips use the SPI interface, while the RS485 transceiver chip uses the UART interface and also two GPIO signal...

Re: RPi Synthesizer Project

@TonyD - Thanks for the link to the Rpi UART MIDI setup - very interesting. I assume you built some sort of MIDI IN to GPIO interface. Yeah. I've built a few for the RPi over the last few years. This was my last one: https://zuzebox.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/rpib_piio_midi02_small.jpg https://zuz...

Re: RPi Synthesizer Project

@Jum & @IanS Both synth projects look great. Over the years I've built a number of different serial MIDI interfaces for the Rpi for using a MIDI keyboard so I'm really looking forward to seeing how both your projects develop Here's my last attempt: https://zuzebox.wordpress.com/2015/12/13/setting-up...
