the 3ds slider is a neatly-designed analogue stick. I don't know what sort of signals you get out of it, though they'd be analogue too, I assume.

Re: Gert's VGA - 888 possible?

Get a load of 5% resistors and measure them. you're bound to find one that has the exact value you need - depending on the amount of resistors you have, and the accuracy+precision of your meter. An interesting maths problem would be to calculate how many resistors you'd need to get in order to have ...

Hey Yerzmyey, could you answer a question for me please? Ages ago (mid-1990s) , I used to make music using an atari ST, an akai S20 sampler, and a Yamaha MU5.

It is an interpreted language though, and the original raspi isn't particularly fast, so you're not going to have an abundance of CPU power - but wonders can be done wit...
