RPI Alarm clock radio

Mon Dec 11, 2017 9:45 pm

I recently started to build my own alarm clock radio powered by a raspberry pi 3 with a hifiberry MiniAmp on top of it. I wrote a alarm clock program in c# which runs perfectly on the pi with Mono. But now i'm stuck.... I have the following problems

- Poor audio quality without an EQ:
with raspbian I had acces to the GUI of VLC in which I could set an eq. Now that im runnning a headless version of Raspbian, vlc just won't set the eq. Does anyone know how to set an eq setting in the console? or how to use an EQ with mplayer?

- I can't find a good example of how to use IO in c#
I tried raspberry sharp io to control the GPIO pins on the pi but I can't figure out how to use the the inputs and outputs as, well simple in an outputs. Would it be easier to rewrite my program in Java so the pin acces becomes easier?
