• Raspberry Pi Zynthian synthesizer

    Recently I bought a Raspberry Pi 4 kit, thinking I'd use it to stream PC games to my TV (I had heard about some software called Parsec that could do this). However, my interested shifted a bit when I was looking at other Pi projects available, and came across Zynthian, which is an open-source synthesizer software and hardware kit for the Raspberry Pi:

    I don't know a whole lot about Zynthian yet, but it looks pretty cool. Recently it looked like their hardware kits were out of stock, but this morning I saw they had their kit v4.6 in stock, so I decided to order one. Once put together and set up, it looks like it's basically a little synthesizer, and it looks like you should be able to plug in a MIDI controller to play music with it.


    Currently I have a Roland Juno-G synthesizer, which I like, but recently its LCD screen has started to have some issues. It looks like its LCD screen may stop working at some point - a common issue with the Juno-G, unfortunately. I like the Juno-G and would like to get it repaired at some point. But the Zynthian syntheizer looks cool too.
