Music has always been driven forward in part by the technology used to make it. The piano combined the best features of the harpsichord and clavichord to help concert musicians; the electric guitar made performing and recording different forms of blues, jazz, and rock music possible; and electronic drum machines both facilitated songwriting and spawned entire genres of music in themselves. Code has become a part of so many different ways of making music today: digital audio workstation (DAW) sof ...

Ive moved into a new house and came across a sense hat for the raspberry pi which made me remember a little project that I was working on, its basically a html based color chooser which updates the selected colour on the sense hat so I thought I'd share the scripts etc.. incase anybody finds them helpful / useful.       To start with I was running lighttpd on the Raspberry Pi which is a lightweight webserver, very simple to use and just requires a small modification to its conf ...

This post features videos that I published to my YouTube channel in the series "IOT with Raspberry Pi ". This basically contains 4 videos around raspberry pi that show how to use Raspberry Pi as an IOT device. It starts from interfacing sensor to publishing the sensor data to cloud server using protocols like REST or MQTT. For the entire project I have used JAVA and on top of that used various libraries for specific tasks like Pi4J, Unirest, Eclipse PAHO etc (Links provided below). If you have w ...
Microsoft was able to squeeze their deep-learning algorithms onto an RPi 3 in order to bring intelligence to small devices.   Love it or fear it, AI is advancing, and it’s coming to small/portable electronic devices thanks to advanced developments made by Microsoft. The software giant was recently successful at loading their deep-learning algorithms onto a Raspberry Pi 3 SBC. The advancement will obviously be a boon for anything, and everything IoT, which is on track to take the world ...

Hi,   I'm working actually on a professional RS422/RS485 shield for the Raspberry Pi. I wasn't satisfied with the shields on the market. They are very simple and have some disadvantages. My shield comes with the following features:   RS422 (full duplex) support RS485 (half duplex) support galvanic isolation between PI and interface indicator leds for RX and TX activity switchable pull-up, pull-down and terminal resistor different modes for send/receive switching (Auto, GPIO, alw ...

I'm not sure how I managed to miss this, perhaps because it's still in 'developer preview', but a version of Android is officially available for the Raspberry Pi 3.   If you're really keen, you can download the image here for the developer preview 3.1.   Thanks to the recent release of Google's AIY Project with the latest version of the MagPi magazine (already selling for £40+ on ebay), the official guide for the project which is rumored to be on sale at a later date from Go ...
Google has been busy getting stuff attached to MagPi magazines.. I spotted a box containing an 'AIY' kit at the local magazine retailer. Basically it is a card box with some electrical parts and the MagPi magazine. It is like a cut-down DIY version of Amazon Alexa from what I can tell.   They had plenty at closing time, so I suspect there will be lots for people to buy tomorrow too, but from examination it is an audio card and a few peripherals. USB sound cards are cheap these days so tha ...
The Raspberry Pi and other low-cost, board-based computers are becoming increasingly popular amongst developers and hobbyists, thanks to the Internet of Things revolution. Users are easily able to experiment with IoT projects by connecting to a network using wired or wireless connections – whether this is through the simple use of an Ethernet cable, or with complementary accessories such as the Raspberry Pi’s Wi-Fi adapter dongle.   However, users requiring access to internet d ...
I am hoping that a new HAT we have designed and released will be of interest to anyone wanting to control motors within their own projects using the Raspberry Pi computer. The Pulse Train Hat is an add-on board for the Rapsberry Pi computer and allows clean, fast and accurate pulses to be created using simple ASCII commands.   There are many hardware designs where a variable frequency pulse is needed, but one that is the most popular is for driving stepper/servo motors that use pulse an ...
Hi, my name is Dan and my ham radio callsign is M0WUT. I am developing an automated Raspberry Pi Zero based transceiver for the WSPR amateur mode. What is WSPR? WSPR stands for Weak Signal Propogation Reporter (full details WSJT Home Page) developed by Joe Taylor, K1JT. In short, amateur stations transmit data packets containing their callsign, their location and how much power they are transmitting with. Once received, these can be decoded by a computer who uploads them to a central databas ...
If you are here to see how to add Ethernet / soundcard functionality to the Pi Zero, this is a part to be used in my automated amateur radio WSPR transceiver. Explanation of which can be found here: WSPRpi part 0: Introduction and what is WSPR? If you are not interested in how I intend to use it and just want to see how to add Ethernet or a soundcard to a Pi Zero, skip to the Design section.   Finished result   WSPRpi For people interested in the use in the WSPRpi project: The tw ...
