Omenie Synth Collection on a Raspberry Pi Model A

Published on Aug 19, 2015 Pi Synth

"7 simultaneous synths - 3 Virtual Analog (VAsynth), 2 sample replay (SRsynth) and 2 wavetable trajectory (WTsynth) - are sequenced to play back one of Ron's finest tunes. The individual instruments are walked through first by whipping through MIDI channels and bashing keys before the sequence is launched.

There is one minor bit of cheating - or is it an advanced feature? I have not written the sequencing language description of this tune yet, so I exploit the 'launch MIDI grab' feature whereby the sequencing program initializes all the instruments, sets level and pan, sets the preset for each MIDI channel, then fires previously-captured MIDI down the throat of the synthesizer service, which deals with distributing MIDI packets to the right synth.

And I should stress - the computer that is synthesizing all these instruments, and rendering the full-screen 1280x720 waveform display, AND dealing with the multiple MIDI keyboards costs $20."
