Great, and thank you for the information.
you have to wait for another release of the iso and flash it again if you want new feature and pedals, but maybe you can install plugins with SSH I don’t know
I’m not sure either - it seems possible that one could use the sources to build a custom ISO and/or load LV2s onto the device via SSH or storage. I’m sure I’d miss a few recent favorites from the store but for many of my use cases the stock set is workable.
Also you have only 1 hardware button to interract with, and you can’t bind it since its used to select banks, so you will need a midi controller.
I don’t think that Control Chain device works with it but you have more USB than on the duo and the bluetooth/wifi is built-in (since it’s a raspberry).
Thank you for the tip. This is OK for me, I already have a USB controller with 4 switches and an expression pedal. Also an FCB1010 in the garage that I could dust off… I’m also interested in building my own custom controller boards but don’t want to hit too many technical hurdles. I like that they appear to have a working breadboard example with a few buttons and pots.
I’ve been putting some thought lately into my next steps for equipment for recording and performing. I wish I could have a few Duos - one for each instrument (…plus backups ) but that gets pretty expensive and I’m feeling spooked about the stability of both the device and the company. Sometimes I imagine more of a rack or mixer style device with several input channels. Having multiple PiSound devices could work well, especially with the controller app and extensive MIDI mapping that it seems to have.

Not a problem for me. I appreciate what they are trying to accomplish with the protocol but I haven’t seen success stories with the CC devices. I’ll stick with USB and MIDI (and OSC which seems to be well supported there)
Thank you again for the info @Fish
