Headless Pi Synth

Categories: Development, News

I’ve put together a headless implementation of FluidPatcher that works on a Raspberry Pi without the need for any extras (i.e. buttons/screens) by polling for specific CC messages to change patches. Just another way people can try out the code and come up with their own use cases. I like to think of someone just […]

MIDI Filtering

Categories: Development

I want a way for FluidPatcher to listen to incoming messages so I can map something to inc/dec patch and select patch. NS if there’s a way to “listen” to an input port that’s already connected to FluidSynth – patcher.py would have to pass messages back and forth. Tried with Mido but there’s too much […]

This is How We Do it

Categories: Development, News

I’ve spent the last week working up a wxpython implementation of fluidpatcher that works as a cross-platform editor and player of patches. This makes it easy to quickly create, test, and use complex and interesting patch setups! I also made a downloadable installer for windows that includes the latest version of FluidSynth and posted it […]

New Plan

Categories: Development

okay new plan because why ever finish thisrelease my own pyfluidsynth that is more compatible with fluidsynth 2 and python3also has a dict attribute that tracks the loaded soundfonts, idsmaybe other stuff toorewrite squishbox.py to use objects so we don’t have messy globalsmaybe part the bank/patch stuff into a separate patcher.py script, fold the stompboxpi […]

Mods/Upgrades

Categories: Development

use tinyfilemanager (https://github.com/prasathmani/tinyfilemanager) for web interface new yaml format, script to convert old->new easy directory structure: scripts in ~/SquishBox directory soundfonts banks speed up boot time look into some kind of bare-metal fluidsynth build? fast but less mod-able separate service to start LCD with version + maybe progress bar midi routing – expand with mido […]
