Inspired by the Piana project (http://raspberrypisynthesizer.blogspot.co.uk/) I’ve decided to combine my passions for writing software, playing music and the Raspberry Pi – and create the Pithesiser!
This will be software synth tailored and tuned to run on the Pi, and is principally a vehicle for me to learn more about digital audio and try blogging about the whole experience. And to scratch an old itch – getting back to doing some low-level coding!
I’ll be considering whether or not to make the code open source, but right now it’s not in a state to make public.
Like any decent synthesiser, there should be some ambiguity over how the name is pronounced. I say “Pi” as in the mathematical constant or delicious baked foodstuff. Phonetically it is “paɪ”
