I learned about Zynthian about a week ago. I have tried it using a Raspberry Pi 4 4Gb I already had, a PC monitor, a USB keyboard and a LPK25 Akai USB keyboard.
I also used an old Asus Xonar U3 USB sound card. I selected “Generic Usb Device” in the Audio section in the web configuration panel an just had to change the hw: parameter to “3” in Jack options (selecting the Advanced view):
-P 70 -t 2000 -s -d alsa -d hw:3 -r 44100 -p 256 -n 2 -X raw
I intend to build a minimal setup that allows me to play with some virtual synths but not using a computer (I have enough of it during the week ), and that hopefully is very portable.
So I have ordered a controller set and an all-in-one kit from the Zynthian shop. Thanks for making these kits available, and with so many options! They look very neat, and although I can solder they look much nicer than anything I could fashion ;-). For the screen my plan is to go with a 5" capacitive.
when I have put the rest of the pieces together!
