Hey guys, Im new here and quite intrigued by this project. As I dont own any hardware synthesizer currently, It seems I am having difficulty making a decision. I want to pretty much buy the components I need, minus the Case, and the Pi. also, I ask, looking the the screen in the shop, it says it has a on board controller… does that mean you connect the pots and knobs to that part?
I guess what im asking is, If I want to use my Pi4, and want some additional knobs buttons etc in addition to the 4 that seem standard, where should I go, and what should I do?
I am ok at soldering, I think, since I did 2 playstation mod chips back in 2000, and havnt used a soldering iron since. And though Im not good at electronic engineering, I can follow directions well. I do have basic woodworking skills which i would use to make a case.
From what I read I guess the pi4 isnt really tested and true, but Id like to use it.
also is it easy to implement changes in the gui if Id like to use a larger touch screen? in addition to the knobs
