...and finally... the "Success" post
My first Zynthian is now fully assembled and tested (a good musician tested it, my "bang away" playing style is not a real test ) and ready to be given to the friend that asked me to build it.
It has been almost completely hand wired (but I'm used to hand wire prototypes well bigger than this... Zynthian worked the very first time I powered it)
I designed a 3D printable case for rPI3+PiTFT+HiFiBerry, STL files are on the github repository and on thingiverse. The case is made by many pieces, and each piece can be printed with the outer side on the printing bed, to have a nice and glossy surface. Parts fits on a quite small bed (18x16cm)
I'm thinking about making a thin (2D) printed decal to put on front panel, with key and control descriptions, like the offical one.
Here are some "work in progress" pictures.
RPI3 on its support:
My fantastic "spaghetti style" wiring
...and now? Already building my second one (for the musician that tested the first one and loved the idea of a "portable hammond"... probably I'll build it directly inside one of his midi master keyboards
And the third one will be for me, with AudioInjector board. It'll be a good addition to synths that I can't play : the great Novation MiniNova, a Yamaha PSR3000, and the funny Pocket Operator PO-20 "Arcade"
