I would like to build a zynth box with a lean ramp up just with raspi and stuff I already have… I have in mind to bring it to a synth workshop for young people and would adress this solution as a cheap jump into synthesise just with a raspi and standard midi keyboard.
So, in my first setup - Raspi Pi 3B+ + Samsung HDMI Display with integrated Sound (like a TV) - To get Zynthian started, I used generic hdmi, dummy wires and dummy soundcard. It works, I also get Midi Input with an Artuoria Keystep but I can not hear any sound - hdmi to TV doesn’t work and there is also no output to a headphone connected to the Raspi 3,5 Jack.
Which settings should I choose to get sound from internal Pi without a soundcard?
My second choice is a Presonus Audiobox USB which should be class compliant and works fine on MacOS without drivers.
I turned sound settings to generic usb, but zynthian doesn’t start.
Any ideas for configuration? Is there a chance to read out some settings via mac/terminal/ssh?
And third, if nothing works… I will buy a Hifiberry DAC+.
Is the Pifi DAC+ woth to wait for? On ebay shipped from China it is 1/3 of price as Hifiberry and should have the same chip. Will Pifi works with zynthian as well as Hifiberry?
Are there any DAC alternatives to Hifiberry, preferably shipped from Germany?
Thanks in advance for your replies
