Does anyone have experience with Hifiberry and Patchbox OS?

Does it work really well?

All USB and hat cards will work with PatchboxOS if they are working with regular Raspbian.

So it depends on what you want to achieve with the OS. :slight_smile: If you’re into working with Linux audio as a musician or engineer, then it’s the OS for the job. If you’d like to listen to music, then it’s better to use other kinds of OSes like Volumio.

I didn’t know that it is based on raspbian.

I build headless pure data synth… so I guess I am the targeted group.

Can’t wait to try it.


Hi, i use raspi3 with phatdac and that works fine. But my plan is use phatdac with a pi0 and for now, it doesnt look easy to do. Did anyone tryed ?

I’ve just tested a Hifiberry DACplusADCpro now on RPi4 with patchbox. It works. Can go down to 64-frame buffers with jack.

There were clicks every few seconds, though I followed the instructions in DACplusADCpro click noise – HiFiBerry which said to add the line “dtoverlay=hifiberry-dacplusadcpro,slave” to config.txt, and after I appended that line to the bottom of /boot/config.txt and reboot, the click sound went away.
