I have setup the PiSound board on a Raspberry Pi3. I used the black spacers and screws to secure it. I did notice that when I used the spacers, vs No spacers, the 2 boards were not fully touching though GPIO. In other words, with the black spacers, I was only able to push the PiSound board 90% of the way, onto the Raspberry Pi3; still majority on the GPIO pins, but not fully.
Additionally I set it up (installs for puresound, etc) using SSH through ‘pi@IP Address’. I don’t know if that makes a difference.? Because I noticed someone mention that there are sample pd files in ‘/usr/local/puredata-patches’. Additionally, there was mention of putting a .pd file on a USB stick and then inserting the stick into the Pi3. However, how does PiSound know where to read the ‘main.pd’ file from? I changed my USB directory to ‘/home/pi/usbdrv’ from ‘dev/sda1’ ; does this matter? Is there code or conf that I can change to tell PiSound to read from ‘main.pd’.
Also, what is the method for having multiple subdirectories in this ‘mapped’ directory (like ‘.fuzz’, ‘/tremolo’) which all contain a ‘main.pd’ that can be toggled through the ‘Button’?
Right now I have plugged my Guitar 1/4 in the the ‘in’ jack, and sent the 1/4 Jack from ‘out’ into my Guitar Amplifier. I click the ‘Button’ but I get no signal or noise out of my amp. Just red LED light-ups on the actual PiSound board.
I was able to run ‘speaker-test -Dsysdefault -c2’ (although I can’t interpet the output, no noise came from my amp), AND the 3 tests ‘amidi -L, arecord -L, aplay -L’ (it appears that the piSound is the sound driver).
Any ideas where I missed?
