Hey guys! Here’s the new Patchbox OS image with support for RPi4 out of the box and updated software. And the
patchbox utility now lets you install MODEP as one of the modules!
It has the 4.19.71-rt24 real time kernel integrated by default.

The WiFi hotspot is on by default.
To get MODEP installed, run
patchbox, go to
modules and pick
modep. Then open http://patchbox.local on your computer if you are on the same network as the device, otherwise, figure out the IP of the device and use it with http like this: http://172.24.1.1 (this is the default IP if the device is hosting a WiFi hotspot)
Main Software Versions
- Audacity 2.2.2
- Pure Data 0.50.2
- Pianoteq Standard Trial 6.6.0
- SuperCollider 3.10.0
The 4.19.71-rt24 kernel seems to have some issues with Bluetooth, so the Pisound App connection keeps getting disconnected after a few seconds. This can be worked around by installing regular kernel. Fortunately this operation is very straightforward.
To install ‘stock’ kernel, run:
sudo apt install raspberrypi-kernel
To install ‘realtime’ kernel, run:
sudo apt install raspberrypi-kernel-rt
