I’ve been using a Pisound (Beta version) on a Pi 2B for a year or so - I even managed to get it running via the Pi’s 5v power, rather than using the power plug on the Pisound, I’m running headless and without anything connected to it so I guess the power req was low enough.
I’d like to start using the Pisound app so need Bluetooth (and Wifi would be good!). I mounted the Pisound on a Pi3 with a clean install of Raspian Stretch and installed the Pisound software. The Pi boots OK, but the Pisound doesn’t show up as a soundcard in the Pisound config - not a big surprise that it didn’t work as its got more to power (wifi + Bluetooth as well as the Pisound). I tried powering via the Pisound power socket using a 12v adaptor from an old Netgear router, but that does the same - Pi boots fine, Pisound doesn’t.
The Pisound still works fine on the Pi2.
Is this a know issue with the beta Pisounds? I don’t think it is! I just wanted to check if anyone had any advice before I spend £10 on a power supply!
self promotion alert I released this recently, the Pisound was used on all of the tracks https://linearobsessional.bandcamp.com/album/puddling
