We’re excited to announce a new action for pisound’s button! Running the usual install commands from http://blokas.io is enough to update!
Triple-clicking it will reconfigure the WiFi of RPI3 board to behave as an Access Point (a.k.a. Wireless Router), as well as start ‘touchosc2midi’ monitor which will be ready to listen and forward MyOsc data as MIDI to other software such as puredata.
By default, the AP will appear as ‘pisound’, and the default password is ‘blokaslabs’ (without quotes). You can change the name and password by modifying /usr/local/etc/pisound/hostapd.conf Keep in mind that this file gets backed up and overwritten after reinstalling the pisound-btn software.
The default IP address of RPI3 is 172.24.1.1 which you can use for ssh, VNC or wireless OSC / MIDI data! That means that you can easily interact with your system using just your laptop or phone, no more wires apart from power supply is needed! And it gets better, if the LAN cable is connected to RPI3, it will share the Internet with the connected devices.
Triple-clicking again will revert to regular WiFi behavior.
