PiSound with Python

Hi, I want to use PiSound’s pins as an input to a python project. I have a few ideas, centered around guitar, like creating a visualizer, guessing the current note you’re playing, or creating completely custom effects.
However, I’m stuck at step 1. I’m not sure which pins are used for what or how to read them into a python project. Any advice is appreciated, or similar project which use python I could use as reference. Thanks!

This should help. https://makersportal.com/blog/2018/8/23/recording-audio-on-the-raspberry-pi-with-python-and-a-usb-microphone

Thanks, I’ll definitely test this out while experimenting with USB, but what I’m really interested in is using the audio jacks on the PiSound and plugging a guitar straight into that.

Follow the article but ignore everything about USB. The Pisound audio jacks are recognised as a device.

If I provided you with explicit instructions you wouldn’t learn much :slight_smile:
