The Pisound Android App Beta Is Live!

#1

Hey guys, the Pisound App Beta is live! The setup information is available at https://blokas.io/pisound/docs/pisound-app/. Only users who have applied for the beta will have access to the Play Store download.

The Focus of the Beta

The app implements strictly the basic technical aspects of launching patches on Raspberry Pi & Pisound remotely from a mobile device via Bluetooth and that is what we want to get right first. We raised the following goals:

  • The app must be stable and just work.
  • Adding support for more patch host software should be easily doable and shareable.
  • The interaction after initial setup should be possible without any display or input devices connected to Raspberry Pi.

As we mentioned before, some issues are to be expected, and we can test only on a very limited set of devices, so that’s where you step in. :slightly_smiling_face:

Any tips for switching patches until then? Is there a way to use midi to cycle through?
