last week I got my (beta) pisound: very nice! I asked a friend to print a 3D-case. For the beta I had to fix the MIDI holes and add a hole for the power plug (all done by hand and not inside the STL). Now my RPi3 with pisound fits into the case:
I created a SD card image based on our build scripts for Zynthian. This image fits onto a 4GB SD card.
<DISCLAIMER> This image is based on MOD-UI - a fantastic web based user-interface and LV2 host from [MOD devices] (http://moddevices.com) and other fine open-source software. I and MOD are not responsible for any problems or failures of the software! If you find bugs, you can try to contact me in this forum - but my main focus is creating Zynthian and testing for MOD - so I cannot maintain this image. If you like MOD-UI and need support: think about buying a MOD-Duo. </DISCLAIMER>
Requirements for testing:
- DHCP server
- RPI3 (RPi2 will not work!)
- Mic/Guitar/MIDI-keyboard/… and an amplifier
- Knowledge how to install an SD card image
How to test:
- Download the Image (will be available until 09.05.2017): MOD-PiSound-Image (~1.7GB)
- Install the image on a SD card (minimum 4GB) - if you don’t know how to do this: ask google
- Place the SD card in your RPi3+pisound (Yes - the software is optimized for RPi3 - so RPi2 will not work!)
- Connect a network cable (without network ->no ui ->no sound!), connect a guitar/mic and/or MIDI-keyboard
- Power on
- Wait about 30 seconds
- Connect to [YOUR-IP-ADDRESS]:8888
- Use the web gui to click your effects and generators together and have fun!
To get a shell onto your RPi do the folowing:

I have put some demo pedalboards onto the card: try to load them via the second button on the bottem-left.
And here is a small demo (sorry - I am not a really good guitar player) with a Marshall-Amp-Simulation:
