I bought a devterm without any idea what I was going to use it for, and now I think I know. I want to make a digital instrument using Pure Data.
Looking into some of the things people have made to use Pd, I came across some videos of a rasPi with a soundcard hat.
Is there any interest in a soundcard for the Devterm?
I’d love to be able to use mine as a synth, I’d thought about trying to install a few for fun
A tiny synth expansion that would generate the audio sounds real fun!
I’m immediately reminded of M8 Tracker. That one’s actually powered by a Teensy microcontroller.
Quick plug to my thread about using the EXT for porting pi hats: https://forum.clockworkpi.com/t/designing-a-ext-prototyping-breakout-with-raspberry-pi-hat-compatibility/
Here’s my hookup:
Just waiting on my A04! But when it arrives I’ll be posting my progress on getting this soundcard to work.
EDIT: Another pic. That PCB with the hat reduces to half-size. So those audio connectors will sit right inside the printer hatch.

porting pi hats is an awesome idea!
I was looking at Orca as a sequencer and I don’t know exactly what for a synth.
I had the same idea myself!
Neat! Porting the hats over is a really good idea going forward. I did notice that they had the GPIO connector and thought that I should look into what is available. Just got my a06 and just starting to see what I can make it do.

I have also tried Orca+OPZ, works like a charm
I was thinking “hmm why not use the 40pin fpc connector instead of a full ext. breakout board…” and I mapped it out:
There’s no way this is going to be useful, and @DustinWoods 's way is the only right way.
right, so we only have a handful of GPIO available even if we took one of the FPC headers out on a ribbon… sad
Can also fit a Maya22 USB soundcard in there I believe. Did that once to my other cyberdeck/synth thing, when you remove the tall audio jack from the board the height should be acceptable.
