Hello. I was bored one day while running update/upgrade on a new install if raspberrian so I started clicking around. I was like Sonic Pi? Sure why not. I started reading the manual and with a few copy and pastes I was tweaking code and made a real nice beat with a chord progression. Hooked. (I do have programming experience, so I was not intimidated by the syntax at all!)
I have my first jam coming up this Friday where I plan to use Sonic Pi. I have three RASPi 3 B+ I plan to link together with OSC to distribute the load and prevent underruns…but I might KISS and jam with one pi! The jam is in an old industrial complex with a full sound system. Mixer, mains, subs…the works!
I’m also planing on investigating controlling a behringer x32 board with OSC and Sonic Pi. I think being able to sequence parameters of a mixer and effects via hardware in addition to the Sonic Pi synthesizing sounds will be very neat.
I’m also interested in sending some midi to control a light board.
I just got a job as a theater tech and have the keys and permission to experiment as much as I want during any off hours!
I really think serendipity led my mouse to click on Sonic Pi that day.
