Raspberry Pi Pocket TX816 (8 DX7s)

Portable device hosting multiple DEXED instances      18/04/22

The Raspberry Pi is the biggest selling home computer of all time and this year marked it's 10 year anniversary. This superb project uses a Raspberry Pi hosting multiple instances of DEXED, the free multi platform open source synth based on the DX7 architecture. In the video, Floyd Steinberg (nice name!) shows how he put the project together (with links to the various components), setting up the software on the Pi and finally playing the synth! 

It sounds great and is an awesome project to use for simple MIDI playback! I'd love to see more knobs, as menu diving between 8 DX7s with one encoder would be a sound designers nightmare! You could buy 8 DTronics DT7s as a starting point..... Still, it's an inspiring device which sounds as close to the DX7 as anything else that can fit in your pocket.
