What tools, accessories, and equipment will be helpful? Could be anything from breadboards to jumper wire, soldering iron, oscilloscope, audio interfaces, midi equipment, speakers, tools, cutters, crimpers, any speciality cables, etc, etc
Heya, answering from my phone so excuse any typos. I would go for a Pi 3 b+. I am not sure if the sdk works with pi 4 yet. Also check out the mutable instruments breadboard friends. There are a few places that sell them in kit form. Very handy.
For the time being we support only the RPi 3B / B+, the RPi 4 will be supported early next year, sooner is unlikely.
You do not strictly need to be comfortable with electronics to use the board, you can make a user interface for your system by remote-controlling our Sushi headless-DAW over Open Sound Control and/or gRPC. The UI could be on a touch-screen tablet, or PC/Mac, for example made using Lemur, TouchOSC, or Open Stage Control.
There’s a tweak you’ll need to make to the sd card to allow the keyboard USB to work.
Per another post:
You’ll have to edit the file /boot/cmdline.txt and remove the part that says dwc_otg.speed=1. This will break some MIDI USB devices, it is an issue on the RPi 3 single-board computer which only has an OTG USB controller.
