Onboard audio IO on RPi is the first thing I miss in it, I liked the
bookish APC just for that (and the look of it).Now I have to plug my
USB audio interface for audio stuff (although distros like RaspBMC
have good inner audio and HDMI support). That's what would make a
really powerful headless portable platform, one thing to take with you
to jam or when you don't need pro-audio (i.e. recording yourself or a
band with an audio interface).
One of my projects arose around this idea, is about some kind of
Semantic Musical Dashboard to control presets (done) and (in the
future and even with your voice) connecting things in Jackd. I started
developing it on the necessity or preference of focusing on playing
and jamming using FX and a looper and no screen. It is developed using
HTML5/REST enabling control from the phone (or whatever thing that has
a web browser) and a really light "server" that performs the actions
on the RPi (it can be whatever SO) connected to a net; the rest is
hands, instruments, a MIDI pedalboard, guitar/instrument and maybe an
Lately I'm sticking with my moto, +Muso -Tech.
I'm experimenting with phones and tablets just because they have
already a touch interface and IO (although maybe mic is not for pro
stuff) and you almost always carry them with you. But this is another
story right now until we have proper pro-audio on Linux based phones.
But things seems are moving forward on this matter.
