[sdiy] is raspberry pi the future?

I don't know about using the RPi as base for proper synth building.
However as a platform for building inexpensive digital synth I love
it. Hook a cheap USB audio out and midi in and you are ready to go.

I've successfully ported my tracker to it

And it runs flawlessly.

I've also tried some onboard headless synthesis and it works quite
well as long as you don't overload it too much with heavy algorithms:

Right now for diy synth I'm more into using the teensy, and for
dsp-based or sequencing the RPi.

Cheers,
