Incorporating other hardware
« on: September 27, 2021, 12:11:53 PM »
In one of the videos for Pi-Stomp Core you mention using a Pi 4 or a HiFiBerry board.

1. Is there any advantage to using a Pi 4? More RAM with longer effect chains?
1a. Does the length of a Pi 4 interfere with the panel placement of the 1/4 inch TRS sockets?

2. What advantage would there be to using the HiFiBerry instead of the stock sound card?
2a. Would the optional DSP unit for the HiFiBerry be supported by the MODEP/Pi-Stomp software?

Thanks!

Good questions.  And common enough that I finally address them in the configuration guide:

Let me know if you need more.

Well, I suppose you can solve the extra longness of a B model by using a panel mounted jacks for audio and power. The ultra compact concept will be lost then, but it's feasible, I think. It's only a matter of one soldering some wires from the jacks to the core board.
