Other audio software works on pi-Stomp!
« on: February 02, 2021, 02:10:20 PM »

pi-Stomp has always intended to be a platform. One of its main advantages over commercial units, is that it runs Linux, and thus can run additional software.

I just committed some minor software changes to allow the hardware to work independently of the recommended MOD software. So now, you can use pi-Stomp hardware with other audio plugin hosts!

You can even MIDI-map the pi-Stomp controls and footswitches to control effect parameters in the host.

I’ve tested two such hosts so far. They both work great.

Rakarack – an awesome (Free) guitar oriented virtual pedalboard

Carla – a Free, full featured modular audio host. It can run multiple plugin formats including LADSPA, DSSI, LV2, VST2, VST3 and AU, plus SF2 and SFZ sound font files!

For more details and installation instructions, check out

We’ll likely eventually add improved support for software like these so that the LCD and rotary encoders can be used to change settings, presets, pedalboards, etc.

thanks a lot for this post! i've been thinking about using pistomp to run headless supercollider programs and was just looking for an answer to this question.
