New EP music-album entirely on the Raspberry Pi

Thu Jan 11, 2018 12:11 pm

Hi guys.

Out of love to the Raspberry Pi :) :) :) -> https://yerzmyey.bandcamp.com/album/rpi-zwei

YERZMYEY - RPi ZWEI

01 RPi Zwei
02 Ursula (part 2)
03 Alien encounter
04 Wake Hime
05 Digital Garbage RPi's Remix

TT: 19:15 min.

This album has been made on Raspberry Pi 2.
Also, it has been recorded entirely & directly from the machine.

The RPi's sound is being generated by the Broadcom BCM2835 chip (for the 1st model of RPi) and by Broadcom BCM2836 chip (in the 2nd model RPi), so it's resolved somewhat like in ZX Spectrum: the sound is being generated by CPU.

They say it works with 11 bit quality. It's not an actual DAC, it is a digital PWM module (gives a 'pulse width modulated' signal) working with frequency around 40MHz and it is low-pass-filtered.
The original Pi sound is warm'n'soft; doesn't remind thousands of razors.

Some people claim RPi isn't good for music.
They are WRONG.

Amazing and awesome.

I agree the RPi sound is surprisingly warm.

I would love to see a video about how you did this. What tools and techniques? What software? How long it took? etc...

If only someone could find the rare limited edition "Ursula (part 1)" ;)

I kindly thank You guys.

Well, the system in my case is always Raspbian, as I'm not good with Linux, so the Raspbian is rather comfortable version for "Windows XP people" like me. ;)

As for the utilities, like I mentioned elsewhere, this time I used the MilkyTracker editor with the RPi2 computer (now I use the RPi 3).
Instruments have to be prepared earlier, on another computer (PC? Mac?) or have to be downloaded from some sample-collections, but entire composing process can be easily done on the RPi.
I prepare samples on my PC usually.

For the newest Raspbian system in the Raspberry Pi 3 downloading and installing would be like this:
Preferences / Add - Remove Software / now search for "milky" word and install the program.

My opinion about cutting the Pi 2 and old Raspbian from the software is well-known, so I'll skip it here.
Supposedly "apt get" command might do the trick here.

As for the samples, my favourite portal was the Music Radar:

I suspect the Milky should also work on The RPi 1 (even if with somewhat smaller number of channels) and I think it must work on RPi Zero too.

And the prog in version of RPi looks like this:

Ah, and I'm afraid the "Ursula (part 1)" is a song composed on Sinclair ZX81 with the TurboSound card. :)
