I have new project - synthesiser built out of surplus Raspberry Pi. It’s simple - I just took old RasPi, my USB MIDI keyboard, an cheap LCD display and rotary encoder and few wires and put it together. I used my old Cabbage plugins and just wrapped it by some Python code, which just let me to tweak synth parameters by knob and display them on LCD screen. Not finished yet but already works great.
I am thinking one step further. If RasPi has HDMI output and my plugins already have GUI, why not have an option to use GUI instead of hardware knob if user prefers it? Unfortunately I have very little experience with building C++ projects so I am asking if somebody already solved this.
Also - it seems that you need VST2 SDK which seems to be unavailable now (except some stolen copies). Do I need this to built when I am gonna use it in standalone mode anyway?
Technical details on my project later. Now just some hardware photos:
