Re: General Raspberry Pi stuff

WiFi and Bluetooth excepted... I wasn't intending to be defensive - I just think that they are for different parts of the IoT space. You wouldn't really run an ESP32 on a battery (maybe a car battery...) but could genuinely consider that for a Pico, and that's a significant USP. that was my point r...

Re: General Raspberry Pi stuff

Re: General Raspberry Pi stuff

Re: what are you doing ?

trying manfully to rethink or repurpose a rhythm that sits quite happily at 200 bpm in 3/4 into a 4/4 rhythm at 120 bpm...This is to fit into a melody that I've been doodling for the last 6 months...or more precisely to find a background that I can play the melody over..... and Sebastian keeps comin...

Re: Nothing In Particular

I remember watching my daughters recording being compressed at Fairview studios a few years ago, it sound dire once they had done their magic..

Irony

The topic is a bit of a pun in itself....but we can rise above it.. It struck me recently that in the beginning it took a long while for mosfets to gain anything like critical mass in the hifi fraternity...there was so much valve snobbery going on that it more or less went unnoticed that solid state...
