Pisound is an ultra-low latency high-quality sound card and MIDI interface specially designed for Raspberry Pi pocket computers.
Equipped with 192kHz 24-bit Stereo Input and Output driven by the legendary Burr-Brown chips, DIN-5 MIDI Input and Output ports, user-customizable button and bundled software tools, this little Raspberry Pi HAT will bring your audio projects to a whole new level!
Using Pisound you can turn your Raspberry Pi into a music instrument or effect, audiophile network player, portable recording studio, internet radio station or anything you can think of as long as it's audio related!
Pisound works great with Patchbox OS, Raspbian, ArchLinux, Pixel, Ubuntu Mate, Audacity, Pure Data, Sonic Pi, SuperCollider, Volumio and any other Linux software!
A simple but really sturdy and beautiful case for your Pisound and Raspberry Pi. The enclosure is cut from semi-transparent 3mm thick acrylic sheet.
Round engravings indicate the Output ports and the Volume potentiometer. Button cap, standoffs and screws are included in the package.

We used the legendary Burr-Brown Op-Amps, ADC and DAC chips in this little board to ensure flawless signal amplification and conversion. Of course, everything is hooked to the dedicated ultra-low noise power supply in order to get maximum signal fidelity and minimum interference.
Thanks to wide-range gain control, you can connect audio sources ranging from your bass guitar to a CD player or your modular synth. Using Stereo Output you can hook Pisound to any mixer, speakers or just plug in your headphones.
Furthermore, unlike usual MIDI solutions for Raspberry Pi ®, MIDI on Pisound is implemented using high speed SPI and a dedicated MCU for translating SPI data to serial MIDI byte streams and it's readily recognized in audio software as an ALSA Raw MIDI device.
