Intermission Sound Control with Raspberry Pi

A few times a year I volunteer to an arts organization and serve as their “house sound and light guy.” I usually run sound and do the lights for the traveling acts if they don’t have a tech with them. The auditorium is in a rural Minnesota area, but even so, we try to host a professional quality event for our concert goers and guest artists. Small details such as pre-show and intermission music in the lobby ...

Compact High-Performance 12V 20W Stereo Amplifier

Amplifiers which run from 12V DC generally don’t put out much power and they are usually not hifi as well. But this little stereo amplifier ticks the power and low distortion boxes. With a 14.4V supply, it will deliver 20 watts per channel into 4-ohm loads at clipping while harmonic distortion at lower power levels is typically less than 0.03%. This is an ideal project for anyone wanting a compact stereo am ...

There are so many incredible things you can do with a Raspberry Pi. You could build a robot. Invent a new kind of musical instrument. Or send the tiny computer nearly into outer space on a picture-taking balloon adventure. Sadly, I have no idea how to do any of those things. But I bought a couple of Raspberry Pis, and it would have felt wasteful not to at least do something useful with them. The obvious cho ...

Raspberry pi Pandora’s Jukebox

I recently had a Crosley mini jukebox/CD player handed to me with the intention of "fixing" it. The person who gave it to me only ever used it for a radio since nobody listens to CD's anymore, so I decided it would be a much more enjoyable to make it a pandora box. Step 1: Get your materials. Now you don't need an actual mini jukebox, any enclosure for the 7in monitor that will also fit the speakers would w ...
