  • new module - GPIO (only for Raspberry Pi); with this module you can send or receive the signals to/from GPIO pins;
  • new simple song example: raspberry_pi_gpio;
  • bugs fixed.
v1.8 BETA (21 oct 2014):
  • audio engine has been switched to 32bit (Floating Point) mode on Android and iOS devices (except the slow devices without FPU);
  • other than 44100 sampling rate support for iOS and Android (only if the audio hardware supports it);

Love the new writing of values to patterns in this latest Beta as it can be very convenient.

Are you planning to do something similar for touch screen maybe with a button you can hold in to write the values to the pattern?
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY CIRCLES

The new feature of: "press SHIFT and change the value of some controller - the new value will be written to the pattern;" will be a huge help for questions I raised here:

viewtopic.php?f=16&t=3174

Thanks!
(I hope a variation of this makes it's way to iOS.)

this is awesome, it will be really useful for some projects i'm working on and save a ton of time, just ordered a Raspberry Pi. :)

are you planning on supporting multi outs like this in the other versions? using multiple ins and out on a soundcard for stuff like sending out gates or inputing control signals to sound2ctrl would be nice. :)

on the other hand, it'll be fun to use sunvox on my laptop to sequence and interact with sunvox on the raspberry pi to do this kind of i/o and do it really cheaply too!

ps donated. :)

Yes, maybe in future updates :) It is much more complicated task than GPIO

multi outs could be very helpful,. I just found an old electronic drum kit at a country yard sale. Came with two big old drum synth units,. Tama Techstar TS305 and TS306 with 6 triggers on each,. stereo audio gets me two triggers, but my pc has 7.1 so was looking to just use that to send triggers,. but alas only stereo currently. I do have a rPi so I will have a go with that tomorrow.
