Digital Music Stand with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi


From Instructables user afryklund:

…I’ve been scheming for some time to find a digital solution in the form of an electronic music stand. As it turns out, there are a number of ways to reach this common goal now (including several sheet music reading apps for iPad and Android), and this is but one of them.

With an extremely simple hardware setup and a few software tweaks to the pi, I’ve found an solution that I am very satisfied to use. Beyond the “music stand” capabilities of this setup, I have also set up (and continue to work on) a composition sketching environment. In it’s most current version it’s only real ability is to sketch scores by hand using a standard stylus, however I am attempting to develop handwriting recognition into it.

Current features:

• Display sheet music using a modified version of the program Xournal, which allows for PDF annotation and drawing

• Digital library management using Calibre

• Composition sketchbook (also using Xournal)

• Ability to download scores directly from IMSLP onto Raspberry Pi for immediate use

Planned features:

• Handwriting (note) recognition, playback, and MIDI/Music-Xml export

• On-screen metronome

• Mounting solution for accessibility in a variety of environments

• Big buttons in corners for page turning

• Option for hardware device (such as a foot pedal) for page turning
