The inaugural lecture of the Oxford group, given by Andy Farnell on “Audio applications of the Raspberry Pi and other single board computers”.

Commodity development boards such the Raspberry Pi and Beagle Board promise to revolutionise educational possibilities. These differ significantly from traditional embedded development. Rather than using JTAG interfacing and specialised tools, common networking and a laptop can be used to develop audio DSP applications. From High school student to PHD researcher, or even commercial product prototyping – this opens up a range of possibilities for speedy development of audio products.

In this lecture we will investigate the basics of developing audio applications on the Raspberry Pi board and will be displaying examples of implementation such as streaming, synthesis and real-time processing.
