Slinging code on the Pi

I am working on making my python 3 script better. I am also adding a mode to control the venue lights. I am getting used to

subprocess.run("command", "args")

which is the more accepted way of calling other programs. I am using it to call shell scripts to implement different things. I know I could call ssh directly…. or whatnot. I feel the shell scripts are the best way to go.

take a look at my work in progress code at https://github.com/rainfay/sound_control

I2C Adafruit 16×2 LCD Pi Plate

Hi y’all,

Today I am going to write up a project I am working on.

Problem: I have a USB headphones with cat ears. The Mixers only output analog. Also Needs to be headless.

Solution: Use a ADC and pulseaudio to convert it to a signal that the USB headphones can use.

I used a Raspberry pi, a LCD board and a Behringer UCA222

The UCA222 converts the analog signal to digital. then I am using pacat from pulseaudio to receive it then a pipe to send it to the headphones via pacat.

Now for the headless part I am using the Adafruit 16×2 and button board to control the system. The system is controlled through a python3 program, that reads the buttons and does what is needed based off input.

Currently I am having a issue of getting the script to start on boot. when it is called via crontab the system calls do not work, Looks like I get to deep dive that call.

—-Update —-

To get the script to work, I had to start up pulseaudio daemon. It appears that the daemon is started on login. since I am starting my program via crontab….
I had to build a quick bash script to spawn it and then kick off my python program.

Fighting Fate by iMeiden. How I am making this work.

Design Idea

you can read my design statement in the youtube details.

Here is the details on how I am doing this.

  1. Buy a license of capture . I am just using 1 world of dmx in it.
  2. Learn how to use it.
  3. Hook up a lighting console to it. Capture supports almost everything and the kitchen sink. I use Art-Net with Lightfactory.
  4. Get a screen capture system. either with hardware or software. I use screenbits on the Microsoft app store.
  5. Make a video sync sound to it and show it off.
