hopefully done with building this. it's a guitar FX processor running on a raspberry pi, with an arduino midi interface to control it, built into a little briefcase thing. took about a week to get it working all the way, still bugs to iron out. the main software it uses is Jack audio connection kit for audio routing, and Guitarix for the actual processing. the RPi also is a wifi access point that you connect to and you can then access a web UI to control functions I couldn't map to hardware.

got the midi controller working fully yesterday, today I've been working on getting the raspberry pi to cooperate and headlessly run jack and guitarix, map the midi keys to guitarix, and become an access point to connect to the guitarix webui. no luck on any front so far. getting this to work would be hard enough with a gui, but I'm trying to do it over ssh lmao this is masochistic

My cousins live in an absolute rural hellhole on the Eastern shore, but because it's such a hellhole, there's cheap houses with a lot of cheap land, and since there's so many little streams and rivers running throughout the area, a lot of the houses are waterfront

This is all to say I went kayaking on a stream that smelled like farm runoff but it's ok cause it was pretty
