    HG Wells - The Music Machine

    Made another squeezebox. Can't stop making them as it's so much fun and so easy with Raspberry pi's.
    It's Raspberry Pi Zero, Scroll Phat HD, PhatDAC. I've got 7 LEDs and 8 switches on the GPIO pins for differing functionality.
    Bought a glass dome with LEDS in the base already which I just connected up to a GPIO pin.
    Resistors and switches are hidden in the seperate base.

    It's running SqueezeLite and runs a python script and uses modules PyLMS and Spotipy.

    Works a treat with iPeng and Spotify.

    (I've had to edit the video as it was being blocked in the US for music copyright - so have cropped the end - hopefully OK now.)

    I'm really chuffed with it. It sounds great too!

    Cheers,

    Well it took around a week of evenings tinkering to make and a bit longer writing the software, but it wasnĺt long ago l was googling how to illuminate an LED using a Raspberry Pi. 🙂

    I was at Knebworth in '78 and '79, as well as other times. Used to live in Stevenage a couple of miles away, so we'd walk there. Don't know what happened to the posters though. Good times.

    Hi there,
    I never actually went to Knebworth. I lived near Reading, so that was the festival I regularly went to and didnĺt start going to gigs and festivals until around 1980, as Iĺm a mere youngster. 😄
    Amazingly I still have all my old posters from then in the loft, mainly Marillion and Genesis.
    Cheers,
    Foggy
