MS on Raspberry Pi?
#1
Since the only mentioning of the Raspberry Pi (Raspi) gadgets dates some years back I'd like to bring it back to focus once again:

With the recent Raspi V 3B+ there is quite some power on the board, and a readily available ecosystem that could feed any HDMI monitor for display, with the touch functionality available by parallel USB cabling. Pedals may be attached via Bluetooth.

Regarding quite large, quite cheap and quite low powered monitors with 12 V supply lines, together with increasingly cheap powerbanks, there is a very good potential to set up a very interesting large wireless score display for a real 2-pager that would not require a microscope to read.

This being said - what about running MS on a Raspi?   Blush 

Cheers,
Petra

Check out a stick computer with a monitor.
Dell Latitude 13.5" 2-in-1 Win 10
Samsung Note Pro SM-P900 12.2 Android 5.0.2
Asus TF700T, os = CROMi-kk_R1 KitKat-4.4.4r2-CM11-US DEODEX, Based on Android 4.4.4

Stick computers may be a solution, but you are stuck with the operating system they are delivered with and won't be able (at least this is my fear) to upgrade the system beyond the one you once bought it with.

I installed an Android 7.1.2 on a Raspi yesterday and succeeded in putting MS to it as well. And yes, it worked with foot pedals and mouse. But the response of the whole system is kind of slooow, much slower than would be if MS could be used natively on a basic Raspbian.

Apart from that, a scan through a larger series of 22" screens revealed that they  tend to be not so lightweight as I had hoped. Has anyone in here tried to use smaller screens as double-paged displays? I'd like to read some opinions on that.

Btw., judging from the number of views of this thread there seems to be quite some interest in the topic.   Angel

how about a chromebook or a chromebit?  I use a chromebook that folds flat, and it's got a USB-C port where I can plug in an external monitor (and get power, video, and touch over the same wire).  It runs mobilesheets (from the play store) really fast, has active pen input, and the battery lasts forever.  I got a 12" screen, but larger screens are available OR you can just use the external monitor as your primary and choose whatever size you want.  It's a really nice option.

Sounds interesting, but to get a two sheet side-by-side view with 20+" for a sensible cost frame only the chrome bit solutions seems to be persuasive. Big Grin

I'll forward the suggestion to my music partner!

Thanks for sharing,

Just make sure you get something that has access to Android apps and the Google play store.  Good luck!
