Juce running on Raspbian (Raspberry pi)


I’m new to Juce and Raspberry devices, I was thinking on building a device based on this platform. I do not have much experience developing Linux applications tho. How difficult is to run/compile a standalone JUCE app on Linux(NO GUI, or Basic one)?, are there any dependencies / known issues? Is JUCE a good alternative for the Raspberry pi or should I try other Audio Libraries?.



JUCE is an excellent choice. I can’t personally comment on any dependencies or issues as I’ve not had a play with a Pi myself, but I’ve seen the Equator engine (exactly the same one that powers ROLI’s Equator synth) running flawlessly.


This post is a good starting point:


Equator looks super nice!, I guess it is better to start with the simple tutorials and then try creating an Audio Application project or even a Console app in my case cause i might not need UI for now.


I recommend Ubuntu Mate over Raspbian for a Linux distribution on the Pi. With Ubuntu Mate, plug and play just works with USB audio devices. You also get Armv7 instructions. I ported Tracktion to the Raspberry Pi and it was relatively painless.


I’ll give a try to the tutorials first on my mac and then try to port those examples to linux
