The Alles Mesh Networking Synthesizer Introduction

Synthesist Floyd Steinberg, in his latest video takes a look at the Alles mesh networking synthesizer for the Raspberry Pi – a many-speaker distributed music synthesizer, using UDP multicast over WiFi.

“In this video, I install the opensource software version of the “Alles” networking synthesizer on a Raspberry Pi,” notes Steinberg, “and do some Python programming to create a network of synthesizers, playing a very specific, well-known song.”

While Steinberg’s demo uses well-known song, he notes that the idea of a ‘mesh networking synthesizer’ could be ideal for creating original public music installations.

Source code and project details for Alles are available in Github.
