DIY eurorack CLK / RST generator for Ableton LINK

After Ableton released the source code / SDK for, applications and devices that use it quickly started to appear.
The pink SPINK0 is a patchwork from shaduzlabs pink-0, a CLK / RESET generator based on the Rasperry Pi Zero W. His source code is the core of this project. After a lot of tweaking, tuning & changing, a working LINK connection could be established. I then squeezed the PiZero into its new dress, consisting of a set of three PCBs that all sandwich together to form a eurorack module.
Vive la mitraillette :)
Since the setup procedure of all the tools needed, to and for the build, is not a too trivial task. And on top of that you’d also need to make some changes/tweaks to the original source files to get everything running, since some pins and HW elements have changed. So I decided to distribute the adapted source directly embedded in the working OS-image for the raspberry, all set up.
I also added some bash scripts to easily switch between different network environments.
This thingy is a v0.1.0 patchwork. so please don’t expect stability over centuries. There may be a slip here or there. but it is definitively a handy and very usable toy to jam freely together with your friends!
But hey – code is opensource. maybe someone comes along and implements the MIDI out or gets encouraged to compile a preemt_rt enabled kernel for the system… or other features get added/implemented.
Best operated in closed networks, updates, backups & Co. of other devices disabled!!!
Special thanks to shaduzlabs for this awewsome code!!
