Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

The following paper showcases new integrated Pd-L2Ork system and its K12 educational counterpart running on Raspberry Pi hardware. A collection of new externals and abstractions in conjunction with the Modern Device LOP shield transforms Raspberry Pi into a cost-efficient sensing hub providing Arduino-like connectivity with 10 digital I/O pins (including both software and hardware implementations of pulse width modulation) and 8 analog inputs, while offering a number of integrated features, including audio I/O, USB and Ethernet connectivity and video output.
