I'm thinking about doing a small run of these but just put one up on ebay to see what the response would be.

It's a pi-based all-in-one LGPT unit with a 5in screen.

it boots directly into LGPT and can use any project/sample files off a usb thumbdrive created in mac/windows/linux or you can make track directly on the unit itself.

I'm including a usb based snes clone controller and a cheapie usb audio card (that's way better than onboard audio)

Probably not going to answer a ton of linux-ey or tech questions here but PM me if you have any questions about the unit itself.

This is really cool! Glad to see you are donating some money to marc! Would you ever be interested in posting the disk image, for people who already own a pi?

Also it would be cool if you ever added serial midi out to the box:

agreed. if you were to do more, might also be worth doing some in a smaller size as well, if feasible.. like 3" screen

Thanks!  I'm going to be making a laser cut 15in vesa monitor mounted version with some decent recycled NEC monitors I picked up.  Once I get that going in a few weeks I'll probably post the image for that version (it's a bit more universally usable) on google drive or something for everyone.   This first one was just to make something portable and solid enough to work well.   I'll look into serial midi for sure, i think it's do-able even as an add on since the pi has several usb ports

This version can actually use a cheap chinese USB midi adapter i may include in the future but it should be plug and play right now. i'll test mine later this week

Nice build man. +1 for supporting Nostromo.

Cool!

I've been thinking of going Piggy-Pi for syncing with my circuit-bent 505, this is really inspiring.
