More RAM means more samples, but 32 MB of samples should really be more than enough, right?

Definitely. I made an entire ~25 minute album in one piggy save and it was less than 20 MB

Are you guys compiling this thing or just running the 10 year old ghetto builds? I have had no luck compiling properly, but I'm a total C++ idiot.

We run ghettos.

just a call out, piggy was built for 32bit os's, and i never got it to run on modern 64bit rasbian images because linux is hard.

That's kinda where I'm at.  I made a bunch of tweaks based on semi-educated guesses and got it going. It builds, it runs, but when I try to load a song it crashes every time. I ran Valgrind on it and it seems to be a 32 vs 64 thing in SDL (not JACK, thankfully). So I need to figure out how to bridge that.

Did you try the stuff from this post earlier in this thread?

I think I did, and that stuff wont load on 64bit os's easily. It should be rebuilt, which is probably a huge can of worms.

Yup herr is right.

I found an old branch where I'd done similar things and it actually doesn't crash but it makes no sound. I'm too stupid for this, I'm going back to SuperCollider.

It might be good for ergonomics. We're sitting bent over small screens way too much already, it's probably good to take a break from it when making music.
I've been thinking about getting a small-ish HDMI screen for the rpi for some time.
