By day Richard Saville is a 28 year old Business Analyst from Southend-on-Sea. By night, like some kind of rubbish superhero, he’s ‘Average Man’. Richard’s alter-ego is dedicated to sharing his journey with the Raspberry Pi on his blog On his blog’s About page, Richard. With his blog Richard has taken many of the best bits of his online research – filling in all the holes that many tutorials and guides tend to assume you’re aware of – and puts it all together for the everyday user to enjoy.

During the recording we talk about his local Raspberry Pi Jam event, his favourite blog posts and projects and cover a few of the new things he’s doing, including some insight into a Kickstarter campaign he’s preparing. More details on that when we get them.

As exclusively reported back in July, Sonic Pi 2 is the hotly anticipated music application for Raspberry Pi. “Sonic Pi v1.0 was really just a fun toy created to try out a new approach to engaging children with programming… kind of an audio version of Logo,” said Aaron.

However Sonic Pi v2.0 is no longer a toy – it’s now a fully capable musical instrument. The timing has been completely reworked, you can now play samples, there’s an amazingly powerful yet simple effects system and perhaps most importantly you can now live code with Sonic Pi. This means you can modify the code whilst it’s still running Not only does Sam Aaron reveal that Sonic Pi 2 is out now on the Raspberry Pi, but he also lets us know that it’s also available on Mac OS X too – brilliant for parents to use and help their kids get to grips with the new software, or for enthusiasts to take their musical compositions to the next level with the aid of more powerful hardware.
