New releases – Raspberry Pi 4 and Ubuntu 19

Along with the recent release of McLaren Labs rtpmidi version 0.5.0, we have new ports to Raspberry Pi 4 Raspbian OS “Buster” and also Ubuntu 19.10 “Eoan Ermine”.

We are especially excited to release the port to Raspbian “Buster!” The Raspberry Pi 4 has more computing power and higher bandwidth connectivity. This makes the Raspberry Pi 4 even more exciting for music and media creation. And now, with McLaren Labs rtpmidi you can send MIDI messages over Ethernet and WiFi to a Raspberry Pi 4.
