Abstract: Low cost, credit card size computers like the Raspberry Pi allow musicians to experiment with building software-based standalone musical instruments. The COSMO Project aims to provide an easy-to-use hardware and software framework to build Csound based instruments as hardware devices. Inside the instrument, the Csound software is running on a Raspberry Pi computer, connected to a custom designed interface board (COSMO-HAT) that allows to connect potentiometers, switches, LED's, and sensors. A classic stomp box design is used to demonstrate how Csound can be brought on stage as a stand-alone hardware effect instrument.
