Great project! For setting it up manually, do you have any instructions for getting pyaudio working, as with the stock raspbian and default pyaudio install the callback doesn't work, I think you need to add a few modules and recompile pyaudio to get that going, any ideas?
Ps. any idea what latency to expect at low polyphony and low sample rates on a Rasp A+?

Hi @LW, you're totally right: doing
apt-get install pyaudio on Raspbian (Wheezy version) will install an outdated version of pyaudio (which doesn't support callback).
So you have to another way, see here :
sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get -y install python-dev python-numpy cython python-smbus portaudio19-dev
git clone https://github.com/superquadratic/rtmidi-python.git ; cd rtmidi-python ; sudo python setup.py install ; cd ..
git clone http://people.csail.mit.edu/hubert/git/pyaudio.git ; cd pyaudio ; sudo python setup.py install ; cd ..

Thanks - very useful. I had got it working through trial and error, but nice to have the compact/repeatable instructions. I had it running on A+ by the way which is pretty cool.
