Separate left/right players

Post by Crxporter » December 20th, 2018, 7:23 pm

I’m looking for a way to play songs separately from the left and right channel on a pi zero with a DAC on top. Would MPD be right for this?

I’d like to be able to send network requests from a client to the left channel and to the right channel. The DAC in question is PHAT DAC from pimoroni if that changes anything.

Thanks in advance for helping!

You can run two MPD daemons to play two different songs at a time, and then use an ALSA plugin to map left/right to separate ALSA devices. But I'm not an ALSA expert, I don't know exactly how to configure ALSA in such a way.
