    Default Falcon pi cap on Pi 3B fm transmitter

    Has anyone had success with getting an fm transmitter to work with the pi cap and pi 3 b boards. To broadcast media not a tremendous distance either,Thanks in advance

    If you are using the PiCap to drive pixels on the Pi, you canít use the onboard sound on the Pi, you will need to use a USB sound card.

    Thanks Cap Murdoch and that would be to the usb on the Pi 3 board. Can you let me know of some that would be compatible with ras pi + pi cap with Fpp. Thanks Cap Murdoch

    Pretty much any usb sound card that says it is compatible with Linux will work. If you search for ďusb soundĒ on FalconChristmas.com you should find lots of amazon links to examples of ones that are known working. I have a pair of adafruit ones myself but you can get others cheaper off amazon.

    Just a recommendation from my own experience as well as. Others
    For decent sound from the PI CAP you definitely need the behringer 3.0 usb mixer, works as a sound card as well, it will bring the bass back into the music. Other wise music is hallow

    The SoundBlaster Play 3 is a great choice.
