Author(s)  Jan Rene

What is it?

We have this awesome sound system at the space. It is attached to a raspberry pi running an instance of mpd (music player daemon). Please DO NOT change ANYTHING on the X32 Console, the amplifiers or unplug any cables. You will die.

How to use

You can control mpd using a media player client software. We recommend gmpc for Mausschubsers and ncmpc for the nerds.

ncmpc -h

MQTT Control

The MPD can also be controlled via MQTT. Therefore, we have a service running that translates MQTT messages into MPD commands. It's currently running on the PrinterBot machine (, and the code that's used can be found at


  • mumalab/mpd/command: understands the following commands: play, pause, next, previous, toggle, volume up, volume down
