RBPi2 is not longer supported by official zynthian SD images. If you want to use a different computing board model, you have to build your own SD image using the setup scripts.

RBPi3 is supported but may be not powerfull enough if you plan to use many sound engines in the same time.
 +
RBPi4 is the best choice.

It's doable for advanced users !

If you want to use a different computing board model, you have to build your own SD image using the setup scripts. You can start from [https://github.com/zynthian/zynthian-sys/blob/master/scripts/setup_system_rbpi_raspbian_lite_buster.sh here] on top of minimal Debian Buster install. This script and the [https://github.com/zynthian/zynthian-sys/blob/master/scripts/zynthian_envars.sh environment variables] should be adapted to match your board.

You are suffering from underpower. You need a reliable Power Supply Unit and a strong USB cable. The official RaspberryPi PSU bundle is the one that works perfectly. And it's available in the [https://shop.zynthian.org/shop/product/raspberry-pi-15-3w-usb-c-power-supply-389 Zynthian shop].

 +
=== Loading engines or soundfonts is really slow ===
 +
 +
Be sure that you're using a high quality SD card.
 +
Also, don't expect too much if you're running ZynthianOs on a RBPi3.

=== Despite I have a good PSU, a good SD card and a RBPi4, my Zynthian hang ===

Maybe you have let the VNC server running while playing. Forwarding the sound engines native gui over the network is ressource consuming. You should consider disabling the VNC server.

It depends a lot. Building a recent official zynthian kit doesn't require soldering, only basic tinkering (plugging wires, screw-driving, etc.). The official zynthian software runs out-the-box and you shouldn't need to use the command line. That being said, being comfortable with Linux command line helps in solving problems.

If you love tinkering and have specific needs, Zynthian is an excellent basis to taylor a unique piece of hardware.
