I'm new here and I'm glad that I found this community. So hello everyone :) My background is in electrical engineering and I do music production as a hobby. I always wanted to get more into DSP and creation of sound itself so I decided to build my own little sampler. I have knowledge in electronics and also in programming but I've never programmed a uController before, so this whole thing is new to me.
To start, I would have the some questions to make sure XCore is the right choice for me.
As I said, I want to start with a simple sampler. So an array of buttons that just play a specifc sound each. For further development implementation of a simple sequencer would be nice.
I thought of just buying the StartKIT and doing all the examples available. Then maybe move on to a more advanced controller for the sampler project (if necessary).
- In general, is XMos the right choice for building samplers and synthesizers?
- Are any commercial synthesizer makers, such as Roland or NI, have an XMos implemented?
- Are there any DSP libraries available?
- What would be the best place to start? Are there any tutorials?
