Hello from LA & VS Code Q's

Post by iandmacgregor »

Hi All,
I am a pro audio design engineer in Los Angeles. Now diving into XMOS development with an XK Audio 316 MC kit, intending to do pro audio interface development. My embedded background is with STM32 and PIC microcontrollers and their IDEs. I have been using VS code for STM32 development recently with success, so I have followed instructions for Xtools & VS code setup.

Is anyone else using VS code for XMOS development? Any pitfalls a relative beginner should know about?

I see xTIMEcomposer referenced everywhere, but it sounds like it is now obsolete - is that correct? Is it a big hurdle to start from "scratch" with VS code? Would there still be value in installing & learning TIMEcomposer?

I have been able to write & run the very simple tutorial code in the XMOS VS code setup instructions, but there is a pretty large gap between those tutorials and a simple USB audio interface app. I will be trying to get from point A to point B! As I dig in, I am sure I will have some more specific questions.

Thanks,
Ian

Hi,

this video shows how to setup a custom extension to run XC over VS code.
I haven't personally tried it yet, but I intend to give it a shot.
