Hello all, A brief explanation on what got me started down this path.
I have been on a mission for the past couple of years, I got my studio set up exactly the way i want it. But I wanted a portable set up(been in the closet too long time to get out) , with small battery powered synths and samplers. I was going to get a sp404(I have two sp808's) but I got an iPad instead, I thought that it would replace the SP's but sadly it did not. While there are many many kool apps , they all seem to fall short in one area or another.
Then I said man I see these modular guys building synths, someone has had have built a sampler. Found loads of diy samplers.
Then wala !!! The Rasberry Pi, I discounted this little micro computer years ago when it first came out, really didn't know what all the hoopla was about. Then I came across SunVox http://www.warmplace.ru/soft/sunvox/ , this a great software that you can test out for free on your windows or mac and best of all it runs on Rasberry Pi . And so begins my path to the diy looper/sampler/synth all based on the Sun Vox engine which will be totally upgradeable running on the RasberryPi3 platform.With 7 inch capacitive touchscreen and 4x4 button matrix. I have ordered all the necessary parts and they should all be in by mid next week.
Best of all I will document the entire process , oh by the way total cost $130
So stay tuned and heres a lil mock up I did in Paint
And most of the parts came in, just waiting on micro sd card
And here is the case that I will add wood sides to
