have anyone done something like this with Pi, and would it be too complicated for a noob? I mean things like these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effects_unit
I'm just curious about the possibilities and want a discussion about how it could be done. I guess there is already programs done for Linux that can handle different effects. But how about the "soundcard" on the Pi? Is it powerful enough? What components would be needed and where can I find them?
The OS wouldn't need any GUI and it would be great if it was quick to start right after the power was turned on.
I guess it would be really cool to have the possibility to program your own sound in some program in linux to use with the pedal/unit. Maybe such things already exists, I haven't used a pedal since mid 90s and I guess there must have happened a lot since then.
