Hello elk community,
I want to build a midi synced multitracker since other than the model12 from tascam there are no hardware based simple to use multitracker with midi sync left on the market. 1010music has a device which looks fine.
However I am wondering if I can build a headless tracker with simple recording capabilities like old adat HD24 systems with sushi. Not sure if I need an embedded device or even a raspberry. A simple NUC would probably be sufficient with an external class compliant audio interface like tascams USB devices.
As controller I probably would use 1 of the countless midi controller available.
As a next step a timecode display and a custom hardware for punch in/out or volume adjustment would be nice.
I am wondering is this something sushi can do and is made for?
Like I said this should be as “headless” as possible and should feel like a hardware device. I am aiming at 16 or 24 inputs/outputs with 24 bit and 96khz. No extra DSP is needed (for now). Maybe a summing mix in stereo would be nice and maybe one day some compressors.
I would love your opinion on this project or should I just buy an outdated system from eBay? Do you see any problems and limitations or have any other suggestions?
Thanks for your time
