Elk Audio on Nvidia Jetson Nano

Any plans to port Elk to the Jetson Nano? Very similar device to the Raspberry Pi and also had GPU cores which would be useful for implementing convolution or physical modeling synthesis algorithms.

we don’t have any plans right now to support the Jetson.

The similarities with the RPi stops pretty much in the 40-pin header but the SOC is completely different and it will require a lot of work for us to port Elk with the Xenomai low-latency kernel for it.

And why we see the potential of using GPUs for audio processing, our general philosophy is to try to get existing plugins ported easily to Elk, and so that is not a use case that’s high on our priority list. And without the GPU, the Jetsons will be an overkill in terms of price compared to other SOCs available.
