Not sure this is the correct category, please move it is necessary.
I have built and used a couple of DIY ARM music devices, including the axoloti and the Zynthian. They are very different but both very cool. The Zynthian is the closest to the intent of ELK, but is not quite as thorough in its development philosophy. They dont feel like they can make requirements of plugins like “be headless” because they just want to use the plugins they can find.
I have a particular project in mind, and if I was doing this as my job I think I would find ELK a very good fit. I would like to create a dedicated box that is a MIDI sequencer, and if CV is available, that is even better.
I could just take an existing piano roll MIDI DAW like Reaper, which is already cross compiled for ARM, and run that on a RPI 3 B +, and for midi it would probably do the job, but I would like something a bit more purpose built.
It is more pragmatic to integrate existing code instead of writing it one’s self. Does anyone know of any existing project or tool that has either the headless MIDI sequencer part, or the GUI piano roll part?
Also, what is the expected latency for MIDI on ELK? I saw the estimates for audio in another topic.
Also, I ordered the dev kit so I am not just kicking tires.
