Let me introduce myself, I'm Daniele, from Torino, Italy, I'm a computer programmer and musician (keyboardist/electronic producer). I want to start a project with Arduino but I don't know electronics (just some soldering skills to repair cables...)
So I need help to understand how to do that and if it's feasable or not with arduino and other component.
To be as cleaver and brief as possible, this is my idea:
A sample player box (with 44.1khz/16bit stereo resolution , with eventually downsampling), using as an interface a LED display, an encoder to select samples from an sd card, one button to select one and one button to toggle the sample play/stop, with eventually a lead that indicates the state of playing.
This could be a starting point project espandable with midi connection and more buttons and so on...
Please, can you give me advices if this could be done and wich arduino hw and components I need?
Thanks in advance!
