I built a Sampler!

Post by freshnelly » Fri Jun 12, 2015 5:48 pm

Wow! Some said it couldn't be done, but I've designed and built a sampler using one of those SDRAMs on EBay, a PIC chip and and Arduino. It's awesome to play with and does everything I want it to do.

It's really tiny so it'll fit inside the Show-In-A-Box panel to haul around to impromptu gigs.

I posted some samples if you want to check it out

That looks awesome! I'd love to do something like that myself one day.

I've always wanted to build a hardware sampler of my own with lots of knobs! Great work! You could put that in a eurorack format and sell them I bet.

I was just thinking about how you could cash in hard with a run of these in modular sizings.
It looks impressive and well designed, so congratulation :)

Now, for revision 2.0, get a bunch of analog filters chips and implement tunable filters :mrgreen:

Love it, It amazes me how much some one can get done when they put their mind to a goal.
