SamplerBox

SamplerBox is a pocket-sized sound module based on Raspberry Pi for use with MIDI devices in your bedroom, studio, or on the stage. It is completely open-source which means it is forever evolving, making it a formidable alternative to other commercial MIDI samplers and expanders on the market.

How it works

SamplerBox uses MIDI messages from a connected MIDI keyboard or device to trigger digital audio samples (wave files) which are then converted to an analogue audio signal. The software has been designed to run on Raspberry Pi single-board computers. A single-board computer is a tiny computer that contains a CPU processor, GPU, ROM, RAM, Ethernet, USB and HDMI ports. They can be programmed to do almost anything: run an operating system, operate a security system, navigate aircraft, take over the world. In the case of SamplerBox its sole purpose is to play music!

Once SamplerBox is running, it will find sample-set directories on a connected USB drive and add them to a setlist. SamplerBox will then attempt to load sample files based on a file naming convention or filenames and rules defined in a :ref:`definition.txt file <definition-files>`.
