An open-source audio sampler project based on RaspberryPi.

Website: www.samplerbox.org

Install

SamplerBox works with the RaspberryPi's built-in soundcard, but it is recommended to use a USB DAC (such as this 6€ one) for better sound quality.

  1. Install the required dependencies (Python-related packages and audio libraries):

    sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get -y install git python-dev python-pip python-numpy cython python-smbus portaudio19-dev libportaudio2 libffi-dev
    sudo pip install rtmidi-python pyaudio cffi sounddevice
    
  2. Download SamplerBox and build it with:

    git clone https://github.com/josephernest/SamplerBox.git
    cd SamplerBox ; sudo python setup.py build_ext --inplace
    
  3. Run the soft with python samplerbox.py.

  4. Play some notes on the connected MIDI keyboard, you'll hear some sound!

(Optional) Modify samplerbox.py's first lines if you want to change root directory for sample-sets, default soundcard, etc.

How to use it

See the FAQ on www.samplerbox.org.

ISO image

The ready-to-use ISO images available on www.samplerbox.org are built with the help of a script that can be found in isoimage/samplerbox_iso_maker.sh.
