SamplerBox

An open-source audio sampler project based on RaspberryPi.

Website: www.samplerbox.org

Install

You need a RaspberryPi and a DAC (such as this 6€ one that provides really high-quality sound – please note that without any DAC, the RaspberryPi's built-in soundcard would produce bad sound quality and lag).

  1. Install the required dependencies (Python-related packages and audio libraries):
sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get -y install python-dev python-numpy cython python-smbus portaudio19-dev
git clone https://github.com/superquadratic/rtmidi-python.git ; cd rtmidi-python ; sudo python setup.py install ; cd .. 
git clone http://people.csail.mit.edu/hubert/git/pyaudio.git ; cd pyaudio ; sudo python setup.py install ; cd ..
  1. Download SamplerBox and build it with:
git clone https://github.com/josephernest/SamplerBox.git ;
cd SamplerBox ; sudo python setup.py build_ext --inplace
  1. Run the soft with python samplerbox.py.

  2. 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
