workshop

Build your own sampler/looper!

This is some text inside of a div block.

Educational Program

Let’s make a micro looper, and learn how to use buffers for recording, playing and manipulating sounds in real time on the Daisy Seed microcontroller.

Workshop structure

What will we learn?

Case study: Build looper with controllable loop start / length / pitch shift

In this workshop we will build a sampler/looper on the Daisy Seed microcontroller. We will be working in Arduino, using the Daisyduino, but we'll also touch on C/C++ programming topics. You can already check the code out here > Synthux Github - Daisy Sampler / Looper.

Understanding the Daisy Seed buffer

The Daisy Seed has a 64MB SDRAM chip built-in. This chip can be used to record and play our samples in real time. We'll learn how to set up the buffer and understand circular buffer basics.

Tweaking knob behaviour and mapping

How should our knobs behave? We'll learn how to define the range of the knobs, define the curve response, directional or bidirectional and more.

Getting ready

How to prepare?

All you need is a computer. If you have the Daisy Seed you can install the toolchain on your machine beforehand. You can also check out the code we will be working with on this Github page.
