I was wondering if someone could give a little overview on the current (end 2016) situation on installing and running PD, l2-ork or purr-data on recent ARM boards, for somebody just getting into embedded systems (read: somebody terminal-literate, but not savvy enough to compile kernels).
The project is building a display-free modular sampler instrument, so GPIO, USB MIDI and USB audio I/O are paramount. Everything else (WIFI, BT, GPU etc) is secondary.
- Are more recent boards like Pine A64, Odroid C2, Chip (PRO?) or BBB worth considering?
- If so, what's the story on DSP performance/latency and RT kernel tweaks etc, compared to Pi3?
