believe it or not, i have been working on it for the past 6 months, even though there was ne log update. I was mostly doing the very boring stuff, making simple things like controll mapping and stuff. I was programming everything on the computer, and a few weeks ago it was time to try and make it work on the pi. I had to create a HAL for the pi, and after searching and fixing some very nasty bugs that only occurred on the hardware, i finally got everything up and running. It was a bit of an educated gamble if it would run good on the hardware because i had no idea if there were any serious performance issues on the hardware. I was developing on an arm that much much better, but was hapoy to find out that everything worked really well. Right now im finishing the file io access api of my little "not-an-operating-system", after that, i should start to implement a midi api, and then i can finally focus on actually making something that you can use, the samer itself. I have already made a waveform control with zooming and all. I'm looking forward to giving more info, but at the moment i dont feel i have a lot of usefull stuff to tell.
