hey tesla/
does anyone know how to make an interactive audio installation using Arduino or Raspberry Pi to trigger pre-recorded loops that synchronize?

would love to create but dont know how!

Should I be on another board?

Think engineers would have a field day tho!

Maybe /m/, that's a busier board, you're more likely to find some sound engie or roadie or DJ who knows how to set up stuff like that.

What's your familiarity with programming and setting up software packages you've never used before? I'd say you need either a good intermediate knowledge of C++, or Java (takes more packages to get working) or whatever language they might have compatibility with now.
On the Arduino I'm sure you could copy paste from preexisting MIDI projects and customize it a bit. It would still be best to have fundamental understanding of the syntax and semantics of the language.
Now you could allows hook that to an old laptop and have the little MIDI controller you essential just made defined on your DAW.
If you insist on it being on the Rasberry Pi, you either got to find a preexisting similar project and configure it to your needs. You'll need a simple audio library that supports simultaneous sounds. I'm not sure how well the R-Pi can handle audio processing, if it's giving it to much trouble you might have to reduce the sample rates of the audio files.

So either some intermediate programming skills, or just try diving balls deep into the preexisting tutorials and projects and mangling them till they work for you.

yes i have a rasp pi and while it's a little piece of shit, I just need to get a case for it and install a touchpad.
It runs linux and will absolutely handle homebrew audio stuff, as you can absolutely add sensors like mic and audio in and there's both a 3.5 jack and an hdmi port that does audio out to the tv system.
right now I can play piano on my keyboard, mp3 & youtube.
add a midi pad and you can do digital effects with like garageband or fender fuse, something like that
I wouldn't bother with arduino

Get a raspberry pi 3, learn to set it up so it runs headless.
I'd use this for the task at hand, but your approach will differ.

Well at least you have to know some programming language already, right?
