Trigger sampled Sounds

by soundog on Fri Apr 03, 2009 1:56 pm

I am working on a project for school, and want to trigger sampled drum sounds via an Atmel chip/Arduiono (or similar). The Wave Shield project here sounds promising, but I am not sure if its response time would be quick enough. Basically, I want to be able to hit a piezo transducer, and have it trigger a sampled drum sound. So, the response time needs to be very fast (minimal latency).

The sounds could be stored on an SD/MMC card, I suppose, if that would be fast enough .... but I was wondering if there might be a chip that I could load and store sampled sounds on .... preferably at least 16-bit so the sound is of good quality. The drum sounds would be of short duration (like snare and kick drums), and I would like to be able to store a number of sounds (6 or so), that I could trigger.

No midi would be required, I would just like to have the piezo trigger the sample sound as directly and cheaply as possible.

No amplification would be required on the device, I would just need a line-level signal, which would plug into a guitar amp or mixer.

Thank you in advance for any ideas of components that might get me to my goal.

Didn't you ask this same question in the general project help forum?

Yes, I was not sure what was proper. I am sorry if this was bad.
