PKSampler 0.3 Beta

PKSampler project is a live-dj tool.
PKSampler project is a live-dj tool. It is different from other "live DJ tools" in that it focuses on allowing the user to mix lots of samples at once. The focus is on a simple touchscreen interface that allows quick access to user supplied loops and samples.


The focus is on layering loop-based music using pre-defined samples and sequences with minimal effort. That means starting/stopping loops on the beat and controlling them with low-latency. A real-time timeline will be used - so all music time is relative like a typical pattern-mode, not song-mode.


Main focus: high-performance python music engine.
realiable real-time performance
low-latency for in-out events
python (or easily wrappable) interface
good media support (wav/ogg/mp3/...)
tempo setting
basic sample-sequencing
reasonably fast peak level values


I've decided I only want to focus my effort on the python side of this project. So, I scrapped pkaudio (shame, shame), and am looking for a replacement. It's hard-going, but I just know something's out there. I have a romantic relationship with the idea of finding a good low-level python audio library, and writing the real-time music in python, but I think that's a far-off dream, and I'd rather just use someone else's code.

4.0 needs python interface
pySonic builds fine on IA32
3.74 no amd64 support
pySonic is hard to build on ppc
