I thought this might be interresting to my fellow DSP enthousiasts; Symphony™ SoundBite - Affordable Audio DSP Development Kit Product Summary Page Comes with free dev tools! Debugging through JTAG via USB. Very affordable. I bought a couple early this year. The board is based on a member of the well known 56k DSP chip family and is equipped with decent AK codecs. While those who have worked with mot56k before can jump right in, there might be quite a learning curve for others. Compared to emu10kx the DSP56371's instruction set can be quite intimidating as is it's initialization and features. This thing is very fast. @48kHz I was able to squeeze several cascaded effect algoritmes like guitar amp moddeller + Cab.moddeller + Chorus + tremelo + delay + Reverb etc. into it without any dropouts. The onboard RAM however is quickly used up by the delay lines. Although you can program the DSP in C (comes with C compiler), assembler is still the way to go. /Lex.
