1st post here, I hope this isn't inappropriate. I thought since this is open-source software that maybe one of the programmers wouldn't mind giving me a hint on this question:
What do you predict the minimum system requirements would be, to simply select, play, and pitch shift / time-stretch and speed-nudge an mp3 file from a USB stick? So like if you stripped away all the features from a system, leaving a DJ-able MP3player / Ipod.
My reason for asking, is that I'm an irate DJ. I don't want to DJ from a laptop - I just don't enjoy it, and my only other option that will have a good jog wheel/pitch accuracy costs £1500 and has a pair of God-forsaken CD players attached (thanks Pioneer, Numark, etc).
I reasoned, with the release of the raspberry pi minicomputer that costs $35, mp3 players cost $35, wouldn't it be really cool to be able to play, repitch and nudge songs as I play them, without paying hundreds of dollars for a shock resistant, fast-loading, repitchable/loop playback CD player? Isn't it quite a practical, logical idea?
