Hi I am new to this forum, so I'll explain first rapidly why I came here. So since a year or two I want to build a open-source/open-hardware groovebox for dfferent reason, such as the price paid for music hardware, the very limited evolution of software functionality in recent music hardware(for example the korg electribe 2 isn't updated with new functionality therefore it rans a numeric firmware) and the last reasonn is that there's not a real open-source/open-hardware solution covering this field. Project such as Monome or Critter and Guittari are not the most optimized to run a groovebox based patch.

Then in order to find acheived this project Ive experimented different solution, first went and tried picoloop, a nanoloop clone coded in C++, but for some reason It craches on Raspberry Pi. After having gave up I finally learned more about Pure Data, and I found a patch coded by Martin Birkmann that was almost the exact thing I was looking for. I tried making a fork of this patch last year and because I lacked knowledge in Pure Data I gave up, but with the lockdown I found some time to try again to fork it and this time I got closer and closer to what I wanted. Then this week I tried to get the patch to run with less CPU usage, but I failed. Once again I got something that runs but will crash on RPI. So open a thread on another forum hoping someone will help me find a solution, in vain...

Well, sorry for the long introduction, I'm now considering developping my program on a different environement than pure data, I consider mayebe using ChucK, because it's open source and text based. But before I left my pure data project behind I want to know a few things about this language. First how well does it perform ? It's comparable to Pure Data or does it runs faster ? Does it runs fine on raspberry Pi ? Then, is the syntax is close to C(which I used in the past) ? Finaly, what I'd like about Pure Data is that there's a huge community behind it, a vast documentation, a large numbers of patch you can download and fork ect... If I start again my projecrt I would like to find already functional sequencers, synth, sampler, fx and so on, could you recomend me a website where I could find people sharing their ChucK code ?

I think I'm done here asking questions about ChucK, have a good day.
