FS#10192 - Drumkit / Drumpad / Sample Trigger / Instrument Plugin

This plugin searches in the .rockbox/rocks/apps/drumkit directory for .raw sound files, loads them into memory, and assigns the keys to play them, creating a drumkit /sample trigger / instrument out of the player. Currently only designed for the Sansa e200.

Room for improvement:

- Add keymaps for all
Allow multiple samples to be played at the same time (by using
Allow for a variety of sound file types to be
Find a better name

How About you call it “DrumBox”?

Yes, A synthesis of drummachine and rockbox would be good. either drumbox, rockmachine, rockdrum, drumrock... or simply call it drummachine, cause that’s what it’s supposed to be, right?

It could be whatever you want, really. If you put a bunch of keyboard samples in the folder it would sound like a keyboard.

Nice idea. I think it’s obviously most suited to percussion since we don’t have enough buttons to manage very complex melodies on these DAPs. A simple “Drum kit” might suffice for a name. I think there’s no reason to be slavish to the Foobox/Rockfoo nomenclature, though drumbox doesn’t seem too bad.

By .raw you just mean raw PCM?

Chronon: Yes, raw PCM. I’m looking into multiple codec implementation now.

Updated with keymap for the c200.

What is the possibility of this on the 5th Gen?
