Help selecting proper micro/dsp for project
Hello TI community! First off - I hope I am allowed to bring my question into this forum, I'm not sure I'm in the right section but I couldn't find anything more appropriate =/.
My names Greg, I'm currently studying in Computer Engineering at school. In order to complete my course of studies, I need to write a detailed technical report on an engineering project of my choice. Being a musician as well, I decided that I am going to construct an electronic drum kit.
My idea will use piezo sensors to detect when a specific drum is struck, and then will output a sound sample of that respective drum. I'd like to use a TI microcontroller or DSP as the control unit for this project. I was hoping somebody might be able to help me decide which parts will best suit my needs.
In doing some reading, I found this website that demonstrates using a Piezo sensor to detect a drum hit, and passing that to an Alesis drum machine. I will not be able to use the Alesis drum machine, but I would like to create a simplified version of this.
If anyone can help me pick out a microcontroller/dsp and development board that I could use for this project it would be very much appreciated!
I do hope someone can help you here...I moved your question to the etc forum as there is no general area for processor questions.
I did find this which may help you, its a training class on choosing the right processor.

Thanks for the reply, Foe.
Unfortunately, even with updated codec packages or using VLC media player, this video will not successfully play for me on multiple computers. The audio seems to be very low and distorted. Could somebody check if this video is working for them?Thanks,Greg
yup, got he training team looking at the file, if they get it working I will let you know
Has anyone been able to look at this video? I've been interested in working with an ARM Cortex processor but unsure if its suitable for my needs (processing audio outputs).
They pulled the video off the web but I dont think they have re-loaded it yet. Sorry
Is there any chance that this video has been updated, or can anyone here help me select something appropriate? I just need a control unit to sense for inputs, and then ouput sound samples - but I'm not sure which controllers are best suited for this or which will allow audio processing.
