Hi Bert!

Welcome to chuck-dev.

It is interesting that you are thinking of porting ChucK to TI DSP
platform.  We recently tried this, porting ChucK to run on the TI 6711
card.  It wasn't a real port - we basically wrote out a ChucK-ified c
program that was cross-compiled into the board's instruction set.
It was a proof of concept and was horrendously wasteful since we
were essentially running virtual instructions on the embedded system.

This has a lot of potential - we can use the ChucK timing and 
for very precise, real-time embedded programming.  Our test worked,
synthesized audio, stereo 24000Hz, using shreds and for fun, we 
the audio to the onboard LED's.  All this ran in real-time.  It was
promising because this was don't extremely inefficiently because
we were emulating the ChucK VM on the board - so there is like
infinite room for improvement - even with better c generation,
and getting rid of the emulation =  several orders magnitude

any way, the results of our experiment:


it is very horrendous, but promising.  What do you think?
