learning plan

This is primarily a learning project. I want this device to exist, but I also want to use it as an excuse to learn more about audio electronics, embedded programming, board design, testing, etc. Plan is to take the long way to get there, and do the electronics design, physical design, firmware authoring, and testing myself. Expecting to build smaller sub-projects along the way to learn by doing & iteration.

Planning to do the work in-public and as open source hardware/software.
