samples directly on SD card

Ludwig posted Jul 8, 12:18:

for my project i'm trying to put diffenent samples on each key of the keyboard.. the easiest way seemed to be exchanging the *.wavs in the /rootfs/0 saw/ folder .. BUT more than 700 MB isn't possible..(although the sd card is 16gb!)
is there a way to solve this?

Hello Ludwig,
System can be extended to SD size with standard linux utils fdisk and ext2fs.
You can also consider looking at my fork at homspace/samplerbox, which (amongst other extras) defines an extra NTFS partition on the SD card for samples only - leaving the rootfs exclusively for the system..
This way you can also access the sample space when the SD is inserted in a windows machine.
Extending needs other method in this case, but that's explained on the site.
