libDaisy or DaisyDuino?

I’m starting with Daisy. And not sure what to use: libDaisy or DaisyDuino. So i’m curious what the differences are. Can you reach the same with both and is it just a matter of taste?

My goal in the end is some sort of sampler / looper. So a dealbreaker from one of those libraries would be loading/saving from SD card.

Background: I’m a (frontend) developer but i have also experience with Arduino / Teensy and C++. I don’t like the Arduino IDE, so i would like to develop in VSCode. I allready have everything setup. And have some examples running.

libDaisy+DaisySP is the native C++ programming system for the Daisy. DaisyDuino is a simplified system for Arduino IDE users.
If you’re already a C++/VSCode programmer, libDaisy+DaisySP is the way to go.
The only real advantage of DaisyDuino is access to the huge selection of Arduino libraries supporting sensors, etc. This can be quite handy.


Thanks, that makes sense, and very clear.

Just started today with first steps. With a Seed and some buttons/LEDs/pots. Made a simple looper with adjustable speed (also negative speed so direction is reversed) and adjustable length. And in the meantime have setup everything so i can work smoothley.

Using VSCode, libDaisy & DaisySP.
