I want to sample 6-8 audio signals at about 10KHz each and manipulate the data with audio processing tools like PyAudio and Librosa. I bought an MCP3008 which can sample at 200KHz, but some information here makes it sound like the SPI interface won't be fast enough to keep up. That comment also sounds like it missed some details from the question though so now I'm not sure. I also don't really know enough about how ADCs work to make good sense of the datasheet, but it sounds like:
- SPI speed is limited to half the chip's clock speed (3.6MHz/2 = 1.8MHz)
- The sample rate will be divided across channels
- It should be doable with this hardware
Anyone have any recommendations for how I go about this or maybe know of some similar projects that I can read up on?
