    Ah, AVRs--old-school MPUs. ARM MCUs can run faster and usually have more capabilities.

    I'm not against using the occasion AVR or even 8-bit PIC for a quickie, but for serious stuff, ARMs are the ticket.

    I just saw a movie that reminded me of this thread; "The Dilemma". A side story in it is that an engineer and his colleague pitches an idea to General Motors that the problem with their new generation electric cars is that they are lacking and don't sound like a real car, using the vintage Dodge Challenger as one example of a great sounding car. So they create an acoustic and vibration generating system to fit inside GM's electric cars to emulate both the feel and sound of a V8 engine.

    So it is not just the sounds that are important in an emulation, its the sub-audible vibrations too.

    As long as the sound remains inside the car and doesn't pollute the environment like some guy with juiced-up bass on his ride cruising through your neighborhood at 3 AM... If the driver wants to damage his own hearing, I'm good with that.
