Re: [fluid-dev] Small fast-start platform

I'd love to get a sub-5-second boot working FluidSynth demo going. I'm interested to work on this with somebody.

The problem with ultra-fast RPi booting is I'm not sure enough drivers/services will be running for FluidSynth to really work. Here are some fast-booting RPi claims:
- https://kevinboone.me/pi_minimal.html?i=2 - Truly minimal (3s) boot project for Pi.
- https://www.furkantokac.com/rpi3-fast-boot-less-than-2-seconds/

Also saw there's an embedded FluidSynth project but I'm not sure how active the project is, or of the compatibility with the latest cool dev boards like the latest Teensy board. Also I think cool stuff like reverb may not work on these.

Here's something else interesting - tiny Linux-Compatible Kernel - https://github.com/vvaltchev/tilck

And then I also thought this board could be ideal, it's a DSP audio platform in a single board. https://www.synthtopia.com/content/2022/01/25/electrosmith-intros-40-platform-for-creating-dsp-based-eurorack-modules/

I'm looking at the plot from systemd-analyze, which gives times from when the kernel starts, so I guess it doesn't include boot. If I time with a stopwatch it is about 25 seconds from power on until ready to play. Not that fast I guess.

Hi Bill.

That's not including boot I assume?
