Getting started with DSP for audio - sanity check please

So I would like to get started with a DSP for audio processing for a speaker. Please let me know if what I'm doing makes sense and not crazy. And feel free to offer any suggestions and improvements.


I want to build a DSP to implement some active filters like crossovers, parametric EQ, compressors and FIR for 8 channels of audio. I'm thinking of getting a EVAL-21489-EZLITE board and use SigmaStudio and all their built in libraries to build what I want to start off just to get something to work.


Will this be as straightforward as just buying the evaluation board, hooking it up to my computer, drawing the DSP workflow on SigmaStudio, hit compile and boom it'll work?


Also, I noticed in SigmaStudio, the bass synth algorithm is available for the ADAU1701, but not available for ADAU1452 or ADSP214xx. Anyone know what's up with that? In fact, the ADSP214xx is missing a lot of algorithms that are available to the ADAU1701 and ADAU1452.
