The chip actually features (at least) four CPUs:

- The main ARM processor usually running Linux
- two PRU processors

- a small processor for power managing

I suppose to use Reaper with the Bela A/D D/A system, some kind of ALSA or similar driver needs to be done. Same needs to work together with the realtime part of the OS.
But with that the promised low latency will not be accomplished.
