building an appliance?

I was wondering if its currently possible to easily build a software appliance using linuxsampler on linux.

My idea is to have a small lcd monitor with a NUC mounted on the back with midi driven by a kawai VPC1, audio provided by a bass amp + something like a PA type speaker. I would like to be able to drive the whole thing initially with just a mouse but perhaps also later move to a touchscreen.

I already played around with getting linuxsampler to run on a small arm machine but I'm not convinced there's enough horsepower there to comfortably keep up in the sub 100usd range.

If anyone has done this (or something similar) I'm curious how it's working out.
