I am designing an audio processor to give effects like reverb,flanger , echo etc using an FPGA . I presently have 2 systems of fpga in my college . One is the FPGA deveplopment board Mimas V2 Spartan 6 FPGA and MTE labs Spartan 6 FPGA . Is it realizable on these 2 boards or should i purchase an Altera board.

Many FPGA dev kits should work for the project. I would prefer a board with a dedicated audio codec. The Mimas V2 apparently hasn't it, just a simple PWM audio interface. Don't know about the MTE labs board.

Deciding for X or A is also a matter of being familar with familiar with one or the other toolchain. Personally I'm biased to Altera.

What about Digilent Atlys ?? Since i have previously worked on Xilinx ISE how difficult is it to adapt to Quartus if i buy Altera DE2 ?? Are there enough resources to help me out since i do not have a dedicated faculty who works on FPGA ??

Atlys and DE2 are both equipped with industry standard audio codecs.

Resource requirements depends on your project specification, e.g. storage time for reverb effects. Moderate sample sizes can be stored in FPGA internal memory, for large samples, external SRAM or DRAM can be used. All said boards have sufficient resources as far as I'm aware of.
