Of course. Just start with the build recipe and make the changes necessary to build and run successfully on an Orange Pi. 

What might those changes be? Haven't a clue, but back when we were still using a single thread on diyAudio.com as our forum, a user reported he had managed to get a much earlier version working on his Orange Pi, sort of.  You can search the moOde Audio thread there.

Similarly, I ported an earlier version of moOde to a Cubox-i4pro several years ago as an exercise. Enough of it worked for me to feel I had earned my merit badge, but I wouldn't do it again. The current RPi is cheap, ubiquitous, fully capable, and enormously well supported. The Cubox-i sits in a box of forgotten toys, both literally and figuratlvely.

Keep in mind you are on your own here. Even if you get it to work, you'll have to repeat your steps every time there's a major new release of moOde.

@steeflemmens - I would try to boot with a stock r642 image and see what happens. I remember from years past when as Kent mentioned we were supporting moOde in the diyAudio thread that I added the revision code for the OrangePi to the sources so maybe it will just work.

If it doesn't work and you are able to determine what needs to be modified to get it to work then feel free to submit a PR to the moOde Git repo and it will be reviewed. Be sure to include good documentation in the PR so we don't have to go fishing through sources and diffs to figure out what it does.

It would be cool if "just try it" is successful. After posting, I searched the web and found several sources which claimed Raspbian will boot on an Orange Pi. That's half the battle.
