Which Processor? Answered

Hello everyone. I'm new here and I have a quick question about processors. I'm working on a project that requires a device to take inputs piezo buzzer elements and trigger an LED. The catch is I need a programmable chip so I can have pre-set outputs on the LEDs. I'd need something that can be rewritten (like an EEPROM) I've been thinking abuot using a PIC or a BASIC Stamp but I'd though I'd do a bit of research first.

If you get an arduino there is an example program to show you how to solve almost this exact problem Check out their website, and the associated playground and forums

Did you see How to Choose a Microcontroller ?
I dunno if it's helpful; the conclusion is basically that it's hard to go wrong; nearly everything is reprogrammable these days.
