Yesterday, I finally had the opportunity to check ChucK out. Early exit polls suggest that ChucK is awesome!!
What is ChucK?
ChucK is a new (and developing) audio programming language for real-time synthesis, composition, performance, and now, analysis – fully supported on MacOS X, Windows, and Linux. ChucK presents a new time-based, concurrent programming model that’s highly precise and expressive (we call this strongly-timed), as well as dynamic control rates, and the ability to add and modify code on-the-fly.
Perhaps there is a live coding performance in my future.
