Thanks to Mark for this comment on application development:
“The obvious first choice — SuperCollider
Though, recently, I’ve had a lot of fun playing with the various music libraries for Processing.”
I should really have qualified my earlier post by saying that what I’m really after is a language for making palm or windows mobile applications, and ideally on board development at that.
At the moment using iziBasic and vizibasic is great, but there are limitations. I can’t write anything that will really manipulate sounds, and that’s what I’d like to do.
I’m not sure if mobile processing is what I need, but maybe I should look into it again.
