You might be aware that there is actually a real-time audio
programming environment built on top of SND that is similar in a way
to ChucK and has a hard real-time garbage collector.  DSP algorithms
written in Scheme (or perhaps a DSL based on Scheme) are dynamically
compiled to C, then to native code by gcc, and then dynamically loaded
and executed.

I've played with it a little and it is very cool.


It takes a bit of set-up and is intended to be used with Emacs.
