Just my .001 on csound vs chuck:

I always loved csound! It's well documented, and runs very, very 
efficiently! I used it live for a couple of years as a midi controlled 
softsynth. However I never finished a single composition in csound, 
because of it's score format. With blue as a front end it gets a lot better.

I always loved chuck! It's also very well documented, but it's much 
slower. I build a live system entirely in chuck, and played gigs with 
it, but it was taxing my computer to the extend that the system became 

I'm now redoing my chuck system, but using renoise (closed source, 
multi-platform tracker) as audio engine, controlled with OSC from chuck. 
It looks really promissing, renoise is really fast, offers all those 
nice gui things (crossfade samples, multi sampled instruments, a mixer, 
lots of effects) and chuck offers... well everything else :-)
