About SuperCollider

SuperCollider has established itself as probably the most powerful programming environment for real time sound synthesis, algorithmic/generative music and all sorts of other audio­related applications. It is widely used by artists and scientists alike for both research and actual artistic creation. It features a powerful state­-of­-the­-art sound engine and an easy to learn fully featured object oriented language. More, it is open­source and totally free of charge.
