Lisp for audio programming

Are you talking synthesizers? If yes, then Overtone is a great project for that, if you are OK with using clojure.4 projects | reddit.com/r/lisp | 17 Feb 2023
I've never actually used it myself. I've preferred systems that talk to SuperCollider, like overtone, because it's already rock solid and has lots of good DSP built in.

Thanks. I don't know to what extend its "better-because-of-clojure" but I also found overtone https://github.com/overtone/overtone which should be good fun (though the underlying synthesizer is supercollider/C++).
Music Programming for Java and JVM Languages

You might want to look at Overtone, which is a clojure environment built on top of overtone, and which integrates with processing and a few other similar things.
Sonic Pi – The Live Coding Music Synth for Everyone

> I'm fluent in Python but find the use of colons is the real sticking point.
The you'd probably have hated its predecessor which was all about the parentheses: https://overtone.github.io/
It's too bad that superficial stuff like which characters you need to type is holding you back. Getting used to Ruby when you're familiar with Python is no big deal. I would just stick with it
Can I create an application to help me work out my drums rudiments in emacs

There's a project you may find interesting: https://overtone.github.io/. Besides sound/synthesis stuff, it has https://github.com/overtone/midi-clj library, which allows you to write MIDI as lisp (Clojure, to be precise) code. Emacs has great support for Clojure programming (via Cider), and REPL-based development is perfect for writing music.

Let’s Make Overtone Sing Like Sonic-Pi

It's overtone.live that has a problem with windows, as documented here . It's used in the overtone playground project and that's probably the reason why I couldn't get it to work.
Beginner - where to learn?

https://vcvrack.com/ goes even further . It really forces you however to think of synthesizers in their fundamental terms; if you're familiar with programming, TAL and Tyrell are more like higher-level languages while VCV is machine language. You can make anything, but you have to build everything from scratch .

Get Into Music: Variety Pack Software Bundle

VCV Rack is going to be intimidating if you're a beginner (it's certainly intimidating to me), but if you have any interest in modular synthesis, this lets you emulate your own modular synth. Endless possibilities once you climb that learning curve
