Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Lisp for audio programming
4 projects | reddit.com/r/lisp | 17 Feb 2023
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.
Clojure Turns 15 panel discussion video

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.

Racket for Computer Music?

overtone, in clojure and using the SuperCollider engine
Let’s Make Overtone Sing Like Sonic-Pi
2 projects | reddit.com/r/Clojure | 10 May 2022
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.
Rack 2 (Virtual Eurorack)
6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 27 Dec 2021
Since some people don’t like the cathedral development style VCV rack uses, I point people to a fork of an older version of VCV rack with two features VCV rack 2 doesn’t have:
* It can run as a VST plugin, so one can use it with their favorite digital audio workstation (DAW)
* The code is BSD licensed
Here is that VST plugin fork: https://github.com/bsp2/VeeSeeVSTRack#downloads
Bespoke Synth 1.0 – open-source software modular synthesizer
17 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 14 Sep 2021
* The VST fork of VCVrack for a modular synth: https://github.com/bsp2/VeeSeeVSTRack#downloads
I would get a keyboard controller with full sized keys and a 5-pin DIN MIDI out for just over $200, but that can come later.
Why I'll never create modules for VCV Rack anymore
Actually, for VCV Rack, I personally think most users will be better off using this fork of the code base which is a functional VSTi: https://github.com/bsp2/VeeSeeVSTRack#downloads
Again, I prefer the fork at https://github.com/bsp2/VeeSeeVSTRack#downloads because it’s a working VSTi, and because it’s under a BSD (not GPL) license, which has more flexibility in certain circumstances; I remember the arguments around 2001 or 2002 when there were concerns Python’s license was not “GPL compatible”, so I have always found GPL licenses pedantic.
I like this one: https://github.com/bsp2/VeeSeeVSTRack#downloads It has the old BSD VCVrack license, but it still has source code as well as Linux and Windows binaries.

If you are interested in experimenting with modular synthesis, check out VCV Rack. It's an Eurorack simulator with a huge number of modules, many of which are open source.
Omri Cohen recently hosted the Mycelium Symposium where many creators showed some interesting possibilities using VCV Rack.
