Question: I have been working as a coder mainly of web apps and database stuff (sql server, oracle, informix) for about 15 years. My passion is music, and I went to school for recording at MTSU. I want to finally bring those two things together, but I don’t know where to start, really. I have little experience working with audio in code, and I haven’t touched C or C++ since college. Any advice on where to begin? I can obviously just dive in head first, but I would value your feedback. Thanks!!!

    It's always hard to advise people how to start, considering I started this stuff so long ago. Writing JSFX and ReaScripts in REAPER can be a fun way, though, since you can live-program and don't have to deal with too much boilerplate...

    Have a look at music-programming languages like Super Collider. This really brings both worlds together.

    I'm in a very similar boat, although I *DO* have an initial goal; which is to recreate 2 pieces of now inaccessible, quite outdated software. However I feel it deserves it's own question to Justin. But, perhaps our goals will align, and we could work together....?
