Very interresting thread! I'm a long term csounder and before giving in
to the tempation of downloading a bunch of new software I'd like to know
how these other text-based synthesizers compares to csound in terms of:
* midi-implementation. I use csound almost exclusively in realtime live
controlled from midi keyboards. Csound has dynamic voice allocation,
handles polyphony and 16 midi channels well.
* efficiency. I need to generate everything in realtime on my PIV2.4G
* ability to handle samples. With csound I mostly assemble multi-samples
peace, love & harmony
