Has anyone taken a close look at Ocaml for real-time DSP?
I'm into functional languages, having had a lot of fun with Faust
lately, and I've been interested in a functional language for more
general synth/effect plug-in writing.
Thanks for the very interesting discussion.
By the way, here's the link to Faust, just in case:
I don't recall if it got mentioned yet. It's a functional language for
DSP that compiled to efficient C/C++ code.
