For those who are starting out in DSP. You may want to check JesuSonic by 
Cockos (Justin Frankel (Winamp) and company)

Its currently only available with the Reaper DAW, but I believe it is soon 
to be released officially as a standalone VST effect (which then can be 
loaded in any VST host).

"...JS is a scripting language which is compiled on the fly and allows you 
to modify and/or generate audio and MIDI, as well as draw custom vector 
based UI and analysis displays.

JS effects are simple text files, which when loaded in REAPER become full 
featured plug-ins. You can try loading existing JS effects and since they 
are distributed in source form, you can also edit existing effects to suit 
your needs (we recommend if editing an existing effect you save it as 
something with a new name--if you do not you may lose your changes when 
upgrading REAPER). "


Tutorials by Michael Gruhn:

Example code:
spl0 = .125 * sin(2*$pi*440*t);
t += 1 / srate ;
spl1 = spl0 ;

Everything is double precision.
It has build in editor and realtime debugging.
You are writing everything in pseudo code, so it is very easy to port to 
other languages.
