hardware - amd 64
software - the goal is to do the entire job with a single piece of
software. no gui for live acts, just hardware MIDI controllers.

for me, those factors are (a) playing live with (b) algorythmic
compostion, and (c) synths/fx that no one else uses. and of course (d)
proper software must be GPL.
either csound and supercolider are (d) and powerful enough for (b) &
(c), but i'm interested if one of them performs better for (a).

well, i've been on csound for quite a long while, but heard about
supercollider too much, and finally i have to decide is it worth to
give it a try :)

sex, bike, open source!
