: I am into pro audio and would find it extremely usefull to be able to write some simple audio programs for myself. (calculating certain frequencies, generating tones, ect.) I guess my question is what languge should I begin learning? Are certain languages more focused towards audio?
I don't know of any language specializing in audio.
Maybe try working with c, c++ or assembly. These languages give a lot of control and efficiency when it comes to calculations and input/output with files(ie. audio files). Learning c first is good. Assembly can be used from within your c code so it becomes easy to learn. Some people have told me that drivers are best made with c and assembly, however, I've never done it.
If you learn any audio formats or have any success programming with audio files, please contact me... I want to learn more about sound recognition(AI) and processing of audio data myself.
