puredata patches get very messy quickly and supercollider feels overcomplicated and even after watching and reading hours of tutorials I can't get my head around it. Anybody got other recommendations for things for building bits of unusual audio/music software without having to do all that tedious mucking about with lower level DSP?
my only real requirement is that it run on linux and is (preferably) free. I should probably actually learn supercollider but working in supercollider feels like I'm fighting against it. Maybe I just haven't learned to "think in supercollider" yet.
