I'm wanting to learn an audio programming language and I'm curious how useful SuperCollider is. I mean, I want to learn it pretty thoroughly and I want to know if it's worth my time. Is it pretty mainstream as far as audio programming goes? Will it be around a while? Is there a better alternative? (like just learning C?) I mostly would like to draw on the wealth of knowledge of UG users since a lot of you are well versed in areas like this. Any suggestions?
wrong forum. this isnt gear building or customizing.

plus UG isnt the best place to ask about smt like this. you'd have much better luck on a forum specializing in recording. you might get smt good in R&R (riffs and recording) though.
