I've been seeing a few programs out that actually allow musicians to use audio effects for instruments on their computer rather than using pedals.

My goal is to be able to program audio effects on the computer (more specifically, synth and "dirty" noise effects like NIN), and I plan on accomplishing this sometime in the future (no set time). However, I know nothing about audio programming. Does anyone here know any sites that could help me start with audio programming? I'm planning on using the C++ language. Thanks.
It would be a whole lot easier to download something like impOSCar and just use your guitar as the input. I don't know what it would take to do VST-type programming.
