After many episodes focused on the Processing programming language, now we are going to focus on sound for a while. Even it's possible to produce sound on Processing, the SuperCollider programming language is a much more powerful tool for dealing with sound manipulation.
But instead of focusing just on sound and forgetting about graphics, we will combine both worlds. Processing and Supercollider can communicate with each other by sending OSC messages. You can imagine this as sending e-mails to each other, but in a much more efficient way. Processing can tell SuperCollider to play sounds, and SuperCollider can tell Processing to display graphics. We will see some examples very soon.
