DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the chuck commands.
chuck is a new audio programming language for real-time synthesis, composition, and performance, which runs on commodity operating systems.
chuck presents a new time-based concurrent programming model, which supports multiple, simultaneous, dynamic control rates, and the ability to add, remove, and modify code, on-the-fly, while the program is running, without stopping or restarting.
Use chuck for jack audio interfaces, chuck.alsa to access alsa devices, and chuck.oss to access oss devices.
