sound/audio app programming
I want to work on sound and audio apps - stuff like Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Cubase, Emagic, etc. Does anyone reading this forum do this type of work? I know the basic skills required to get into this type of work, but am interested in learning more about what the field is like.
I'd look at the ALSA development lists.
I work in this field choppy.

Java has the Java Media Framework (but if you look hard enough there's an API for every language/platform combination). Reading books about JMF and friends are a great way to learn the high level stuff that utilizes the final doodat you write in a user friendly manner.
Take a look at Buzz.
thanks. i guess i phrased the question wrong. I know about most of the open source projects, and what is involved with audio programming. i was more wondering if anyone actually worked within the field and could tell me about working conditions, positions available, salaries, etc.
No, I think you word it okay, we just answered it wrong. I don't think you are asking in the best possible forum, try an audio programming forum for that sort of question.
