Software

http://puredata.info/ – online community for Pure Data (includes free downloads of latest editions).
Cycling74 – Makers of Max/MSP.
HighC – based of Xenakis’ UPIC system, great composition tool.
PaulStretch and HyperMammut – PaulStretch is a rather fantastic time stretching program. I stretched a 3 minute track into something that would have taken several millenia to play (computer didn’t like it very much). HyperMammut is similarly impressive in its radical take on Fourier transforms. High quality squelchiness. They’re free!
SPEAR – another free FFT program.
RTcmix – programming language well suited for algorithmic composition. There’s also an rtcmix~ Max/MSP external for extra fun!
